Key projects secure prosperous future for Northern Rivers' communities

Thursday, 7 February 2019

The Northern Rivers Joint Organisation (NRJO) will meet on Friday 8 February, with the Mayors of the six member Councils convening for a workshop to look to identify a handful of key projects from the previously identified strategic regional priorities.

Cr Danielle Mulholland, Chair of the Northern Rivers Joint Organisation (NRJO), will then officially launch the NRJO Strategic Regional Priorities 2019 – 2022 document at Tweed Shire Council Chambers in Murwillumbah. The launch event will be attended by senior council representatives and a range of other important stakeholders, eager to hear Cr Mulholland announce which priorities have been identified by the organisation in collaboration with government, business and industry partners.

“The NRJO is uniquely placed to deliver regional initiatives across traditional council boundaries thereby ensuring a stronger region with access to funding and opportunities not available to individual councils.”

With the 2019 election period imminent, Cr Mulholland is confident that the timing of this announcement will ensure that the region’s needs are advanced through advocacy and cooperative action.

“The Mayors hold a strong sense of shared values aligned with the community’s love of our surroundings, our way of life and our sense of community. This unified commitment provides a solid foundation for advocacy on issues that are crucial to the sustainability and resilience of the community,” Cr Mulholland said.

Once announced, the key projects will be pitched to State and Federal Governments for financial support and legislative and/or policy changes necessary to facilitate growth.

“With the backing of the resources that are required across the region, our communities will be ideally placed to prosper well into the future.”
