Proserpine residents will soon have the opportunity to share their ideas for the future of Proserpine and Lake Proserpine, with public consultation taking place from tomorrow, between 1 December 2016 and 28 February 2017.
Whitsunday Regional Council is developing a Master Plan to drive urban growth and economic development, including tourism attraction, for Proserpine.
Extensive public consultation will be undertaken with residents and community groups over the next three months to capture all ideas and suggestions.
Residents will be able to get involved and have their say via a number of ways, including public forums at the Proserpine Community Centre, public display stalls at several community events, face-to-face meetings at the 55 Main Street shopfront (opening soon) and online at Your Say Whitsunday.
On Friday 2 December, Council will hold a public display stall at the Quota Christmas Markets at Les Stagg Oval in Proserpine.
Mayor Andrew Willcox is encouraging all Proserpine residents to think about unlocking the potential of the town.
“We want all Proserpine residents to put your thinking caps on and let us know your ideas for the future of the town,” he said.
“What types of activities and public spaces do you think we need to be a thriving, bustling town? What types of tourist attractions do you think will bring visitors to the town?”
“All suggestions are welcome, and we will consider all ideas when putting together the draft Master Plan document over the next six months.”
Council is also working on the wider Whitsunday Regional Economic Development Strategy, which looks at the future economic growth of the entire Whitsunday region, including Proserpine.
The findings from the Proserpine Master Plan consultation will feed into the Economic Development Strategy.
Council will release the full activity program, with all dates and locations for the Proserpine Master Plan consultation, in the next few weeks.
