Burnie Youth Council call for feedback on noticeboard idea

The Burnie Youth Council would like to see a community noticeboard installed in Burnie to provide a central location for youth to find out about events happening on the North-West Coast.

Acting Mayor Aldermen Sandra French said, “I applaud the Burnie Youth Council for putting forward their idea of a community noticeboard, particularly focussed on promoting youth events. I encourage the community to provide feedback, to help them with data, to bring to Council with their proposal.”

The Burnie Youth Council has created a survey to gage the community’s interest in having a community noticeboard.

Burnie Youth Mayor Kate Brett said, “There are a lot of youth events happening, but there is no central point to find out about these events. Not everyone has Facebook to find out about these events for young people. We hope a noticeboard where people can place their event posters, may help attendance numbers to these style of events.

“The online survey asks for everyone in the community to tell us if they think it’s a good idea. We are also keen to find out where people think it should be installed.”

The survey can be found at www.burnie.net

“The Youth Council members are hoping for over 100 people to provide feedback. Once we have collected the data and analysed if the community do feel there is a need for it, we will present our idea to the Aldermen,” Miss Brett said.

The Burnie Youth Council are looking at a popular round pillar design style noticeboard.

“There is a real opportunity to have some local artists decorate the noticeboard to make it appealing to young people.”

The Burnie Youth Council is made up of two representatives from each primary, high and secondary schools in the Burnie region.
