Two-year action plan for Logan

IDEAS discussed at the Logan: City of Choice Summit will help formulate a two-year action plan to help improve the future of the city.

The summit, which was derived from the Douglas St riots in January, focused on the five key issues of housing, employment, safety, education and social infrastructure.

But Mayor Pam Parker said community members had also highlighted other areas which they would like to see improved.

She said in the wake of the summit, the council had committed to forming a governance committee with the community, business and government stakeholders that would help assist in implementing the plan.

"Now is when the hard work really starts," she said.

"It is our role to pull together this action plan that we can check ourselves against to ensure action is being taken and real change happens.

"Once the action plan has been finalised, Council will arrange meetings with both the State and Federal Governments to determine opportunities to collaborate and support the delivery of the action plan."

Cr Parker said the two-year action plan would help bring positive outcomes for the entire community.

"I want to see opportunities for our youth, young families and all the community," she said.

"I want to see a desirable lifestyle for all."

Cr Parker said she was heartened by the support of the community who attended the three-day summit and who shared their ideas and solutions.

Further information about the final draft of the two-year plan will be released to the community.
