My Town - Meredith
Meredith is a small town with a country atmosphere. It is situated about half way between Ballarat and Geelong - "Midway on the Midland Highway”.
It has a vibrant community with many people donating their time and energy to organise events and gatherings.
The name 'Meredith' can also be associated with the Meredith Music Festival - although this is not an event organised by the community, many community groups contribute to its success every year.
Meredith Community Plan
Community planning is a program where community members come together to develop and implement Community Plans to improve where they live.
Local residents volunteer as community coordinators to coordinate the development and implementation of a Community Plan. To develop this plan, community coordinators seek other residents' ideas and opinions via surveys, interviews and public meetings.
Residents ideas are voted on to identify the top priority projects for the community for the upcoming three year period.
The coordinators assist local residents, groups and others who are passionate about a particular project in the Community Plan to action it.
