What would you like to see in Forrest? And what priority would you give it?

If you have a big idea for Forrest—or a small one—come to the public meeting on Sunday 4 September, 3pm at the Forrest Hall, tell us what it is, and cast a vote.

The Forrest and District Community Group is hosting the meeting to find out what our community would like to see happening here, including infrastructure projects as well as social ones. The more popular ideas raised at the meeting will feed into an updated Forrest Community Infrastructure plan, which will be used to support funding applications to Council and other levels of government over the next few years.

Some ideas that will be discussed include:

  • Building a neighbourhood safer place on the Forrest DELWP office blocks, to use as a place of last resort in a bushfire
  • Sewerage for Forrest
  • Signage

The Community Group wants you to think BIG—Forrest will soon have high-speed broadband and this could open completely new opportunities for our community. What could these be?

All are welcome to the public meeting, and each speaker will be given just two minutes to present his or her idea. Each idea will then be discussed and voted on, to create our list of community priorities.

Please bring a plate of food to share at afternoon tea at the end.
