IMAGINE Vincent, the City of Vincent’s largest community engagement project to date, has garnered some quirky ideas so far, and organisers are keen to hear more.

The City has received about 650 ideas from more than 700 people since the project was launched in June.

Feedback will be used to inform and develop the City’s Strategic Community Plan 2018-2028, which will set the long-term direction and focus for the council’s planning, budget and resource allocation process.

Some out-of-the ordinary ideas put forward so far have included public transport credits for doing squats at bus stops and hover boards.

North Perth Primary school students on August 8 suggested solar powered cars and electric shoes as some of the more unconventional ideas and also wall murals and more trees.

Other ideas from residents include shutting down some streets permanentlu for more public space and light rail.

The Imagine Vincent Cup will be held at Leederville Oval on August 19 from 1pm as part of the community engagement process.

A footy game will be played between Subiaco Lions and the West Perth Falcons and there will also be an Imagine Vincent Pop Up, a photo booth and free kids’ activities.

Feedback is open until September, with more events scheduled until the closing date.

A draft will be developed in October and finalised in November, with the aim of adopting it in December.
