Melton City 2036 – The City We Imagine will be the first community vision for the City of Melton and highlights opportunities and challenges for the municipality.

The draft of Melton City 2036 - The City We Imagine was released and we thank everyone who provided feedback during the consultation period. The Phase 2 report is now available.

In early 2016, Council invited the community to contribute to a shared vision for the future – a detailed picture of where we want the City to be in 2036. Throughout the process, more than 2,000 people shared what they love about living in the City of Melton, what they don’t like and what their hopes are for our City in 2036.

People were diverse in age and gender with different cultural backgrounds and abilities. And they had different connection to the city; some people live here, some people work here and some people visit. People filled in a short questionnaire, were involved in the online engagement forum, responded to the annual household survey, participated in face-to-face community workshops and provided input at community events.

It puts people first, embedding them at the heart of the vision and surrounded by four domains:

  • Our safe and socially connected City
  • Our well-built City
  • Our strong local economy
  • Our thriving natural environment

The draft report was released in February 2017 for consultation and the community were invited to provide feedback. The feedback was used to finalise the document so we can work towards achieving the vision of Melton City 2036 – The City we Imagine.
