Helping shape the future of Coffs
Harbour is the aim of MyCoffs - a campaign to capture the goals and aspirations
of the whole community to create a vision for how we want to be living in the
It was launched by the MyCoffs
Community Champions, a group of volunteers from widely different
backgrounds and interests who are united by a passion for the place they live
and the people who live here.
Over the next eight months, the
MyCoffs community conversation will endeavour to reach and inspire anyone and
everyone to think about what we love about the place that we call home – and to
motivate them to make their mark on that future.
Ultimately, the vision created by
the MyCoffs conversation will inform a Plan called the Community Strategic Plan
(CSP). The current Plan - Coffs Harbour 2030 - is now eight years old and it’s
time for us as a community to look again at what we think is important.
Council’s role is simply to
facilitate the discussion by providing the means for people to meet, discuss
and share their thoughts face-to-face, online and through the arts. MyCoffs
2030 will be community-owned and driven.
The first step has been to
identify a group of leaders within the community who can use their passion to
help inspire their fellow citizens and bring them along on this journey.
Community Champions are:
- Clark Webb – Proud Gumbaynggirr man
- Todd McCarthy – Hospitality entrepreneur
- Zarifa Nadir Hussein – Honoured new Coffs resident
- Sandy Van Veluwen – Nature lover
- Barney and Kate Miller – Wellness advocates
- Geoff Donnan – Adult education leader
- Karen Masson – Adventure racer
- Alison Paul – Businesswoman and happy mum
