Reflecting on Council's Progress.png

Murrindindi Shire Council is inviting your input as it looks ahead to the next four years and celebrates the achievements.

Council is inviting the community to reflect on the progress made to date on our 2021-2025 Council Plan and actively inform the next Council Plan 2025-2029.

A Progress Report has been released, showcasing some of the key projects and initiatives we have delivered, along with some background documents describing the changes since the community set the 10-Year Vision in 2021.

You can share your thoughts by filling out an online feedback form, or by completing a paper form at our Library and Customer Service Centres in Alexandra, Yea and Kinglake. A copy of the Progress Report is also available to read at our Centres or online.

We encourage community members to attend upcoming “Warm Bowls, Hot Topics” sessions where Council officers will be facilitating in person discussions and capturing feedback. These sessions will be held in the following locations:

Kinglake Community Centre, 436 Whittlesea-Kinglake Road, Kinglake - 8 July, 6.30 to 8.30 pm

Yea Council Chambers, 15 The Semi Circle Yea - 10 July, 6.00 to 8.00 pm

Marysville Community Centre, 31 Falls Road – 11 July, 12 noon to 2.00 pm

Alexandra Shire Hall, 55 Grant Street - 15 July, 6.00 to 8.00 pm

Come and enjoy some soup while you chat and share your ideas. We are also offering an online session for those who can’t attend in person.

During June and July Council staff will be attending community events around the Shire, discussing the project and seeking feedback

By providing your feedback by 21 July 2024, you will also go in the draw to win one of three $100 FoodWorks vouchers.

Murrindindi Shire Council Mayor Damien Gallagher said “Every four years, Council prepares a Council Plan to guide the work we do for people who live, work and visit our Shire. It’s important we hear from as many people in our community as we can to help shape the path forward for the next four years. We want to know what you think about what we’ve been doing. Have we been focusing our efforts on the right areas? What other things should Council be doing in the next four years? Your feedback is valuable to us as we plan for the future and help inform candidates for the 2024-28 Council. Together, let’s ensure our efforts truly reflect the needs and aspirations of our community.”
