The City of Greater Geraldton wants to hear what people have to say about youth issues and how to reduce crime in two separate community surveys.

In the safety survey, feedback and ideas will be used to update the council’s Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan.

Mayor Jerry Clune said the council worked with WA Police and other agencies to tackle crime, but also wanted to hear from residents to “ensure localised solutions to these issues are identified and delivered”.

The youth survey is open to people aged 12-25. The council is keen to hear about issues affecting young people and their ideas on how the community can be improved for youth living, working and studying here.

“The feedback we get will help the City develop a youth strategy that will inform the delivery of programs that will improve the lives of young people and the people who care for them,” Mr Clune said.

Four $100 Bunnings vouchers and four $100 Corner Surf Shop and Willocks Surf vouchers are up for grabs for those who take the crime and youth surveys respectively.

The community safety survey is available online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/CGGsafety2023, while the youth survey can be completed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CGGYS2023.

Paper copies of both surveys are available at the Civic Centre on Cathedral Avenue, while hard copies of the community safety survey can also be found at the QEII Centre on Durlacher Street.

The community safety survey closes at 9am on Monday, November 20, while the deadline for the youth survey is 9am on Monday, December 4.
