Residents launch survey to determine views

Plans: The heavily populated Ballydribeen area

A major five-year community development plan for a heavily populated area of Killarney is to be formulated by the progressive residents’ association and funded by the South Kerry Development Partnership and Kerry County Council.
The Ballydribeen area has 350 homes and it continues to experience more growth through new housing developments.
Residents point out, however, that apart from a community house, it lacks infrastructure and services to cater for the needs of young and old.

Local residents are now invited to actively contribute to the future planning of the area through a series of community meetings and by filling in a community survey. This will identify the key issues and priorities of the diverse and energetic community.
The Residents’ Association has encouraged all householders to get involved so that Ballydribeen can become an even better and more integrated place in which to live and raise a family.
The first community meeting will be held on Wednesday next, September 28 in the Killarney Celtic FC clubhouse at 7.30pm.
In the meantime, residents will be calling door-to-door to seek survey responses.
The project is funded by South Kerry Development Partnership and Kerry County Council and it is facilitated by community consultants Paul O’Raw and Associates.
