What's Happened So FarTop of document.

In December 2015 the conversation began with a workshop with a small number of representatives discussed the boundary of Ballarat East and important elements of the area. From this, a draft Community Map was drawn.

In March 2016 through workshops and survey contributions from the community, Council heard what you love about Ballarat East, your aspirations for the future of the area and what you think could be improved.   This has created the Imagine Ballarat East: Discussion Paper
