Listen to the Future Forum series

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Lake Macquarie Future Forum series in September. We hope you found it worthwhile, we certainly did.

In case you missed it, we recorded our speakers and uploaded their presentation on the Lake Mac City Youtube page.

What happens now?

The next step is to bring together a group of community-minded people to help make sense of the thousands of great ideas we've received online, at our pop-ups and at the Future Forums. This group will co-author a new City vision and values, which will guide Council's long term plans.

Over 50 people put up their hand for the Community Reference Group. A group of 20 people will be selected to reflect a cross section of the Lake Macquarie community (based on age, gender, where you live), and they will get underway in October.
