Liverpool mayor Wendy Waller would like residents to think about what they would like the city to look like in the next 10 years.

"What they would like to see change and they would like to stay the same," said Ms Waller, while calling on residents to have their say as part of council's Community Strategic Plan.

"Council is reviewing its Community Strategic Plan to identify the community's main priorities and aspirations for the future and incorporating this information to plan programs, capital works and essential services to achieve these goals.

"The plan represents the community's vision and will be developed through a series of conversations with our community over the next few months.

"While council takes responsibility for leading the process for developing the plan, and has a major role in its delivery, the plan belongs to the whole community and everyone has a role to play in ensuring that we move forward toward our vision.

"Council has a strong commitment to community engagement and a desire for the community to be informed, consulted and involved in Council's direction and decision-making processes, and this is a great way for the community to get involved."

Mayor Waller said council has endeavoured to ensure everybody who wants to have their say will be able to through a series of accessible channels including a series of online focus groups, workshops and telephone surveys.

Residents can complete the Share Your Views survey on council's website or by post, until 5pm Friday, November 12. Participants who complete the online survey will also go into the draw to win one of 10 $100 gift cards.

Members of the community will also be given the opportunity to attend workshops, review draft documents and resources and provide their feedback over the coming months.

"I encourage residents to keep an eye out as there will be a multitude of ways to participate in building the future of our city," Ms Waller said.
