What's it all about
Our long-term vision for our city sets our priorities and carries the thoughts, aspirations and dreams of our community into action.
We have been working alongside our community to understand what people in our city want the future of Hamilton Kirikiriroa to look like. We've used this feedback to develop five priorities for us to ensure Hamilton becomes one of the very best places in the world to live.
- Shape a city that's easy to live in
- Shape a city where our people thrive
- Shape a central city where our people love to be
- Shape a fun city with lots to do
- Shape a green city
These priorities will shape future decisions, including the 2021-31 Long-Term Plan, which sets the budget and projects for the next 10 years.
How we got here?
On 9 and 10 December 2020, Elected Members decided which projects to include in the 2021-31 draft Long-Term Plan, and what the proposed rates increases and other measures in our Financial Strategy would be.
