Burdekin residents and visitors are being asked to provide their views on how they think the Burdekin Theatre, Burdekin Library Ayr and adjacent public land could be best used.
Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Bill Lowis said Council was reviewing the facilities which would form the Community Hub in Ayr.
“It is our intention to build on the community atmosphere in this precinct by enabling more residents and visitors to use the facilities for recreation, entertainment and cultural activities,” he said.
“We also want to be able to manage and operate the facilities within a fiscally responsible and transparent model of operation.
“By creating a Community Hub, we are hoping to have somewhere that can be clearly identified as the heart of our community.”
Cr Lowis said Council had defined the Community Hub as a “place of vibrancy and activity, belonging to and valued by the community that supports and encourages a feeling of belonging through the provision of a central access point to a wide range of community activities, programs, entertainment and events”.
“We now want to hear views and opinions from our residents and visitors about these facilities and how we can make them better for our community to use,” he said.
The Community Hub surveys will be available from the Burdekin Shire Council’s Customer Service Centre and council’s website www.burdekin.qld.gov.au.
All responses will be confidential and further submissions are welcome from individuals or groups.
Surveying will begin at this Saturday’s Burdekin Open Day, May 30 and will close on Friday, June 19, 2015.
