What is a community vision?
A community vision is a look into the future. As we gathered the long-term aspirations of the community, an image has emerged:
In 2035 Moonee Valley will be a city of clean, green and beautiful, vibrant, diverse and sustainable communities that people experience as friendly and safe to live in.
This shared vision represents the values and priorities of local residents, students, workers and businesses.
What is it for?
The shared community vision will provide directions we can all work towards for a healthy, sustainable, successful community.
It will be the basis on which we develop a long-term community plan. The community plan will set out directions and steps to help make sure we build the community we aspire to. Some of these steps will involve Council action, some will involve partnerships and some will be taken up by community agencies and businesses in Moonee Valley.
