A video, which cost more than $19,000 of ratepayers’ money to produce, was unveiled at a special screening earlier this week.
The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale’s advocacy video titled Our Plan For Our Growing Community was produced by video production company Boogie Monster in an attempt to highlight the shire’s six key projects moving forward.
The video was launched at Quarry Farm on April 16 and was shared to the shire’s Facebook page the following day.
The projects showcased in the video include the extension of Tonkin Highway, the new Byford train station, the community sporting facility at Keirnan Park, the shire’s hyper growth network implementation project, upgrades to walking trails and building a nature splash park at Byford’s Bill Hicks Reserve.
President Michelle Rich said the video formed part of the shire’s advocacy strategy to secure external funding to deliver these critical infrastructure projects.
“The shire remains the fastest growing local governments in Western Australia,” she said.
“Our rapid growth has brought many positive changes to our region and has helped promote us as a vibrant and attractive place for people to live, work and play.
“It also brings the challenge of delivering important services and facilities to support the needs of our diverse communities.”
The video also highlighted the growth of the Serpentine Jarrahdale shire, which is growing at a rate of 7.7 per cent per year, which by 2050 it is expected to become a city with a population of about 150,000 people.
The video can be seen on the shire’s digital channels.
