Adopted Community Vision

Feedback on the draft Community Vision has now closed

During Stage One of the Shaping Our Future project, we asked you what you thought is important for the future of Murrindindi Shire. A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to provide input.


All feedback will be considered by Council and will help finalise the Community Vision.


Earlier this year, Council invited community members to share their ideas and opinions on what they think is important for the future of Murrindindi Shire, as part of the Shaping Our Future project.

We’ve put together a Community Engagement Report which provides an overview of the community engagement process, the different engagement methods used and the demographics of the participants.

We’ve also prepared a Community Vision Findings Report which summarises the ideas and input we received from the community about the Community Vision.

This helped inform both the drafting of this Community Vision and the ongoing work to develop Murrindindi Shire’s Council Plan.

What is a Community Vision?

A Community Vision is an important document that describes our community’s long-term hopes, dreams and aspirations for Murrindindi Shire. Council is required to develop a Community Vision for a minimum of ten years under the Local Government Act 2020.

It will be driven, developed and owned by Council and the Murrindindi Shire community.

The Community Vision will also shape our next four-year Council Plan and Financial Plan.

This is our chance to partner with our community and build a shared vision.


Stage One of the Shaping Our Future project kicked off on 10 March 2021, with a six week community consultation period. During this stage, Council asked the community to complete an online survey via The Loop. The survey included questions about community values and the aspirations that community members have for the future of Murrindindi Shire. It also included questions about which areas the community thinks Council should focus its efforts in.

The survey was also available in paper form, and community members could also complete the survey via phone.

A short version of the survey was available on the Loop for completion in-person at one of our pop-up kiosks held across the Shire. This short survey was made available on paper in Easy English format.

Over 500 were involved in the community consultation and shared their ideas, thoughts and opinions.

The Shaping Our Future Project was promoted through various communication channels, including

  • Advertisements in local papers and newsletters
  • Council’s Facebook page
  • Direct emails to community members interested in keeping up to date with the Project
  • Council’s Quarterly Community Newsletter
  • Flyers on Community Noticeboards across the Shire
  • Council’s website and our online community engagement platform, The Loop
  • Promotion via Community and Neighbourhood Houses across the Shire
