CANNING locals can play a part in what the future of their city looks like, with a month-long schedule of workshops covering everything from disability and environment to business and sport.
City of Canning mayor Paul Ng said the consultation process with residents and ratepayers would help inform them of the community’s needs and would help shape the City’s Community Infrastructure Plan, which will include buildings, halls, skate parks, playing fields, parks and cycling facilities.
“We know our City is going to grow. The projections show our population increasing to 126,786 by 2036 and we need to be well prepared to deal with the increase and service provision in the City,” he said.
“What we need to know is what our community would like to see, what it is that can be done better and how we can achieve some synergies like more multi-purpose facilities which are purpose built to accommodate a range of different groups and activities.”
Workshops will be held throughout March at the City of Canning’s administration building function room, unless specified otherwise.
