Community Engagement

Your Council Meet & Greet Forums

Each quarter the Council invite community to have a say at their "Your Council Meet & Greet" forums. Council has actively engaged with communities in; Wellstead, Green Range, Many Peaks, Kalgan, Lower King, Bornholm, Little Grove, City Centre and Emu Point.

The next Meet & Greet forum scheduled in Yakamia Ward, at the Albany Bowling Club (Barrett St Orana) on Wednesday 21 April 2021 has been postponed until further notice. Sincerest apologies to those who had already registered, we hope to reschedule the event in the not too distant future.

In the meantime if you have any questions about Council Meet and Greet Forums, or community engagement more generally, please contact the Community Engagement Team on 6820 3020.

Communications & Engagement Advisory Group

The City of Albany recently endorsed the new Communications and Engagement Strategy. As part of the new approach to improving the way the City communicates and engages with communities, the multidisciplinary group will guide the City's action plan and reporting. The group meets each quarter to provide high level advice and recommendations. The group membership includes community representatives, City of Albany staff, and Elected Members.

2019 Albany Community MARKYT® Survey Results

The City of Albany conducts a MARKYT® Survey every 2 years to get feedback on how the community feel the City is performing against commitments made in their Integrated Planning and Reporting (IPR) Framework. For the first time ever in the Local Government sector this Survey was conducted in partnership with the other 10 Great Southern Local Governments.

Survey results indicate that while the City continues to perform above the Local Government average in most service areas the community is asking us to focus on leadership aspects including engagement, transparency and articulating a clear vision and infrastructure upgrades to pathways, roads and trails. The City has started to address the leadership issues through their revised Communications and Engagement Strategy and there will be a continued focus on how we can best connect with the community.

Here is a link to the survey results:
