Community Association

The Truro and District Community Association was formed to amalgamate a number of  committees in the town and give the residents a voice with Mid Murray Council. It has a Board membership of 12 including an elected member of Council. The Association meets on a monthly basis, normally on the third Thursday of the month at 700pm in the Oval building or Hall supper room. 

For information about the Association you can email  info@truro.sa.au.

 

Opportunities exist for any group associated with Truro to have a page on the Truro website. Just contact Chris on the 'Contact Us' page. 

TRURO COMMUNITY PLAN

 

The Truro and District Community Association is preparing a Community Plan to help the town prepare for coming changes over the next 10 years.

Information and idea gathering workshops took place in May 2022, led by Maz McGann of Play Your Part consultants and Leonie Boothby of Leonie Boothby and Associates. The report from those sessions is available from the link below. The sessions were funded by RDAMR through the Primary Industries and Regions SA Experts in Residence program.

Planning report June 2022

Consultant Jane Ferrari has also been engaged through the same funding stream. Her report will appear here when it has been received.

The proposed highway bypass will have an important effect on the volume and intensity of main street traffic.

  • Businesses that cater to visitors to town will be challenged.
  • Other businesses may not be affected or may even do better with fewer trucks passing by.
  • Construction of the bypass is scheduled to start late 2022 or early 2023, and construction will last four years.
  • South Australia has committed to assistance for the town as a result of road infrastructure changes.

As well as preparing for the changes to the highway, the Community Association intends to reflect the community's preferences and desires in an organised, practical and flexible manner.

  • Growth and development are possible.
  • A vibrant community can support businesses, the arts and culture and provide health, social and environmental benefits.

The Association is has worked and will continue to work with Mid Murray Council, Regional Development Murraylands/Riverland, Regional Development Barossa, Rural Business Support, South Australia Department of Infrastructure and Transport,  MP Ashton Hurn and MP Tony Pasin to produce a plan that will state the wishes and aspirations of the community and provide a framework for efforts to sustain and enhance community life.
