Community Recovery Committee elects chair

The Alpine Community Recovery Committee is making good progress, recently electing a Chair and Deputy Chair and exploring local needs in recovery and resilience-building.

04 August 2020

The Committee is made up of representatives from across the Alpine Shire and Alpine Resorts, to help give a voice to the broad views and recovery goals of local communities.

Fiona Nicholls was elected CRC Chair and Steve Belli was elected Deputy Chair at the Committee’s fourth meeting on Wednesday, 29 July.

Chair Fiona Nicholls said she is excited to support her fellow committee members in providing essential representation and connection between the community and all levels of government.

“The Community Recovery Committee’s role extends beyond the short-term post-emergency recovery process,” she said.

“We’re here to work with our communities to identify recovery opportunities, and plan and assist community readiness and resilience in the face of future emergencies.”

Ms Nicholls said the CRC’s purpose is to develop a plan for building community recovery that can feed into the Shire, State and Federal Government plans.

“The development of this plan will include a detailed consultation phase where community members will be encouraged to identify areas of concern and provide ideas for recovery,” she said.

“We’re here to provide a community voice to all levels of government and ensure our community members are represented.

“Your local community representative is your best contact to share your views on recovery and ensure your voice is heard.”
