Community Notice Boards

This one isn’t really mine, I was speaking with a very nice lady in O’Briens Bridge and we were bemoaning the difficulties in communication both into and out of the council.

The idea we settled on is pretty simple – a designated area, either outdoor or in a local shop / shared space where council advice and notices would be published.

We decided it probably wouldn’t even be necessary for the council to actually maintain the notice boards, some members of the community would be quite happy to help out and once a notice went up, eg advising that some roadworks were due to start on a particular date, the local grapevine would make sure that everyone heard about it pretty quickly.

Of course this doesn’t resolve the difficulty of communicating back to the council but it would help somewhat with people feeling disengaged.
