Community Vision and Council Plan

Council is embarking on an exciting strategic planning project that will outline the strategic direction and priorities for our future.


Throughout this project Council will be developing a:

  • Community Vision - a long-term vision that outlines the aspirations and goals of the Alpine Share community and what you want to see in the future
  • Council Plan – a four year plan that outlines how Council’s role and hot it will pursue the aspirations and goals outlined in the Community Vison and other strategic priorities.
  • Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan – which includes an examination of the health and wellbeing of our community, setting goals and strategies with the assistance of community feedback to achieve better public health and wellbeing, and measuring our success.
  • Financial Plan – a long-term plan that ensures the Council has the financial resources to implement its plans and strategies over the coming years
  • Asset Plan – provides a view of how the Council proposes to manage the full portfolio of assets that it owns.
