What's it all about
We're working on a long-term vision for our city that 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. These priorities will shape future decisions, including the upcoming Long-Term Plan, which sets the budget and projects for the next 10 years.
How we got here
Our vision for Hamilton
The themes and ideas shared by our community have fed into 'Our vision for Hamilton'. Within each of the five priorities featured in 'Our vision for Hamilton' are five key areas of work for Council to focus on. We're excited to share the draft 'Our vision for Hamilton' document with you and believe it is a true reflection of what matters most to our people and their communities.
