Citizens’ Panel Update

CitizensPanelWe would like to provide you with an update regarding the issue of the proposed floodlights at OH Reid Reserve.

With the support of our three West Ward Councillors (Lynne Saville, Craig Campbell and Tony Mustaca) Mayor, GM and Council, a Citizens Panel has been formed to enable input from local residents and sporting associations regarding short and longer term use of the reserve. The Citizens Panel will provide input into an OH Reid Masterplan which will include the issue of potential floodlighting.

The Council recently called for ‘expressions of interest’ for nominees to the Panel. I am pleased to inform you that several local West Chatswood residents have been selected to join the panel – myself and Diana Pryde, included.

The Panel will have four meetings between Aug and Oct. with a OH Reid Masterplan going to Council late this year or early next year, for review and hopefully endorsement. Our first meeting occurred on Aug. 19 and was facilitated by professional external facilitators and attended by 10 panel members including – West Chatswood residents, representatives from various sporting groups and a representative from Chatswood High School.

Rest assured we will be consulting further with you as the development of the plan progresses to keep you informed and seek your feedback on various issues and contents of the plan. In the interim, if you have any questions please get back to either of us.
