Blairgowrie Street Captains

Communicate – Educate – Escalate

 

Streets and sections of streets are encouraged to take charge of their immediate surroundings, remaining autonomous whilst functioning as part of the whole.

The BCA does not want to control or micro-manage the streets in order for our suburb to be successful. We would rather put the power in the hands of our residents, ensuring that they take charge of their own streets. Our fantastic Street Captains help us to achieve this.

 

Street Captains help the BCA by ensuring that information reaches everyone on the street, forming and managing the street's WhatsApp group and creating sub-committees within the street to ensure easy management.

 

 

Street WhatsApp groups are powerful tools to help fight crime and disseminate important information from the BCA.

To find out who your Street Captain is, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Street Captains are also in charge of updating our BCA database. Each Street Captain signs a non-disclosure agreement to protect private information of our residents.

 Each Street Captain will be supplied with their portion of the database and will update this as and when residents move into/out of the street. This ensures that our database is current and up-to-date.

 

Please support your Street Captain by being the eyes and ears of the street. Look out for issues and take note and report any security risks, problem homes and city service issues. Report all City Service issues, find out how to here.

 

Encourage each other to embrace the Spirit of Community in the Street.  Your own street is more important than the suburb as a whole.
