Update 6 May 2024

Over the past nine weeks, members of the Maroondah Community Panel have been exploring results of the broad community engagement process undertaken in the second half of 2023 and into 2024 as well as considering the outcomes of background research undertaken by SGS Economics as they worked in partnership with Council to draft the Maroondah 2050 Community Vision.

A diverse and representative group comprising of 26 members of the Maroondah community attended five workshop sessions (totalling 28 hours) on weekends and weeknights as part of the Maroondah 2050 Community Panel.

Panel members were selected to represent and share views of the Maroondah community on our collective future. They were asked to critically test, weigh up and consider a range of information, perspectives, inputs and evidence to make recommendations for Maroondah’s 2050 Community Vision, four-year Council Plan 2025-29 and the 10-year Financial and Asset Plans.

The Community Panel’s ideas for the Maroondah 2050 Community Vision were presented to Councillors and members of the Corporate Management Team at the final workshop session held on Saturday 4 May.

The Vision will now be consolidated by Council, taking into consideration all other community engagement input provided during this project.



Your Maroondah - Our Future

Council asked the community: Imagine Maroondah in 2050. What do you hope our community is like? What do we need to prioritise? What are the things we most need to change? Share your thoughts, aspirations and ideas to help shape the future of Maroondah.

For almost 10 years, the Maroondah 2040 - Our future together Community Vision has provided a roadmap to assist our community and Council to work with partner organisations and other levels of government to enhance Maroondah as a great place to live, work, play and visit.

Maroondah City Council is working in partnership with our community to create a new Maroondah 2050 Community Vision for our City which reflects our community’s aspirations and priorities.

What's been happening

Between August to early December 2023, Council consulted with the broader community to hear your thoughts, aspirations, and ideas on the future of Maroondah.

Initial findings show that the Maroondah community highly values our natural environment, particularly Maroondah’s green, leafy nature; flora and fauna; parks; tree canopies, and green spaces.

This is closely followed by the location, proximity and accessibility of Maroondah, including the City’s location within greater Melbourne; ease of access to local services and facilities; and transport options. Neighbourhood character and sense of space, safety and peacefulness are also considered important.

The extensive community engagement process included online, and hard copy surveys and more than 30 face-to-face engagement sessions held at Council events and other locations across Maroondah. Workshops were also held with Council’s seven advisory committees, along with targeted workshops with young people, culturally and linguistically diverse community leaders, and over 80 community and business leaders from across Maroondah.

Further engagement has been undertaken from January to May 2024 including:

  • Deliberative engagement via the Maroondah Community Panel
  • Further targeted community and stakeholder engagement to ensure that feedback captured is representative of the entire Maroondah community.

The next stage

Results from all forms of the engagement process will be reviewed and considered by Council prior to the draft Maroondah 2050 Community Vision being presented to Councillors.
