An Opportunity of a Generation for the Generations of the Future

What do you think Goodwood Oval & Millswood Park should look and feel like in the future. We are keen to know your thoughts as we plan for the future use of these two facilities.

I am blogging again on this topic as I am passionate in making sure you know you have and take the opportunity to shape the future of the premier sporting facility of the west side of the City of Unley.

Council is keen to have a blueprint for future improvements so that we can take advantage and any future grant funding opportunities that may come our way from the Federal or State Governments. If we fail to have a blueprint then we will fail to attract funding if ever it becomes available. In other words we need to be project ready if ever an opportunity presents itself.

As I noted in previous posts on this blog site Council has, through its Community Assets Review, spoken to the sporting clubs using these facilities. We have determined each have a wish list that they see are important initiatives for the future of their respective clubs.

You will have a chance to respond to these wish lists. But more importantly we need to know what you think can be improved.

The public consultation currently under way has seen all residents within a 1.5 km radius of the grounds receive a letter requesting their thoughts. You can snail mail or email this back to council. A survey is available on our Have Your Say webpage at http://yoursay.unley.sa.gov.au/article/goodwood-oval-and-millswood-sporting-complex-improvement-plan to facilitate this.

And the Goodwood Oval Reference Group website provides opportunity to have a say. They can be found at http://www.goodwoodoval.org/ and the have your say option can be found at the top right hand corner of the screen.

The upcoming public forums at Goodwood Oval and Millswood Park will be on us soon, indeed as soon as next week.

Goodwood Oval will be held from 9.30 am – 12.30 pm
Millswood Park (shown on the map as SASMEE Park) will be held from 1.00 pm to 4.00 pm

If there are things that you think would help make these facilities better then please contribute. A facility for all to enjoy not just now for the current generations, but for those who will follow us.
