What is a community engagement forum?

Community engagement forums provide an opportunity for residents, ratepayers, city workers and students of the City of Hobart to be informed about important issues, to raise issues and give their viewpoint and feedback. The public meeting format will allow the Council and community to work collaboratively and views expressed at the community forums may inform Council's decision making process.

How will attending a community engagement forum benefit me?

By attending, representatives from the Council will be able to tell you about Council decisions, major projects, services and operation.  You will also have the opportunity to raise issues and have a say on how services might be improved.

How do community engagement forums work?

The forums will commence with a short presentation from the Council on matters the Council wishes you to be informed about and each forum will have a question time slot where community members can raise issues.

How can I be involved?

Just come along to a forum - with neighbours, friends and family if you want.

You don't have to rsvp or let us know in advance if you want to raise a query or an issue at the forum, as each forum has a question time slot.
