Help plan Foster’s future!

The November State election is fast approaching and Foster Community Association will conduct another Planning for Real® exercise, where voters – as they leave the polling booth – are invited to have their say about the future of Foster.

The issues identified will form the basis of a new long-term plan for the whole community.

At the last Planning for Real® exercise back in 2004, nearly 2,000 ideas were gathered, which translated into 52 key projects. Amazingly, around 80% of these projects are now either complete or well on their way to completion. They include the establishment of a children’s playground at the Showgrounds, improving access to childcare, extending the footpath to the Hospital and Rail Trail, rebuilding the bridge over Stockyard Creek, reducing the speed limit in town – and many more.

So, put your thinking caps on and share your ideas about what would make Foster an even better place in which to live, work and play.

  • What services do we need?
  • What infrastructure do we need?
  • What can we do to keep young people in the area?
  • We’re all getting older … what can we do for our ageing future?
  • What businesses should be encouraged?
  • What do tourists need?
  • What about the environment?

Your ideas count, so have your say about the future of our town.
