Currently reviewing its strategic plan for youth, Directions from Young People 2016-2019, the City is calling on its younger residents to get involved and have their say on what could make Melville an even better place for young people to live.

City of Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey encouraged young people across the City to have their say in the review, which will guide and direct future plans for creating more opportunities for them.

“It is imperative that our City’s youth help us to plan for their future and that of the community by proving feedback to help us create and develop spaces, events and support services that align with what young people want and need,” he said.

“We need to know how our young people want to be involved and engaged with, and how they prefer to connect, whether it be social media, text, online or by other means.

“With National Youth Week 2016 celebrations and the launch of Youth Pitch just around the corner in April, it is a great time to raise awareness and celebrate all the positive contributions that young people bring to our community.”

The survey at www.melvillecity.com. au/youthvoice can be completed by anyone who lives, works or studies in the City of Melville.
