A recent community survey was conducted to assist with Mareeba Shire Council’s Parks and Open Spaces Strategy.
The feedback will be analysed over the coming months and used to guide the development of the Strategy which will then be shared with the community.
Council recognises the importance of providing quality public spaces and facilities to encourage active communities and to improve the visual appeal and liveability of the Shire. To support this vision, Council is developing a Parks and Open Spaces Strategy to ensure that these public spaces are planned and managed for a growing community using sound asset management principles.
Mareeba Shire Mayor Angela Toppin thanked residents and community groups for taking the time to provide feedback.
“We received over 400 responses which will help drive our strategic vision for Council’s Parks and Open Spaces Strategy,” Cr Toppin said.
“The community feedback will give Council a better understanding of how the community currently uses our parks and open spaces and their ideas for these recreation areas.
“The information will assist us developing actions and priorities under the Parks and Open Spaces Strategy,” Cr Toppin said.
Council maintains a variety of parks and open spaces such as recreational areas, water esplanades, streetscapes, footpaths and cycleways.
