Pitch My Project initiative now open

Strathbogie Shire Council is launching the Pitch My Project initiative for a second time after a successful inaugural year.

The ‘Pitch My Project’ initiative was first established during the engagement process for the recent 2021/22 Budget.

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Cr Laura Binks explained what the concept was all about.

“The project called on local residents and community groups to submit their projects for funding in the recent Budget,” Cr Binks said.

“Council received incredible submissions and we were proud to be able to deliver funding to more than 10 projects through the initiative.”

Cr Binks said Council was calling on the community to “pitch their projects” far earlier this time around so that those receiving funding can be included in next year’s Draft Budget.

“The process is all part of Council’s commitment to community engagement,” Cr Binks said.

“We are committed to improving on ways we can include our community in decision-making because, with the community’s input, we make better decisions.

“That is why we are launching ‘Pitch My Project’ much earlier so that we can include the amazing projects that receive funding into our next Draft Budget which will go out to the community for review before being adopted.

“This will ensure we have better planning, better engagement and better community input as an engaged, responsive and listening council.”

Submission close at 5pm on Friday, December 31, 2021.
