Olive Estate locals begin planning facilities
FOLLOWING the meeting between Livingstone Shire Council and Glenlee residents to develop a concept master plan for Glenlee Park, council will meet with Olive Estate locals to talk about future enhancements for George Olive Park.
After hearing about council's work in Glenlee to improve the local recreation area, Olive Estate residents were quick to approach council for a similar meeting to develop plans in their park and recreation reserve areas.
Mayor Bill Ludwig said it was great to see community members taking the time to meet with council and share their views on what they would like to see happen in their areas.
"Council working together closely with our communities to deliver positive outcomes and make a difference is what local government should be about," Cr Ludwig said.
Shire wide community forums were previously held in August.
"In most cases local communities want amenities, playground equipment, sport and family-friendly spaces that will enhance their area and provide healthy recreational activities for young and old," Cr Ludwig said.
"This is about encouraging and empowering communities to be part of the decision making process to create local ownership to ensure projects reflect what residents really want and need."
The meeting will allow Olive Estate residents to sit down and talk with council about what facilities and areas they would like to have at George Olive Park.
From there, council will be able to put together a draft plan
