The City of Casey adopted four major strategies at its council meeting on Tuesday 19 October, after several weeks of consultation with residents.
Following a four-week public consultation period throughout August and September, the following strategies were formally endorsed by the council, with the actions from each to be delivered for our community:
The Infrastructure Strategy 2021-25
The Economic Development Strategy 2021-25
The Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2021-25
The Environment Strategy 2021-25
Each of these strategies were developed based on extensive recent community consultation, as well as the Shape Your City engagement program, which heard from more than 6000 community members.
City of Casey chair of administrators Noelene Duff said she was proud of the work that went into developing these documents, as well as the commitment to involving our residents and ensuring their voices were heard.
“Each of these four documents set out a series of ambitious and exciting steps, which will better position Council to support our community, and help to deliver on their priorities for the future,” Ms Duff said.
“From getting our community more active, to contributing to lower family violence rates, creating a more connected community via roads and transport, and creating a more sustainable environment, there are so many important aspects of these documents that we will be focused on.
“Each strategy is centred around providing better outcomes for our community and will also help to deliver on Council’s Long-Term Community Vision 2031, which is to become a more connected, bold and resilient community.”
The actions from these strategies are also connected to the deliverables in the Council Plan 2021-25.
“I would like to take this opportunity again to thank the Casey community for providing their valuable feedback to help build these strategies and help us tackle some of the major challenges and opportunities that face our city,” Ms Duff added.
“Our residents’ input is invaluable and helps ensure Council is planning for and meeting the needs of the people who matter most.”
