50 PROJECTS were submitted in March 2020. The community voted for their favourites and the best are sharing the $100,000 seed funding + support
The Great Regional City Challenge has been a challenge to the wider community to become actively engaged in making Launceston one of the great regional cities of the world.
Here’s how it worked in 2020:
Decide on YOUR community project
Our vision for the city was to be more creative, innovative, liveable, diverse and better connected.
If you needed help to shape your project, you were able to use this platform to ask a question, gather ideas and collate feedback.
- You, your friends, family, colleagues or neighbours were asked if they had a project to make Launceston better?
- Maybe some people already had a project that met our criteria
Entrants were asked to complete the Great Regional City Challenge application. APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED
Completed application were sent to email@example.com.
All applications were submitted by midnight (12pm) on Sunday 15 March, 2020.
The community voted for the GREAT projects. VOTING OPENED 1 APRIL, 2020
All projects were uploaded to this platform where everyone could vote for their favourites.
- Everyone in the greater Launceston region / north-east Tasmania was eligible to vote. If you
- were a resident outside the NE Tasmania region your vote was not counted. Sorry.
- Voting ended on the 31st of May, 2020.
Selected projects got up to $10,000 plus support
The best projects have been selected from the community votes (each person in the region can only vote once).
- Results are being announced in the media and by direct contact with each project.
Selected projects help make Launceston region GREAT!
Projects - and the funding and support - will commence from July 1, 2020.
- The support of trained Community Builders will be provided to maximise chances of having a successful project.
- The Great Regional City Challenge will be assessed at the end of June 2021.
- The program will be repeated once it is seen as a success.
