Eurobodalla’s Community Strategic Plan was endorsed at last Tuesday’s council meeting, supporting a community vision to be friendly, responsible, thriving and proud.
The endorsement follows a 28-day public exhibition period.
The plan’s purpose is to identify the community's main priorities and aspirations for the next ten to twenty years and to plan strategies for achieving these goals.
Mayor Liz Innes said she was grateful to the 2,000 community members who participated in the plan review process, which started last December with a photo competition, surveys, a community roundtable workshop and a range of face-to-face and online opportunities.
“The aim of the plan is to encourage council, the community and other agencies to work together as one community to deliver on our vision for the future.”
Council has developed nine outcome areas with 34 supporting strategies to achieve the community’s visions.
43 key community indicators will monitor progress, which Council will track and report on in four years’ time.
The nine outcomes areas are:
Strong communities, desirable lifestyle
Celebrated creativity, culture and learning
Protected and valued natural environment
Vibrant and diverse economy
Responsible and balanced development
Connected and accessible places
Collaborative and engaged community
Innovative and proactive leadership
