myBallarat CD myBallarat community magazine is now available on CD. The City of Ballarat and local community radio station, VOICE FM, have partnered together on this great project. The CD of the Winter 2015 issue is now available at the Customer Service Centre, Armstrong Street South; and the Ballarat Library, Doveton Street North. The idea of recording the magazine on CD was a request from a resident who is visually impaired and wanted to keep up-to-date with community news and events. The City of Ballarat will continue to send a copy of all issues of the myBallarat magazine to every home and business in the municipality. The CD is an extra option for residents who may have difficulties reading the magazine. Those residents, or those people who care for someone in this category, are encouraged to pick up a copy of the myBallarat CD. Have your say on Bowls Strategy
