BENDIGO region residents are being encouraged to have their say on the future of the Rosalind Park Recreation Reserve Precinct.
Mayor Lisa Ruffell said the precinct, at the heart of the city centre, was one of Bendigo’s most important public places.
“Council is actively engaging with the community to ensure they have ample opportunity to have their say on the issues that matter to them,” Cr Ruffell said.
“We want residents to tell us their vision for this wonderful part of our city so we can begin developing the Rosalind Park Recreation Reserve Master Plan.”
Residents are invited to invest 90 minutes of their time to collaborate in the creation of a vision for the precinct at a workshop on Tuesday September 10, from 6.30pm to 8pm at the Bendigo Bowls Club.
“Rosalind Park combines a vast array of functions and attractions which make it a destination and place of interest for virtually everyone in Greater Bendigo as well as the city’s visitors,” Cr Ruffell said.
“Creating a vision for the Rosalind Park Recreation Reserve Precinct is a big challenge because of the diversity of views about it.
“The workshop is an opportunity for people to be creative but also to keep in mind that the master plan needs to be practical and achievable.”
She said the city first developed a master plan for the park in 2004 but that a lot had changed in the past 10 years and a fresh approach was needed. This project will create a contemporary vision, and will also cover design, management and budget issues.
Interested participants are encouraged to RSVP to 5434 6148 or firstname.lastname@example.org to help the planning of the workshop.
