Community Planning in Jamieson

Jamieson has a history of being active and involved in community projects - the Island, the Wine and Cheese night, the Historical Society and Jamieson Community Group and the Jazz Festival are all great examples of this.

To be able to strategically plan for the future, the Jamieson community approached Council to support them while they created their own community plan.

Community planning brings people together to identify the things that are important to them in their town or locality. Priorities and actions are noted in a community plan which belongs to the community.  These plans help Council and other government bodies by clearly telling them what is most important to each community.

The process so far
In 2012 the first in a series of community planning activities took place at the Jamieson Memorial Hall with around 40 community members attending.  The workshop discussed:

  • what community members love about Jamieson
  • ideas and projects to improve their town that could be implemented in the next 5 years
  • their visions and ideas for the future (20 years+)
  • what must never change about Jamieson
  • what Jamieson already does really well 

Jamieson Community Plan

The ideas generated at the workshop in July were put into a survey and distributed to all Jamieson and surrounds ratepayers.  The surveys were then reviewed, a community plan drafted and then officially launched on Australia Day 2014.
