I’M reimag­in­ing what our Val­ley could be and I see five key trends af­fect­ing what we are aim­ing for: THE rise of the in­di­vid­ual ask­ing ques­tions and how they are re­sponded to. RE­SOURCE stress re­lated to the com­bined pres­sures of growth in the num­ber of peo­ple, eco­nomic ex­pan­sion and cli­mate change im­pacts on daily life. EM­BRAC­ING the idea where waste ma­te­ri­als are kept in cir­cu­la­tion, low cost util­ity ser­vices, and ex­plor­ing or­gan­ics pro­cess­ing. CLI­MATE change and build­ing ca­pac­ity and re­silience to re­spond to chal- lenges such as bush fire, floods, waste man­age­ment, health and well­be­ing. FIND­ING new ways of de­liv­er­ing ser­vices while re­spond­ing to the bud­get, an­nual plan and bal­anc­ing the need to re­duce debt against the need to bor­row.
