From the CEO’s desk
We are at the end of another busy year in Ballarat. In this year the City of
Ballarat has delivered improvements to Prince of Wales Park, the regional
Football (Soccer) facility, a weed free Lake Wendouree, changes to Library
services, the 130 different services that residents rely on and works to roads,
footpaths and community infrastructure including town halls and a range of
other projects. All of this work is an important part of maintaining the city
that we all love and the way of life that is enjoyed by our residents.
In late December we will reach the significant population milestone of
100,000 residents. This figure is the tipping point at which communities
reach critical mass and become self sustaining. It also indicates the
strong growth we are receiving as this milestone was not due for at least
another six months.
Ballarat is Australia’s fastest growing inland city and over the course of
this year, we have also worked to put plans in place to manage that strong
population growth and protect all that makes this city special.
Ballarat’s newest suburb called Lucas was delivered in the west of Ballarat
and plans progressed on the Link Road that will connect the Ballarat West
Growth Zone with Ballarat and ultimately Melbourne and Geelong. We’ve
made good progress on the Dowling Forest precinct to attract Victoria’s
thoroughbred training industry to invest in Ballarat and we’re worked with
the University on their plans to expand Australia’s biggest regional tech
park here at Mt Helen.
While 2011 has been a busy year, we’re all looking forward to the plans
and projects of 2012 with great enthusiasm.
I would like to wish all of you a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
Chief Executive Officer
City of Ballarat
