MANDURAH Matters is the community’s chance to create a shared vision for Mandurah.
The city-wide campaign was officially launched last week and follows a Notice of Motion by Mandurah Mayor Rhys Williams in July calling for a framework for a citizen-led vision for Mandurah’s future.
“Its time to draw a line in the sand,’’ he said.
“I believe Mandurah is at a crucial tipping point.
“We can be just another indistinguishable outer suburb of Perth or we can be something special.’’
“This is what the official launch of Mandurah Matters, to create our shared vision, is all about.
“A vision set and led by the community is the best way to collectively develop a clear direction for Mandurah and prioritise clear actions for all involved to achieve it.”
Mr Williams said Mandurah had some unique competitive advantages and was a destination.
“We have a fantastic environment and the blessing of being close but not too close to Perth.”
He said all residents, property owners, politicians, community groups and leaders, stakeholder organisations, investors and businesses were encouraged to get involved and share what mattered to them now as well as their aspirations for Mandurah’s future.
“The vision will be owned and delivered by the whole community.”
Stage 1 includes conversations hosted by community leaders and groups, online surveys, story telling and prioritising.
The community has until November 15 to become involved.
Stages 2 ands 3 are in November and February.
