CBCity unveils community engagement Kombi

​In case you don’t already know, CBCity has become even cooler with the launch of its very own community engagement Kombi.

City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour said the CBKombi, which was funded by the Stronger Communities Fund Major Grants Program, is another way for Council to connect with its community.

"We are always looking for new ways to be more mobile and accessible when engaging with our residents, and this bright and colourful Kombi will definitely go a long way to achieving that," Mayor Asfour said.

"In addition to visiting suburbs throughout our City, the CBKombi will feature at our major events to help start conversations with the community and find out more on what they want for Canterbury-Bankstown.

"In fact, we recently took the Kombi to our Carols in the Park event on Sunday 2 December."

Mayor Asfour said the CBKombi will complement the fantastic strategies Council has been implementing in the community engagement space.

"So far this year, we’ve had about 5,000 face-to-face conversations, more than 30 pop-up events, and over 17 workshops," Mayor Asfour said.

"In addition to this, we’ve also had over 3,700 survey responses on more than 40 projects, and our Have Your Say page has been viewed around 24,300 times, which is extraordinary.

"When we say we are serious about involving our community in the decision-making process, we mean it, which is why we’re finding fun and innovative ways to reach them."

Mayor Asfour urged residents to come and have a chat with Council’s friendly staff if they see the Kombi.

If you would like the CBKombi to visit your area you can drop a pin on the interactive map on Council’s Have Your Say Page at cb.city/cbkombi

It will also show you other areas the CBKombi will be scheduled to visit.
