Like many of you, my weekdays are busy with work, Council, exercise, appointments and social events.

So I love Saturday mornings when I get a chance to park the car and walk throughout the city to do some shopping and buy a coffee. It’s lovely seeing people out and about, hearing what has been happening.

Currently Council has proposed a new Parking Management Plan.

This plan is about ensuring car parking within our city in accessible and time limits are easy to interpret.

We all use the car parking in the city for different reasons. You might be a visitor here for an appointment, a local coming into town for shopping or working within the CBD.

Your reasons for visiting and parking are varied and so will your view be on what is going to best for our community. So pop into the Council offices and view the proposed plan and let us know what you think.

There is still time to be involved in the Horsham Rural City Talks Community Conversations.

Conversation kits can be downloaded from the Council website or you can collect them from the Civic Centre.

All the information and tools you need to host a conversation are provided within the kit. So bring your friends, family and work colleagues together and capture all the great ideas of what you want for our community over the next 20 years.

If you are at the pub having a drink have a chat about the future and drop us a line. For those chairing a meeting of one of the services clubs or sports clubs ask the folks if it is okay spend a little extra time at your meeting to work through the conversation kit.

Whether you are young or old, married or single love the arts or enjoy playing sport your contribution is very important.

The survey about what should happen next with the Roberts Avenue pop up park finishes at the end of the month. The survey is available here or next time you are at the park scan the QR code and answer the questions. 

This weekend we observe Anzac Day, a day that is significant for many within our community. The Australia we have today is because of the sacrifices men and women made and continue to make. Lest We Forget.
