Moira Shire Draft Recreation Strategy - Community feedback sessions

Publish Date: 17/05/2016

Moira Shire is urging local residents, business and tourism operators to have their say on Moira’s draft 2016-2026 Recreation Strategy this week at community drop in sessions in Cobram, Numurkah, Nathalia and Yarrawonga.

Mayor Gary Cleveland said drop in sessions this week were the ideal time for anyone with an interest in the future of sport and recreation in our shire to meet with Council staff to understand what’s in the strategy and share their ideas.

“Our drop in sessions offer individuals or small groups an opportunity to meet with Council staff and we encourage anyone interested in this opportunity to book a spot to ensure you do not miss out.

 “You can share your thoughts on the spot at a drop in session or forward your feedback to us by 1 June 2016,” said Mayor Cleveland.

“Sport and recreation is important to our community, business and tourism. Some 80 per cent of Moira Shire residents participate in some form of sport or recreation and it is also a big tourism drawcard, bringing visitors and events to our region,” Mayor Cleveland said.

The draft strategy poses questions about the future of recreation in the shire and will inform Council’s future investment and development direction for the next 10 years.

Details of the sessions are:

Wednesday 18 May             9am-12pm                 Moira Shire Office, Cobram

Wednesday 18 May             1pm-4pm                   Moira Shire Office, Yarrawonga

Thursday 19 May                 9am-12pm                 Numurkah Visitor Information Centre

Thursday 19 May                 1pm-4pm                   Barmah Heritage Centre, Nathalia

“You can book a time by calling our Customer Service team on 5871 9222,” Mayor Cleveland said.

The draft Strategy and further information on how to provide feedback is available on Council’s website and from its service centres.
