2030 vision of Burnie ready for final public submissions

The community’s vision for Burnie in the year 2030 is now in its final stages.

At last night’s Council meeting (16 August, 2011) Council noted the final draft of the Community Strategic Plan

‘Making Burnie 2030’. The draft strategic plan will now be available for a final period of public submissions.

Making Burnie 2030 brought together 500 clever, creative, audacious, inspiring and compassionate people from across the community, to share their thoughts, dreams and ideas and to plan together for the future, according to Deputy Mayor and Chair of the Making Burnie 2030 Steering Committee Anita Dow.

“It is inspiring to see so many people interested in and passionate about the bright future of our city and we thank them for their contribution,” she said.

The plan sets out six key directions that contain a set of indicators that will be used to measure and assess the progress toward achieving the Making Burnie 2030 vision.

“From this plan, Council will develop its own corporate plan and identify its primary responsibilities.

“However the success of Making Burnie 2030 hinges on all the community partners committing to develop their own goals and strategies and the community working together to ensure we meet the broader objectives. This really is the true meaning of a community plan,” she said.

The community is now invited to make public submissions on the final draft format and content. Submissions close Monday 12 September 2011.

The Making Burnie 2030 Community Strategic Plan can be viewed online or at Burnie City Council city offices at 80 Wilson Street Burnie.
