My Community Project – Voting is now open

Nambucca Shire Council (NSC) Mayor, Councillor Rhonda Hoban OAM is reminding residents
voting opened on 15 July 2019 for the My Community Project program.

Nambucca Shire Council agreed to be the Project Sponsor for 4 projects. They are:

1. MCP19-01671 – “Ball Play at Valla Beach” – Anderson Park, Valla Beach;
2. MCP19-03782 – “Dawkins Park Outdoor Sustainability Centre” – Macksville;
3. MCP19-03800 – “Gordon Park Accessible Playground” – Nambucca Heads; and
4. MCP19-04538 – “Museum Annex – Reading Room for historical newspapers” – Mary Boulton Pioneer Cottage & Museum, Macksville. 

“All 4 projects have made it through the assessment round and are now open to the public vote.

Voting closes on 15 August 2019 and can be accessed through the Service NSW website. You will need a MyServiceNSW account and your Medicare Card to vote for your preferred or favourite project. You can also visit the local Service NSW Centre and cast  our vote there”, she said.

“There is a total $260,000 of funding available for the whole electorate of Oxley, so your vote really does count to ensure at least one of the community projects is successful.” “Voters will be able to select three to five projects as part of their vote or order of  reference. Projects in each electorate will be ranked in order of total points received. People can only vote once.”

“The project with the most points will be funded first, the project with the second most points will be funded second and so on until no more projects can be fully funded with the $260,000 funding which has been made available to the electorate of Oxley.” “If any of the above 5 projects are successful, Council is responsible for the project delivery with the community group/member that initially submitted the project idea to the My Community Project program.”

“Should you want more information regarding My Community Project please visit www.mycommunity or visit you nearest Service NSW centre or call 13 77 88” she said. “There is also a link on Council’s website to the Fact Sheet for Voters which outlines all the requirements.”

“If the Nambucca Valley community is active in the voting and in supporting local projects we will be able to secure some needed funding”, said Cr Hoban.
