A group from Tydavnet recently took part in a Smart Village Training Program organised by Monaghan Integrated Development (MID) and delivered by eTownz. The project involved the group completing an interactive register of local assets, stakeholders, goals, projects and metrics. In short, when completed the team will have completed a plan for the future of Tydavnet which will form part of funding applications, and you have an important part to play in this. The group have designed a survey to be completed by the people in the community, and along with data from the Census of Population, the responses will help identify the trends and needs emerging in the area. This information would then be used to highlight the issues and projects of what our community needs, and their priority, and be “spade ready” to apply for any funding when any suitable funding streams come along. This Community Plan is something that everyone in the community can give their opinion on, e.g. you may see the need for creche facilities, youth clubs, upskilling or education courses, a new playground etc in the area, whatever it is, your opinion is needed! This survey will be online, and paper copies will also be available, so that the maximum number of people can respond. The survey will go live very soon on Tydavnet Facebook page and website; we ask that you take a few minutes to answer the questions, give your opinion on what you think our community needs, and hopefully in the future your idea can become a reality for our area. Love your community. Click on this link to start the short survey…..https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DMH3XYN
