Strategic Plan 2020-24

MURRAY BRIDGE: MAKE IT YOURS!

Conversations with community are vital for planning what the future of our Rural City will look like and the steps we need to take to get there.

Murray Bridge is changing and now is the time to take stock, review what we have achieved and forge forward.

Since receiving community feedback in 2015, Murray Bridge Council has invested in developing our community.

You told us to:
• activate the river and Sturt Reserve
• maintain a country lifestyle
• maintain and improve services
• improve economic development and job availability
• ensure activities for youth
• support community pride and identity

As a result, we introduced:
• Improvements along Adelaide Road
• Upgrades to boat ramps
• The SPLASH! Festival in summer holidays
• The Murray Bridge Fringe street party
• Expansion of the Skate Park
• The new Water Play Park at the pool
• Entrance signage
• and many other initiatives.

It is now time for Council to plan the next four years of projects and we want to hear from you.

Engagement opportunities will include community meetings, an open day, presentations at community group meetings and gatherings, meeting in person with Council representative at local events, polls and a survey.

Once you let us know what you think the priorities should be, we will create a draft document for further consultation to ensure we create a Strategic Plan for a future we can all be proud of.

Everyone has the opportunity to contribute and help create a viable a bright future: Murray Bridge - make it yours!

Let us know what you think Council's priorities should be by participating in the polls, share a Great Idea and come along to one of our community meetings - we hope to see you there!

As part of the conversation a Youth Art Competition will explore the theme ‘What do you think Murray Bridge will look like in 2024?’. The competition is now open and there are great prizes up for grabs! Entries can include a song, poem, visual art or written essay. Entries close Friday 27 September 2019. All entries will go into a raffle draw to win prizes with a total value of $150. Winners could take home a prize valued at up to $200 with the winning submission being published in the final version of the Strategic Plan 2020-24, as well as part of an art show at the Murray Bridge Gallery in late January 2020.
