The Blue Mountains City Vision
After extensive community consultation, in July 2003 Blue Mountains City Council adopted a community endorsed 25-year City Vision and Map for Action: Towards a More Sustainable Blue Mountains.
In further consultation with the community, commencing in 2007, the Map for Action has been reviewed and updated to meet the new reform requirements for NSW local governments to develop "Community Strategic Plans" and renamed Sustainable Blue Mountains 2025.
In 2010 the Council implemented further consultation and engagement with residents and State Agencies on the Sustainable Blue Mountains 2025 and its resourcing through a range of methods including: the Community Survey, Resident Focus Groups and a Workshop with State Agency representatives as well as a public exhibition period.
Each newly elected local Council will be responsible for reviewing and updating Sustainable Blue Mountains 2025 within the first twelve months of their term.
The Council will continue to monitor and report on the progress of all stakeholders in implementing Sustainable Blue Mountains 2025 once every four years through the State of the City Report. To view the Blue Mountains State of City Report go to www.sustainablebluemountains.net.au/our-progress/state-of-city-report.
Sustainable Blue Mountains 2025 is offered to all Blue Mountains stakeholders - residents and visitors, community organisations, other government agencies and Council - as a map for achieving the results that will lead to a more sustainable City in a World Heritage environment.
