Community visioning moves into Stage 2

In September and October 2020, we asked the community: ‘If it was up to you, what would the City of Logan be like in the future’?

The question prompted a wide range of responses. It has given us an initial sense of what’s important to the people who call Logan home. The open-ended question was the first stage in our journey to develop a new vision for our city, which is growing at the fastest rate in its 40-year history.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to have a say in Stage

Community visioning moves into Stage 2

In September and October 2020, we asked the community: ‘If it was up to you, what would the City of Logan be like in the future’?

The question prompted a wide range of responses. It has given us an initial sense of what’s important to the people who call Logan home. The open-ended question was the first stage in our journey to develop a new vision for our city, which is growing at the fastest rate in its 40-year history.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to have a say in Stage 1. We received 397 responses through:

  • Have Your Say Logan (this website)
  • Council’s social media platforms
  • Hard copy post cards.

Stage 2 is all about building on what we’ve heard so far and providing an opportunity for those we haven’t yet heard from to share their thoughts. We want people from all walks of life and all geographic areas to contribute to our vision.

What we heard in Stage 1

Several early themes have emerged, relating to:

  • development
  • the look and feel of the city
  • transport
  • safety and crime
  • recreation
  • the natural environment.

You can read the results in more detail here.

It’s early days in our journey, so these themes may shift and change as we check in with the community and hear from more people.

What do you think about these initial results? What is missing from the mix? Have your say here.

What’s happening in Stage 2?

In Stage 2, we want to hear your thoughts on these emerging themes. We’ll also undertake targeted engagement to ensure as wide a range as possible of people across our community have the chance to have a say.

In Stage 3 (early next year), we’ll establish a panel to represent our community’s many faces and voices. This panel, brought together by independent consultant and supported by content experts, will create a vision of shared hopes and aspirations.

What is a community vision and why do we need one?

A community vision is simply a way of describing how we, collectively, want to see our city in the future.

  • What are our priorities?
  • What’s necessary to create to a vibrant, healthy community?

Every five years, Council develops a corporate plan. That plan sets priorities for how Council will invest in infrastructure (roads, libraries, water, waste, parks etc.). It also outlines how we will deliver programs and services in the short, medium and long-term. The community vision will influence what those priorities are.
