COMMUNITY INVITED TO MEETINGS ON ARMIDALE SHOWGROUND PLAN

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has today announced the administrator of the historic Armidale Showground will hold two public meetings this month to seek community ideas and input into a new business plan for the community facility.

 

Last month, following a number of resignations from the Showground Reserve Trust, locally-based Group Leader of the Department of Primary Indistries office, Rodney O’Brien, was appointed as showground administrator.

 

“We are asking the public to contribute their ideas for the showground site and operations, including possible future uses, at two community meetings,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“Over the next six to 12 months a new trust will be established to manage the showground.

 

“The business plan will help the trust to make a good start and provide a sound basis to plan for the future.

 

“A consultant, MAK Planning and Design, is advising on the development of the business plan and the views of the community are vital in that process.

 

“This is an opportunity for community voices to be heard and I urge anyone with an interest in the showground to attend one of the sessions.”

 

The meetings will be held at the Meals on Wheels Pavilion at the showground on:

 

  • Monday, 22 June, 5.30 to 6:30pm
  • Tuesday, 23 June, 3 to 4pm
