Through the Knox@50 community engagement project conducted in 2012-2013, many Knox residents, business people and community members shared their ideas and thoughts. Councillors, management and staff also had input.
Together a Vision for the Knox community was created which shows us what our future could and should look like. A City Plan was also developed, which outlines how Knox’s Vision will be achieved.
The City Plan identifies shared objectives for the future of Knox, direction for Council’s activities and clear priorities. The objectives developed are shared and implemented through the effort of multiple agencies and stakeholders.
Included in the City Plan is the Council Plan, which is based on the priorities of Council and the issues identified by the community.
The Council Plan outlines the strategic direction of the organisation and is resourced by the Strategic Resource Plan. It also assists in annually identifying key projects and actions for the coming year which are outlined in the Annual Plan and resourced through the Annual Budget.
Take a look at our short video that talks about the collaboration between Council and the community to develop the Vision and City Plan, and outlines what our priorities are going forward.
