Residents drafted to advise council


INVITATIONS are being sent to more than 10,000 Kingston residents inviting them to take part in a panel to develop a plan for the area’s future.

Kingston mayor Steve Staikos said council will “work closely” with the 40-person panel “that demographically represents our diverse community.”

“The community panel will be given the task of developing a new community vision for Kingston,” he said. “They will also be key advisors to councillors on the new four-year council plan and other key strategies including Kingston’s health and wellbeing plan, asset plan and financial plan.

“If you are passionate about Kingston’s future we’d love you to share your ideas via our online survey and also take part in the community panel if you receive an invitation. We need the community’s input to capture what is important to you so together we can make Kingston the best place to live, work and play now and into the future. The community will be invited to give feedback at many stages along the way and will really help drive our plans for the future.” 

Invitations to join the community panel will be sent to 11,000 residents. 

A community-wide online survey is open until 12 March. To participate or to read more information about the program visit
