21 November 2016 Future of Coffs Shaping Up
Big Picture Event 2 (4 of 36).jpg 
Community members turned out to two My Coffs Big Picture events over the last week to help shape the future of Coffs Harbour.
The sessions were designed to build on ideas gathered throughout phase one of MyCoffs which encouraged the community to share their ideas for the future of the area.
Coffs Harbour local Stephanie Hunt, who attended the Big Picture event last Sunday, relished the chance to voice her suggestions.
 'I loved the opportunity to have input - in bigger cities where I've lived previously, you don't have that option. I like the idea that I can have a say in where our community goes.
I thought the priorities that came out were spot on and fully encourage everyone in the Coffs Harbour area to jump online and get involved in the rest of the MyCoffs process,” She said.
Clare Bath was announced the winner of the phase one MyCoffs feedback competition and chose the Coffs Harbour Soup Kitchen as a worthy recipient of the $500 prize donation.
The feedback received during these sessions will be explored in more detail over the coming months to identify, as a community, those things that we need to focus on the make the area an even better place to live and work.
