East Bunbury residents are invited to be part of a new program to bring them closer to City of Bunbury councillors and staff.

The Community Street Meets will be rolled out across the city, starting in East Bunbury on February 27.

The street meets will give community members an opportunity to talk to city staff and councillors about current and upcoming projects for the area.

Bunbury Mayor Gary Brennan encouraged all residents to get along to a street meet in their suburb to join in the conversation.

“Both the city staff and councillors value the feedback and priorities of their local community and these street meets will provide an opportunity for residents to have their say and better understand decision making processes,” he said.

“All the feedback from these meetings will be taken on board and the conversation won’t stop as the city is committed to ongoing engagement with the community.”

The public meetings will be interactive and help inform people on future decision-making in line with the city’s funding capabilities.

The East Bunbury Community Street Meet will be held from 5.30pm on February 27 at Payne Park.

There will be a launch of ongoing initiatives at the street meets to keep the community engaged and informed through ongoing communication.
