What's your view Wagga?

05 February, 2016

Have something to say about Council projects and planning processes but don’t have a lot of time?

The People’s Panel could be for you!

The People's Panel is evolving!

Following the success of the People’s Panel in 2015, we are now expanding it so that more people can contribute in more ways.

The Panel was launched in February last year with nearly one hundred residents and group representatives contributing to online discussions on seven different topics.

To be a part of the Panel this year all you have to do is click "register" to sign up then go to the website to be a part of the conversation.

As well as online forums and surveys, there will be opportunities to take part in focus groups and forums. This will allow you to meet with Council staff involved in the projects and other people that want to be a part of Council’s decision making process.

The Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga, Councillor Rod Kendall, is urging residents to make their opinion count.

“We can’t make informed decisions on behalf of the community unless you tell us what you think about certain projects and processes,” Councillor Kendall said.

“No matter how busy you are, the Your Say website and People’s Panel opportunities make it easy for you to ensure that your voice is being heard in your own time.”

Caroline Love was a member of the People’s Panel in 2015 and says it is worthwhile.

“It has been really interesting to be a part of the conversation and hear different views on various topics and it has made me more aware of Council planning and processes,” she said.

“Being a part of Council’s decision making process is also great way to be a part of the local community.

“I feel it hasn’t taken up a lot of my time and the system makes it really easy to contribute when you can.”

First up we want to hear what ideas you have for how Council’s community education truck could be used in your area.
