IMAGINE Vincent workshop and launch attendees “relished” the opportunity to help set the agenda for the City of Vincent’s future, according to Mayor Emma Cole.

The City’s biggest community consultation process to date to help shape the area’s future kicked off on June 8 at the North Perth Town Hall, with about 90 people dropping by to have their say.

They also helped form seven questions that will be used at future consultation events and gatherings which will help drive the conversation about Vincent.

Ms Cole said feedback she received was that people were appreciative to be involved so early in the process.

“People really liked being involved from the start of the process and being asked to come up with the questions to set the tone,” she said.

She said some people were pleasantly surprised with the chance to help form the questions.

“The questions are broad and encompass different aspects, which the Imagine Vincent team will take to many groups in the community, such as schools, to capture different ages, stages, demographics and cultural backgrounds,” she said.
