Indigo 2030


What do you see?

Indigo Shire in the year 2030

What was the Indigo 2030 project?

If you had a crystal ball, what do you think you would see in Indigo Shire in the year 2030? This project involved Indigo residents imagining the future and how it might be achieved. This is the story of how we did it. And at the end of the process, we won an award for it - the 2011 John Jago Good Governance Award from the Victorian Local Governance Association.

Why did we do it?

In order to plan for the future, we need a clear direction.  Indigo 2030 generated community conversations and identified ideas, values and priorities. Indigo 2030 Report provides a high level, long-term pointer for the Council and the community from which more specific planning can be developed. It sits above the Council Plan, which guides the work Council does during a four-year election cycle.
