MORE than 150 well known business and community leaders helped see in the future direction of improving the region last week, when the Committee for Greater Shepparton was officially launched and their draft Strategic Directions 2014 to 2016 document was released.
The committee, which represents a diverse range of community and business interests, has an overall aim to drive initiatives, policies, projects and activities to improve the region.
The draft document outlines the committee’s four strategic focus areas, which include taking actions to make the region the food capital of Australia, building a ‘creative community’ by improving the region’s arts and culture, making improvements to transport and digital connections with other areas of the country and working toward a happy, healthy, welcoming and inclusive community.
Committee for Greater Shepparton CEO, Matt Nelson said, “The launch exceeded expectations. It was a significant step in the evolution of the Committee for Greater Shepparton.
“We’ve now got our Strategic Directions document, which outlines some of the forward directions and actions of the committee and we are seeking feedback from our members as well as the wider community on the document, which is available on the website for review.”
