***** OLDC NEWS ARCHIVE ITEM........... PUBLISHED 27.06.12 *****

The community of Clara is currently engaged in the preparation of a Community Action Plan for the area. The idea of the plan is that it identifies a number of projects that the community can develop over the period 2012 – 2015 in order to make Clara a better place to live. 

The project is overseen locally by a steering group of volunteers and is supported by Offaly Local Development Company and a number of other statutory agencies under the Offaly Building Healthy Communities Initiative. 

To date, a comprehensive household survey has taken place, identifying priority issues and in response, a number of projects are being developed by groups of local volunteers. The plan is now drafted and the views of Clara residents on its content are welcomed.

The action plan is presented under a number of headings, some actions are already complete, some are underway and more will require existing community groups or new groups of volunteers to take responsibility for specific projects in order to get them off the ground. 

This plan belongs to the whole community and is seen as a significant project for the Clara area.

If you live in the Clara area this plan affects you! Please take the time to download the draft plan here, review it and send your feedback to the address below via email or post before July 13th.
