Get involved with your Council

What do you like about this city? What would you like to see change? What would make your street better, the spaces around you more welcoming or more interesting?

As a community member, there are several different ways you can get involved with the City of Adelaide. Each  opportunity presents an avenue to work together to achieve the biggest impact in the places we live and the spaces we use – providing you a chance to be an active participant in driving the future of the city.

Here are three ways you can get involved with the City of Adelaide.

Participate through community engagement

The City of Adelaide conducts over 80 community engagements a year, such as gathering ideas around shaping a space and inviting feedback regarding policy development.

If you haven’t already, start participating today.

Having your say about a council’s project, plan or policy is important as it can make a difference in the planning and decision-making process. Your contribution helps provide different perspectives, improve projects and services, and helps establish open dialogue between yourself and council.

Let’s build and shape this city together. Learn more about community engagement and our current projects at yoursay.cityofadelaide.com.au
