Council adopt Community Vision Statement

IN a first, Greater Shepparton’s adopted a Community Vision Statement at the last Ordinary Council Meeting.

The Community Vision describes community aspirations for the future of the municipality and is the overarching strategy that informs the Council Plan and related strategies going forward.

The adopted Community Vision Statement reads:
A diverse, vibrant and connected community valuing accessible opportunities for everyone.

We adapt and respond in a way that is innovative, sustainable and accountable.
We acknowledge where we have been and look forward to where we are going.
Together we are Greater!

The Community Panel, consisting of 29 people representative of the community, considered each of the 1,600 ideas submitted by locals to develop the final statement.

The process involved wide community engagement including roadshows, community events and discussion groups and the community had the opportunity to provide feedback directly or via the Shaping Greater Shepp website.

Development of the Council Plan has now commenced and is expected to be completed by October 2021.
