City Shares Blueprint for Community Health and Wellbeing
The City of Kalamunda is taking significant steps to elevate community health, safety and wellbeing unveiling its five-year plan - Safe & Healthy Kalamunda 2023-2028 - for public comment.
This comprehensive plan is the result of valuable insights gathered from the community during June 2023, and it charts a course towards enhancing the overall quality of life for residents.
The plan outlines a set of key focus areas designed to encourage healthier living, foster cultural diversity and inclusion to support positive mental health, create a safe and secure environment for residents, and promote local economic collaboration for the betterment of the community.
Mayor Margaret Thomas emphasised the pivotal role of local government in nurturing a sense of place where residents can lead healthy, secure and fulfilled lives.
“There is a crucial connection between the environment, community and individual choices in influencing health and wellbeing,” Cr Thomas said.
“This includes preserving the natural beauty of the region, providing social opportunities for connecting with others, and ensuring physical and emotional safety.”
The City is now seeking feedback to ensure the Plan aligns with the community’s evolving needs.
To encourage participation, all feedback will automatically enter participants into a random draw for a chance to win prizes that can contribute to their health and wellbeing goals including a 12-month membership to Hartfield Park Recreation Centre; a family pass to Rollerrama Skating Rink and a family pass to Kalamunda Water Park.
