Our Future

Our Future is a project to develop a long term community vision for the municipality of Geelong.

We all recognise the potential of Geelong. Our Future will capture this potential, and guide decision making and investment in our municipality into the future.

More about the project.

"The leading regional city for sustainability and bio technology with the best bike network in Australia. A world class tourist destination with unique points of interest and a flourishing creative industry. A university town attracting the brightest minds."

Matt says:

"Better connected bike paths to new areas such as Armstrong creek. Realisation of the Armstrong creek developments with schools and community services. Light rail public transport to costal communities, less cars, more employment options for our children in the technology industries, more cbd living and better use of the waterfront."

David says:

"A green, attractive city with a positive outlook, where 75% of people get around by active or public transport for 75% of the time, where there are diverse employers across all sectors spread across the municipality, where there are quality formal and informal educational opportunities for everyone, and where creativity and innovation is encouraged and practiced."

Joshua says:

"A climate resiliant, economically prosperous, socially inclusive and walkable city that is vibrant with native flora along all roads and on roofs alongside solar panels. Expressions of local creativity are celebrated, publically visible, and encouraged with emphasis on including at risk youth. Efficient public transport dominates the roads with less need for personal vehicles and old parking lots replaced with recreational green spaces. Residents of Geelong are now proud of their home."

Rod Thomas says:

"A vibrant city, attracting new individuals and businesses that develop and implement new ideas. A city that is providing leadership on environmental projects and that is well connected by walking, cycling and public transport. A city that utilises technology to its full potential and has a culture that explores ideas, taking advantage of its Tafe and University sectors."

Tony says:

"We'll be living local - close to shops, education and entertainment that's lively and creative. Huge improvements to public transport, cycling and walking - you'll be able to walk, ride anywhere around Geelong because it's fun, safe and completely comfortable. Cars will be used much less. Streets to become parks. Sustainability will be the new normal - energy and transport more humble, powered by renewable. Lifestyle, work opportunities, community wellbeing will be off the charts"

27/10/2016
Dave says:

"Promote the location better to bring out its' beauty and sense of place. Promote startup culture with conferences, start up grants, and links to University. The internet communications technology industry could provide good jobs. Build high bandwidth infrastructure to attract investment and a digital culture. Make it accessible for all greater Geelong residents to kickstart this culture. "

"A Geelong where you can safely ride your bike to work, park it securely and go home to enjoyable surrounds rather than empty parks with minimal facilities."

"Geelong is a great and green place to live, work and play."
