MidCoast Council are rolling out a series of community workshops across the region starting March 26 at Old Bar.
Council say they intend the workshops for residents to "identify the things that matter to them", and for council to understand issues at a local level, and gain feedback from the community.
The workshops are expected to take around two hours each session and will be facilitated so everyone has a chance to talk. Light refreshments will be available at the workshops.
“With an area that spans 10,000km2 we recognise that every community is different and has different priorities”, council's general manager, Adrian Panuccio said.
“These forums are an opportunity for us to drill down at a very local level, opening an exchange of information that will ultimately see us working together with local communities to achieve more”.
Workshops will run from March 26 to May 9, and will occur at Old Bar, Nabiac, Stroud, Hallidays Point, Taree, Forster, Gloucester, Harrington, Bulahdelah, Pacific Palms, Wingham and Tea Gardens.
Locals are encouraged to registered a question or specific area of interest before the workshop they are attending by visiting www.midcoast.nsw.gov.au/questionsforcouncil.
Two workshops are being held in March:
Old Bar at Club Old Bar at 6pm on Tuesday, March 26.
Nabiac at the Showground Hall at 6pm on Thursday, March 28.
