Lord Mayor Michael Harbison said it is important for the whole community to take part in the public consultation which begins Thursday 29 April and runs until Wednesday 19 May.

“Now is the time for the public to have their say on the issues that are important to them. We want to hear feedback about Council’s proposed services, programs and projects for 2010-11.

“Adelaide City Council is committed to the growth and improvement of the City of Adelaide. We are offering a number of public information sessions to answer any questions the community has,” said the Lord Mayor.

Key priorities for 2010-2011 draft Annual Business Plan and Budget include:

  • The progression of major public realm projects such as Victoria Square/Tarndanyangga and Victoria Park/Bakkabakkandi
  • Creating an outstanding City of distinctive and exciting design complemented by heritage preservation
  • Ensuring an accessible and connected City and developing all forms of transport including public transport, private vehicles, pedestrian and cycling
  • Supporting the City’s creativity, recreation, cultural and artistic activity, and exciting events to promote a culturally vibrant City
  • A commitment to a prosperous Capital City
  • A strong focus on environmental sustainability
  • Prudent financial management to ensure the financial sustainability of
    Council services
  • Centralisation of administrative functions to achieve efficiencies and
    greater effectiveness
