TRANSPORT, education and health will be some of the key topics discussed at the Wimmera Southern Mallee Regional Assembly next month.
The assembly will be on August 2 and discuss the future of the region.
Wimmera Southern Mallee Regional Partnership chairman and Murra Warra farmer David Jochinke said the event would follow on from last year’s successful assembly.
'This year we want to dig a little deeper into some of the key issues and opportunities that we heard about last year,” he said.
Issues discussed at last year’s assembly included infrastructure, transport, education, health, economic development, community, energy and the environment.
“We are very much looking forward to hearing from our residents about how we can make the Wimmera and southern Mallee an even better place to live, work and play,” Mr Jochinke said.
The event will also discuss progress made by the regional partnership since the previous assembly and provide opportunities for attendees to identify new projects, issues and opportunities.
People can still join in the discussion, even if they can’t attend the assembly. A large number of postcards will be distributed seeking big, innovative or original ideas to make the region's future better.
Reply paid postcards will be available through councils, libraries, cafes and community centres.
People can also add their comments online at the regional partnership’s website https://engage.vic.gov.au/wimmera-southern-mallee or on the assembly’s Facebook page.
The Wimmera Southern Mallee Regional Assembly will be at the Horsham Town Hall from 5.30pm to 8.30pm.
