Community to lead vision for the City’s future

City of Karratha is conducting a major review of its most significant future planning document and is calling on the community to shape its vision for the future.

The City is reviewing its Strategic Community Plan, which addresses the challenges we face and sets out what actions we will take in the next 10 years to work towards achieving this.

As part of this review, the City is launching an enhanced and in-depth approach to community engagement in a new ‘What We Make It’ project.

The comprehensive engagement project will begin on Monday 17 April, working to create a community-led vision which will inform Council decision-making over the next decade. 

The engagement program will kick off with community consultation sessions occurring in each town, closely followed by workshops aimed at our not-for-profit, arts and business sectors.

City of Karratha Mayor Daniel Scott said he wanted to hear from the community themselves and have residents shape our future.

“The ten-year vision for the City of Karratha should reflect the aspirations and priorities of our community, and we want residents to be a part of shaping the future,” Cr Scott said.

“This vision belongs to the community, and we want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to meet with us, share ideas, and help us create a future for each of our five towns that they will be proud of and look forward to.

“This is a scale of engagement not previously carried out by Council and includes bespoke programs and opportunities unique to individual communities.”
