Murrindindi 2030 Vision

Murrindindi Shire Council has developed a Community Vision to take the Municipality through to 2030.

This Vision has been inspired by Community Workshops and a Community Survey that was completed by almost 300 residents. The 2030 Vision describes the attributes and values that our community sees as important in shaping our future in terms of our community, the place in which we live and the opportunity available.

Council adopted the Murrindindi 2030 Vision at its October 2014 Council Meeting and the Implementation Statement at its May 2015 Council Meeting.

The Vision 2030 will inform and guide Council’s planning and activities over next 15 years, including the annual review of the Council Plan and will be a benchmark against which the implementation of the strategies within the Council Plan will be assessed.

 In Murrindindi 2030: "We are sustainable, vibrant and resilient. We focus on growing our business opportunities. Our communities are safe and connected, enjoying a healthy and productive lifestyle within our wonderful natural environment."

The Community: The communities of Murrindindi Shire retain the rural character and charm that has defined them for generations. Communities embrace new arrivals who share a desire for our quality lifestyle and who expand our rich and diverse culture. People in our communities choose to become actively involved in community and civic affairs. Our communities are inter-connected and have access to quality services.

The Place: In the year 2030, Murrindindi Shire is a place that cherishes its rural environment and mountain ranges. It extends from the peri-urban communities of the Kinglake Ranges through to the rural townships of Yea, Alexandra and Eildon and the communities around Marysville. Murrindindi Shire treasures and protects its environment, its rolling hills and landscapes. This includes its charming townships, beautiful rural areas, pristine rivers and waterways, and National Parks. In 2030, the population of Murrindindi Shire has grown within the constraints of planning controls to protect rural areas. As a result, we have retained our unique main street and village environments with the landscape and scenic aspects protected. Murrindindi Shire is a place of natural outstanding beauty.

The Opportunity: In 2030, Murrindindi Shire will have capitalised on its rural economic strength and created new value adding opportunities. We have protected the natural surrounds and the environments that are critical to our economic success. Our townships are healthy and growing with the offer of a diverse range of attractions including tourism, food and hospitality; we have created a package of lifestyle, education and business opportunities that appeals to a local and international audience. Our proximity to the metropolitan area will offer opportunities for personal and business success.
