Those of you that are presently in the Cove should have received postcards last week from MidCoast Council asking you to get involved in developing the community plan for North Arm Cove and Carrington.
The postcards invite the North Arm Cove and Carrington communities to come together and develop a plan for the future of our communities, and ask residents to share their ideas by completing the postcards and dropping them off in the NACCAi letterbox at the Community Hall, or online by filling in a survey form at midcoast.nsw.gov.au/LCP.
Council would like us to share our ideas about:
- What do you love about where you live?
- What improvements or projects would you like to see happen?
- How would you like to see your community in 20 years?
Council is also encouraging us to provide feedback as groups by hosting "kitchen table conversations", as families, neighbours, and social groups. Council has prepared a guide to hosting "kitchen table conversations" which I have attached to this post.
Council is also calling for community members to become part of the steering group to prepare the community plan. Information on the steering group and nomination forms can also be found on midcoast.nsw.gov.au/LCP
The community plan is for the community, it will be prepared by the community, and will be owned by the community. Council's role is to facilitate its development, and provide assistance and guidance as needed. It will be used to guide priorities for the future.
So please get involved, share your big ideas for our community by completing the postcards or online survey and holding kitchen table conversations, and nominate for the steering committee.
Please note that the time for completing the postcards and nominating for the steering group has been extended from Wednesday 30 September to Friday 23 October.
Postcards will also be mailed to landowners in the non-urban area, and those in the villages whose postal addresses are not in the villages.
