Plan for Burnie 2030 released

Earlier this year the Burnie City Council extended an invitation to the whole community to be bold, to share their dreams, to shed their inhibitions and get excited about the future of Burnie.

Over 500 community members were involved in developing the Making Burnie 2030 community plan that was released today.

 Making Burnie 2030has enabled the Burnie community to collaboratively reflect on our past, understand our present, re-establish our vision and values and set a mandate to pursue six future directions.

Chair of Making Burnie 2030 and Deputy Mayor Anita Dow said, “The finished document is an eye catching, bold and very honest document. It is a fabulous tool for presenting and sharing the outcomes of this important community project. It shows just what our community can achieve when we work together for the betterment of our city.

“This plan is not a Council plan, it’s the Burnie community’s strategic plan. Making Burnie 2030 is a lasting legacy and this is what makes it a truly inspiring and powerful community engagement project.

“I urge all community members to view a copy of the beautifully presented Making Burnie 2030 plan. Share a copy with others and get excited about what the future holds for your city. I challenge you to identify one area you can play an active role in facilitating change in your community.”

Copies of the Making Burnie 2030 plan are available for free from the Burnie City Council Chambers at 80 Wilson Street or online.
