Council launches ‘Towards 2042’ consultation

Snowy Monaro Regional Council is today announcing the Towards 2042 project, an initiative to create a Community Strategic Plan in consultation with the public that will guide our region’s governance and development over the next 20 years.

The Towards 2042 Project is led by the Canberra Regional Joint Organisation (CRJO) with participation from: Bega Valley Shire Council, Goulburn Mulwaree Council, Hilltops Council, Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council, Snowy Monaro Regional Council, Snowy Valleys Council, Upper Lachlan Shire Council and Yass Valley Council to develop the new round of Community Strategic Plans.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our community to once again share their ideas and influence the future development of our region. It’s your chance to tell us what you think you, your friends, family and the people of the Snowy Monaro will need to grow and succeed through the next two decades,” said Mayor Peter Beer, Snowy Monaro Regional Council.

The Towards 2042 community consultation process will commence with a range of activities across the local government area, including a survey which can be completed online at:

“I encourage everyone to get involved and to have their say. Full details explaining how to get involved are on our website. There will be several opportunities for the community to share their thoughts – with surveys, pop-ups, and for our younger residents, creative drawing kits,” Mayor Beer said.

Towards 2042 aims to answer a number of key questions, focusing on where we are now, where we want to be in twenty years, how we will get there, and how we will know if we’ve been successful.

Council is initiating and preparing the Community Strategic Plan, but ultimately it is a community plan. Many partners, such as state agencies and community groups, will be responsible for its implementation.

The Community Strategic Plan ensures the whole community is working towards a shared vision for a better future.
