Raise the issues important to you at council meet-and-greet

AS PART of a collective effort to better engage the community, Toowoomba Regional Council has launched a new series of pop-up consultation events across the region.

The 'Our Future' program of events will give residents a chance to meet councillors, talk about relevant community matters and raise important issues.

Residents are invited to attend the next pop up consultation at Cecil Plains Pool, from 5-7pm, on Friday, December 9, followed by the 'Dive in Movie'.

Council's customer service portfolio leader Cr Megan O'Hara Sullivan said they are moving away from the town hall type meeting because they want to hear from a diverse cross section of the community.

"Councillors feel that if we go to where our community is already, like in parks, markets, schools, and existing community events, it will provide a better opportunity for more residents to have their say in a relaxed and open environment," she said.

Previously, councillors have hosted monthly 'Community Conversation' events at night at various halls and venues.

The new program will be held at various locations at different times to ensure residents can have access to their councillors face-to-face.

Another pop-up is planned for Sunday, January 8, from 10am-noon at Toowoomba's Picnic Point, followed by the Summer Tunes concert.

Those unable to attend can visit the What's On section of Council's website for more information, tr.qld.gov.au/events.

Alternatively, visit Council's Have Your Say site to provide feedback on various projects, visit yoursay.tr.qld.gov.au.
