Measures of success

How will this vision be used to deliver outcomes?

Greater Geelong: A Clever and Creative Future is a community-generated guide for Greater Geelong as it plans its next 30 years.

The breadth and depth of the consultation process means that it is representative of the Greater Geelong community’s views and preferences.

The vision will remain a key resource for Council, all levels of government, organisations, businesses and anyone wanting to make a genuine contribution to the future of Greater Geelong.

My vision for Greater Geelong is a region where the community is consulted and council make decisions based on the results.

I’d like to see individuality, creativity and uniqueness encouraged within our community so that regardless of religious, cultural or social background, everyone is treated fairly and seen as having a vital role in our future.
