ALMOST 1400 people have told the City where to go as part of an online survey that will help direct future planning, services and programs.

In March, City of Melville asked residents and visitors to share their opinions and priorities in the “Tell the City Where to Go” survey, and that feedback will inform a new Strategic Community Plan.

Mayor Russell Aubrey thanked those who took part and congratulated the winner of the major prize draw.

“We had a fantastic response to this survey and I’m thrilled so many residents took the opportunity to help shape the City’s priorities and plan for the future,” he said.

“Congratulations to the winner of the $5000 Flight Centre voucher Marianne Dravnieks, a Mt Pleasant resident who plans to use her prize to visit her mother’s native town in Latvia.”

As part of the survey, respondents were asked if they wanted to be involved in the next stage of the project.

Cr Aubrey said the City was pleased more than 600 people said they wanted to participate in this next step, which would be a workshop to refine community aspirations for the next ten years.

“Because so many people want to work with us on this, we will need to randomly select and invite participants for the workshop,” he said.
