Blacktown residents have the opportunity to discuss issues affecting their communities at monthly forums held by the Blacktown City Council.
The forums are held in different wards across the city and provide residents with an opportunity to hear about neighbourhood issues as well as have their say.
What can attendees expect?
Ward councillors, alongside Mayor Stephen Bali, bring important information to each forum.
Previous forums have been popular, with 60 to 300 guests attending. These events are intended as an opportunity for the council to engage with the community and discuss important events and developments that effect residents.
Past issues that have been discussed include the proposal to build the Energy from Waste Incinerator in Eastern Creek and plans for the second Sydney airport in Badgerys Creek.
April’s community forum
The next forum will be held at the Ponds Community Hub on April 30 from 7pm to 9pm.
According to the council’s Facebook event page there will be updates on the following topics:
– Energy from Waste Incinerator
– upgrades for major roads
– rolling out parks and play spaces
These forums are a great way to learn about what is happening in your suburb and to engage with community issues, so it is well worth heading along regularly if you live or work in Blacktown.
