How can we make our communities more enjoyable places to live?
Published 21 October 2022
Parks, playgrounds, sports, arts and culture. We know these are the things that contribute to our community’s well-being and promote a sense of vibrancy in our region. Council wants your opinion on how we can make them even better.
Mayor Peter Flannery said the latest round of the Moreton Says survey was honing-in on feedback from previous surveys.
“Overwhelmingly locals have told us that access to green space, public facilities and recreational activities play an important role in their lives in Moreton Bay,” he said.
“We want to understand how people currently use these spaces and programs, and if they don’t, what’s holding them back.
“As we plan for population growth, we must also plan our great spaces in the communities we love so please get online and have your say in this short ten minute survey.
“Already more than 1,500 people have responded to this survey, which is a good start, but I want to see more to ensure everyone has a say.
“Help us get the word out by telling everyone at your sporting club, theatre group, book club, mums’ group, in fact tell everyone you know that this is their chance to make their opinions heard.
“How do we ensure that these important local facilities and services meet your expectations for the future?
“It is my driving passion to make decisions today that will guarantee Moreton Bay Region is the best place in SEQ to live, work, and play into the future.
“The population growth we’re experiencing, the opportunities associated with the Olympics, the untapped potential of The Mill PDA and the momentum behind our new Regional Economic Development Strategy almost guarantee us success on the other side of COVID.
“But I want to assure the community that in our decision-making we make we’ll have your feedback from the Moreton Says survey at heart.
“When this Council was elected we promised to engage more with our community and act on your priorities, which is exactly what we’re doing.”
