SJ Real Choices has now kicked off with the first open community workshop in the Eric Senior Pavilion (the Pony Club), Serpentine on 9 March.

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale is the fastest growing community in the nation and requires new infrastructure to ensure we remain connected and thriving. In considering the projects associated with maintaining, renewing or building new infrastructure identified over the last few years, it has become clear that we can’t afford it all.

So we are asking the community to help us prioritise what we should be focussing on over the next 10 years and particularly over the next 4 years through SJ Real Choices.

In the SJ Real Choices workshops, we’ll be talking about the services and projects that are important to our community, while coming up with an affordable medium term work program that you can have confidence in. Attendees at the Serpentine workshop gave us their feedback on a number of topics including prioritising our roadworks and facilities.

Shire President Cr John Erren said Council is listening to you, so if you weren’t able to make the workshop last night please consider attending one of the 3 workshops still coming up.

The open community workshops dates are:

  • Wednesday 15 March at Byford Hall, Byford, 7pm – 9.30pm
  • Sunday 19 March at Clem Kentish Hall, Serpentine, 10am – 12.30pm, with a community sausage sizzle
  • Thursday 23 March at Mundijong Pavilion, Mundijong, 7pm – 9.30pm

The online engagement forum is now live and you can access it here http://sjrealchoices.sjshire.wa.gov.au. We understand that you may not be able to make a community workshop, but your input is invaluable to us, so please register online for the forum.

Shire President Cr John Erren said, ‘thank you to everybody who came to the SJ Real Choices Serpentine open community workshop, your time and feedback is appreciated. We look forward to continuing our innovative ‘open the books’ process next week with the Byford open community workshop.’
