Shelford Community Plan
Community planning is a program where community members come together to develop and implement Community Plans to improve where they live.
Local residents volunteer as community coordinators to coordinate the development and implementation of a Community Plan. To develop this plan, community coordinators seek other residents' ideas and opinions via surveys, interviews and public meetings.
Residents ideas are voted on to identify the top priority projects for the community for the upcoming three year period.
The coordinators assist local residents, groups and others who are passionate about a particular project in the Community Plan to action it.

The famous Shelford Duck Race - a community fundraiser with the chance to win $1,000 - is held on the last Sunday in February at the Shelford Recreation Reserve. Further details are available here .
