Our community vision

In 2040, Maroondah will be a vibrant and diverse city with a healthy and active community, living in green leafy neighbourhoods which are connected to thriving and accessible activity centres contributing to a prosperous economy within a safe, inclusive and sustainable environment.

The Maroondah 2040 Community Vision captures the aspirations, desires, dreams, and priorities of the community looking ahead to the year 2040 and beyond.

This long term vision provides a ‘roadmap’ for the community, Council and other levels of government to partner together and create a future that enhances Maroondah as a great place to live, work, play and visit.
