Want your say in how an inclusive Casey should look like?
Expressions of interest are being sought from residents who would like to participate in the Inclusive Casey Community Forum on Saturday 11 November.
Casey Council is inviting all people who live, work, study and play in Casey to register their interest to take part in this forum, which will assist in the development of the Inclusive Casey Strategic Framework in 2018.
City of Casey Mayor Sam Aziz said the forum would enable people to have their aspirations met, feel valued and have a sense of belonging and connectedness to Casey.
He said building on the success of council’s new engagement approach through Casey Next and the People’s Panel, council was eager to hear from the community.
“With well over a third of Casey’s residents born overseas, 38 per cent of residents speaking a language other than English at home, and with more than 120 religious faiths represented within the city, it’s important that we hear from a wide range of voices that reflect the demographic characteristics of our community”, Cr Aziz said.
“The forum will be made up of 100 people, aged over 18. Additional consultation will be occurring with our younger residents to ensure their views are also represented”.
“A rigorous selection process will be undertaken to ensure we get the right mix of participants at the forum, and will be based on demographic details such as age, suburb, background and gender,” he said.
The forum will be held on Saturday 11 November, 9am to 12.30pm at Bunjil Place.
Council will provide each participant a $40 gift voucher for generously giving up their time.
