Warrnambool has more than $5 million worth of choices to make this month.
The city has been inundated with 44 community projects all vying for top spot in the state government’s Pick My Project initiative.
Pick My Project is a grants initiative offering a share of $30 million in funding to metro and regional areas.
Voters are being asked to pick their three favourite project ideas within their local community and ultimately transform those plans into reality.
Entries in the popularity contest have closed, with voting open until September 17.
Warrnambool voters can choose three projects within 50km of the CBD.
The projects have been submitted by community groups, schools, and councils.
Three of the submissions originate from sports clubs, five from schools, four are arts projects, six are requested upgrades to town halls, three are public events, one is an emergency services project and two are environmentally focused.
The projects range in proposed cost from $22,875 to $200,000.
Facebook users have been inundated by friends, relatives, sports clubs and associations all pushing their project to the forefront.
Regional Development Minister Jaala Pulford said the government had “been blown away by the incredible ideas and initiatives put forward by regional Victorians”.
“Regional Victorians, it’s time to pick your project,” she said.
“Your voice and your vote counts and will be the difference between getting a magnificent project off the ground.”
