The Moreland 2025 Community Vision (previously referred to as Community Plan) is a description of the city in which our community hopes to live, work and play in the near future. It contains the combined visions from over 1,500 Moreland citizens, plus representatives from 30 partner organisations, including Council.
The Community Vision is the first step towards aligning the activities, decisions, plans and strategies of those who shape the city - the many community groups and organisations, individuals, service providers, Council and other levels of government.
Moreland 2025 Community Vision proposes working in partnership. Leadership will be shared by the partner organisations that will make plans and take action. There will be opportunities for everyone to work together, according to their interests, to achieve a better Moreland. Council is also responsible for ensuring that our plans and decisions are focused on realising the visions in Moreland 2025.
Consultation and engagement to develop Moreland 2025 Community Vision took place in 2013 and into 2014. Council endorsed a draft late in 2014 after public consultation.
At the August 2015 Council Meeting, Council adopted the Moreland 2025 Community Vision. From this point, opportunities for participation and implementation will be offered by partner organisations and Council.
