Community members are being given a chance to put forward their ideas for Bairnsdale’s future at an upcoming community workshop.

The Bairnsdale 2050 initiative is inviting locals to join a co-design workshop on Saturday, April 20.

The aim of the workshop is to gather public input that will help shape strategies for Bairnsdale's growth and development over the next 25 years.

The workshop, which will run from 10.00 am to 3.30 pm at Bairnsdale RSL, will give people an opportunity to work together with the project team to come up with solutions for a thriving Bairnsdale in 2050.

"We want to hear from locals about what they like about Bairnsdale, the challenges for the future, the things that need to be improved, and how we can tackle them," Mayor Cr Tom Crook said. "Tapping into local knowledge, wants and perspectives is vital."
