Wednesday 20 July 2022

Feeling the chill? It's certainly a bit frosty out there!

But we're keeping warm with lots of great projects being delivered on behalf of our community.

In this edition of AlburyCity News, there's opportunities to have your say on important initiatives that are in the pipeline, hear from one of our newest Councillors, learn about our Reconciliation Action and Disability Inclusion Action Plans.... and lots more.

Enjoy your AlburyCity News.


Ashley Edwards is another one of our first-time Councillors, bringing a new perspective to our age and gender-diverse Council.

Cr Edwards is passionate about ensuring we are adapting to climate change, and making sure that the voices of families like her own are being heard.

Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) was recently endorsed by both Council and Reconciliation Australia. This is AlburyCity’s first RAP and it reaffirms our commitment to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people within our city and region.

Our commitment

We're working with Charles Sturt University to undertake a Heritage Review across our region. You can nominate places to be assessed as part of the review process, whether it be buildings, social places, cultural sites, trees or natural landscapes.

Our heritage

We're spoiled for choice when it comes to places to cool off in summer, and have a commitment to help our community better manage the risks while enjoying the water. That's why we're working with Royal Life Saving NSW to develop an Inland Water Safety Strategy, and we need your input.

Water safety thoughts

Get ready for the 2022 Write Around the Murray Festival program Playing with Story. This year’s passionate gathering of storytellers will inspire and surprise as they shed light on creativity and the art of storytelling with poetry, performance, memoir, fiction, visual art, song and more. 

For a sneak peak of what's to come, drop into the Albury LibraryMuseum at 11am on Wednesday 3 August as we officially launch the festival program with special guest, Lady Botanica.

Let's write

We're excited that after introducing electronic parking sensors in the Albury CBD during 2021, our parking sensor network has expanded, with additional sensors installed in Dean St, Townsend St and Wodonga Place.

The sensors help with turnover of parking in particularly busy spots, so that everyone has the opportunity to park their car near where they're going.

They also free up our Rangers so they don’t have to spend as much time on parking patrols, and can concentrate on more important issues, like keeping our community safe.

And the best thing is… parking is still FREE!

Albury has a unique multicultural heritage, with people of all walks of life calling our region home... and today we're  a regional settlement hub. We're developing a Multicultural Plan so we can better support people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds that contribute so much to our community.

We have a vision to build a community that values diversity and recognises that having a disability is not a limiting factor in an environment that offers equal opportunity. Achieving this vision will be guided by our Disability Inclusion Action Plan.
