Join us for a conversation in Carisbrook
Did you know that $6 million will be invested in infrastructure projects in the Carisbrook and district community in the coming 12 months?
Council will host a series of conversations to share information, and answer questions about local projects including – the Recreation Reserve upgrade, Carisbrook Levee (Stage 4) and Tullaroop Creek.
We’ll also be inviting your feedback on the Carisbrook Community Plan.
In 2019, many of you participated in its development, however due to pandemic, the outcomes of the plan weren’t delivered.
This will be a chance for the community to review the plan and further contribute to key priorities for Carisbrook.

You’re invited to the Maryborough Community Dinner
Maryborough and district residents are invited to a Community Dinner to discuss future strategic priorities.
We’ll also be inviting your feedback on the 10-year Community Plan for Maryborough and District – which many of you took the time to contribute to in 2019.
You would have talked about things like what you love about Maryborough, the challenges you face and what you would like to see change or happen in the town.
Due to the pandemic, providing feedback on the outcomes was stalled, and so we are inviting you to this dinner to reconnect you to the project.
We’d also like to discuss why the plan is important, and double check that you are happy with it, and that the priorities in the plan are still relevant post COVID.
Please join Maryborough Ward Councillors and Council’s Manager Community Engagement Kylie Long on:
- Wednesday 14 July from 6.30 to 8.30pm
- Maryborough Community Hub, 48 Burns Street, Maryborough
- A light dinner will be provided for those who register
Registrations are essential by Friday 9 July for catering and COVIDSafe purposes. Contact Council’s Communications Officer Lachlan Steed on 0409 478 074 or visit www.engage.cgoldshire.vic.gov.au/communityplans
