Maroondah 2040

Maroondah 2040: Our future together, was endorsed by Council in June 2014, providing a roadmap for our 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.

To develop the plan, we worked with our community, partners and service providers, to understand what key factors were influencing Maroondah's future. We met with many people across the community to find out what they loved about Maroondah and what they would like to see changed. Arising from this extensive consultation emerged Maroondah 2040: Our future together which included a community vision statement:

"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."

Over the past 18 months, Council has undertaken research and engaged the Maroondah community to understand what has changed and what our future priorities should be.

From this process has emerged a revised Maroondah 2040 Community Vision that captures the latest community aspirations and priorities, emerging themes and trends, and provides the strategic blueprint for Council and the community to continue to work together to shape the future of Maroondah to the year 2040. This refreshed Maroondah 2040 Community Vision was adopted by Council on 22 June 2020.

Measuring our progress

To measure progress toward achieving the preferred outcomes outlined in Maroondah 2040: Our future together, a State of Maroondah report is prepared periodically. This report celebrates achievements, recognises efforts, monitors trends and identifies areas for future improvement.

The State of Maroondah Report 2019 highlights some of the achievements of Council over the past two years along with how the municipality is tracking against some of the Maroondah 2040 ‘community indicators of progress’.
