Community invited to Amity Point township meeting

North Stradbroke Island residents are invited to have their say at the next Straddie Township meeting, to be held at Amity Point Saturday 29 August.

Including Redland City Mayor Karen Williams, Councillor Craig Ogilvie and the Member for Cleveland Mark Robinson, the meeting will discuss wide ranging topics from transport to the future of Straddie post sand-mining.

“Straddie is going through some significant changes at present and these regular township meetings are an important forum for Council to share information and hear what is important to residents,” Cr Williams said.

“Items to be discussed at this meeting include the need for a plan for Straddie’s transition away from mining, transport planning for the island and updates on Straddie specific projects.

“This meeting is specifically for the Straddie community so residents are encouraged to submit agenda items so they can get the information they need from the meeting.  Agenda items can be submitted by visiting Council’s website.”

Division 2 Councillor for North Stradbroke Island Craig Ogilvie said community meetings were an important communication forum for Straddie residents.

“Straddie is a unique place, and being an island means there are different challenges and opportunities to those experienced by mainland communities,” he said.

“The township meetings aim to foster a collaborative approach between government, community and the business sector and deliver feedback, partnerships and action on island issues.”

There is no need to book, but for more information, visit Council’s website.
