A memorial for pilots who died while fighting bushfires in the district and a community garden project at Manyana are two local projects up for vote in the NSW Government's My Community Project program.
South Coast MP Shelley Hancock said voting in the South Coast opened on Monday giving local residents the green light to cast an online vote for between three and five of 11 nominated projects.
"This is an innovative and exciting program that is putting decision making back in the hands of community members to weigh in on their top picks for projects in the region," Mrs Hancock said.
"It's very easy to vote, all you need is your Medicare card and a free MyServiceNSW account."
Burrill Lake's Sandy Lanham suggested the memorial idea.
The Memorial Obelisk, an eight tonne granite obelisk, will be placed on the grounds of the Ulladulla Civic Centre, Ms Lanham said.
It will be for any frontline personnel who gave their lives in protecting the community. Two plaques will also be placed for pilots who have died while defending the district from bushfire.
Helicopter pilot Allan Tull died when his helicopter crashed west of Ulladulla while working on the Mount Kingiman blaze in August, 2018.
David Black died in October 2013, when his waterbombing plane crashed west of Ulladulla.
The Manyana Community Garden will offer community connection, provide a social space for residents to share knowledge and improved aesthetics of Yalunga Reserve
It's projected to be built in stages with infrastructure such as water tanks, a shed and composting bays planned, followed by annual beds construction and fruit tree guilds.
Residents in the South Coast electorate can view eligible projects and vote online at mycommunityproject.service.nsw.gov.au or by visiting their Service NSW centre.
Voting concludes on August 15 with successful projects to be announced from September.
A total of $24.4 million is available for eligible projects, with between $20,000 and $200,000 available for each project.
