Yendon, Lal Lal and Navigators -- planning for the future
After initially concentrating on community-specific concerns,
Yendon, Lal Lal and Navigator s residents have now developed a
shor tlist of four priorities and potential projects for their local
area through a series of community-organised meetings.
Specific projects around these priorities are presently being
scoped and an overarching Community Action Plan for the three
communities is being drafted.
Myrniong, Korobeit, Pentland Hills
Representatives from this area are working on their Community
Action Plan, incorporating local history, identification and potential
use of existing community facilities and clear objectives for the
future of the area.
Communication has been highlighted as a key area for
improvement and a number of locals are working to engage
more people in community planning for Myrniong and district.
Community representatives from Mt Eger ton have, through a
number of community gatherings, obtained a list of potential
projects which are both long and shor t term. Project teams will
then scope and work towards implementing these projects with
suppor t from the Moorabool Communities in Action team.
Fur ther development of the Community Action Plan is also
underway, with interested residents compiling a histor y of
Mt Eger ton.
