New Council committed to the Clever-Creative vision
Geelong now has a Council which is fully committed to the Clever Creative vision.
In an election survey, Geelong Sustainability asked: “From the extensive community engagement of the Our Future process, a 30-year consensus vision for the City of Greater Geelong was developed. ‘By 2047, Greater Geelong will be internationally recognised as a clever and creative city-region that is forward looking, enterprising and adaptive, and cares for its people and environment.’ If elected as a Councillor, do you commit to implementing the Clever and Creative Future vision including the necessary long-term strategies, short-term action plans and organisational changes?”
Six candidates who will now be councillors at a table with 11 seats – Sarah Mansfield, Stephanie Asher, Jim Mason, Bruce Harwood, Peter Murrihy and Trent Sullivan – replied that they are fully committed to the vision. The other five didn’t respond to the survey. But already with six councillors being fully committed, it means that there is a majority support for the implementation of the Clever Creative vision.
