The whole of the Kiama Municipality is now covered by community precinct
committees, with the endorsement of the Kiama North Precinct, to cover Gainsborough and Kiama Downs, at the December Council Meeting.
It gives formal status to a group that has been meeting monthly since June to provide a forum for people to discuss issues affecting their area.
Chair Mark Croxford is keen to get as many people as possible to be involved with the initiative.
“I’ve been involved with community organisations all my life, and it seemed natural to get involved now Kiama is our home,” he says.
“We want to provide a vehicle so people can raise issues and we can pass their concerns onto Council.”
He is keen to use technology to enable communication outside the monthly meetings, on the 2nd Wednesday, using a facebook group and the Nextdoor app.
