Future Communities

Our purpose

The Future Communities portfolio advocates for vibrant inclusive and engaged neighbourhoods both now through events and festivals, and for the long term through strategic initiatives such as MV2040 and ‘20 minute neighbourhoods.’

It provides the platform for advocacy across the municipality and the challenges we face, and works with other portfolio councillors to optimise opportunities for our community and ensure the communities of the future have their needs considered in relation to factors such as planning, transport, facilities and infrastructure, recreation and small business.
