Ideas workshop for Maleny Community Precinct
Caloundra City Council is encouraging Maleny residents to share their ideas about the future of the 130 hectare Maleny Community Precinct site (formerly Porters and Armstrong farms) at a workshop and series of displays to be held at Maleny next month.
Caloundra City Mayor Don Aldous said that the State Government's SEQ Regional Plan, the foundation for Council's own Draft Local Growth Management Strategy, identified the Maleny Community Precinct, east of the Maleny Town Centre, as a Major Development area.
This identification requires Council to develop a Structure Plan which will guide the detailed planning of the precinct
"The most vital part of developing a Structure Plan is community engagement. I encourage residents to get involved in the process of developing options for the future uses of the Maleny Community Precinct,'' Cr Aldous said.
Division One Councillor Dick Newman said there is a number of ways that residents can get involved.
"Come along and share your ideas at the Community Ideas Workshop. Have a chat to the project team at the Maleny Branch Library. Remember that the project is about creating a shared vision and Structure Plan for the Maleny community," Cr Newman said.
The Community Ideas Workshop will be held at the Maleny RSL between 11am and 2.30pm on Saturday 3 March. The Workshop will include displays of information about the site characteristics and constraints, and a forum session and discussion to hear community views about the precinct's future.
The Council project team will also be available to talk about the project at the Maleny Branch Library at the following times
Tuesday 6 March 2pm - 6pm
Wednesday 7 March 12 noon - 4.30pm
Thursday 8 March 9.30am - 12 noon
