Community vision - Looking to 2040


THE first Community Vision for Mansfield has been released for feedback.

After months of collaborat­ion with the wider community, council said it is delighted to share the draft Community Vision 2040.

Now is the time to give them your feedback on the vision by connecting through Engage Mansfield comments are welcome until September 7.

Mansfield Shire mayor Mark Holcombe said the process demonstrat­ed that the community had a clear vision for the future that it was passionate about.

“Working with the community to develop a vision has been an exciting process,” said Cr Holcombe.

“Many people have participat­ed in helping us shape it so far.

“We are grateful to those who have taken the time to tell us their vision for Mansfield Shire’s future.

“The vision will guide council’s future planning and activity.

“Most importantl­y, it will also provide shared goals for everyone across Mansfield Shire to collective­ly work towards.”

There are five domains covered in the Community Vision, each providing a clear vision for Mansfield

Shire in 2040, including:

Community and People;

Health and Wellbeing;

Environmen­t and Place; Infrastruc­ture and Services;

Prosperity and Economy.

The council is nearing the final stages of the process of developing our community vision.

Social impact strategist­s, Spur, have been engaged by council to facilitate the project.

They will consider feedback given at this stage as they finalise the Community Vision, which will be considered by council at its meeting in October.
