Time is running out for residents to have their say on the future direction of Canterbury-Bankstown, with the draft cbcity 2028 (Community Strategic Plan) coming off public exhibition on Friday 30 March.
Mayor Khal Asfour said more than 10,000 people have already taken part in 2017.
"They have told us what they like about Canterbury-Bankstown and what changes they would like to see over the next 10 years," Mayor Asfour said.
"These ideas have been captured in cbcity 2028 but we’d now like residents to let us know if there’s anything else they’d like added."
Long-time Bankstown resident, Yasmine Farhart, is among the thousands who have already provided their thoughts.
"I like that we’ve been included in designing our own future because, at the end of the day, we’re the ones who are going to be living here," she said.
Ms Farhart particularly liked one of the focus areas in cbcity 2028, Moving and Integrated.
"I really liked how it addressed my concerns around our roads being too congested and the fact Council has a vision to improve this," she said.
"If all levels of government can work together to provide less bumpy roads, increased affordable public transport options and corridors that improve travel times, then I’m happy."
Residents can have their say on cbcity 2028 at cb.city/haveyoursay until 5pm 30 March 2018. They also have a chance to win an iPad for taking part.
"Our opinions matter and will guide Council in the choices it makes on behalf of the community. It’s important Council has a diversity of opinions to understand what we as residents, workers and even visitors, really want," Ms Farhart said.
In the lead-up to the closure date, Council will be running further community consultation sessions at:
