Campaspe Shire has gone to ratepayers to find their dreams for the shire’s future as part of the Campaspe: Our Future project.
The shire has hosted three workshops and five pop-up activities, seeking ideas.
Mayor Ian Maddison said it was not too late for people to have their say.
‘‘The Campaspe: Our Future project is about creating a vibrant, healthy and prosperous future for the shire, a future that reflects the desires priorities and aspirations of our community,’’ he said.
‘‘The project is not about what you want to see next week or next year.
‘‘It’s about looking to the future, thinking outside the square and planning for the next 20-plus years.’’
Information gathered from the community will be put into a draft plan which will be available for public comment.
Residents can take part in an online survey at www.campaspe.vic.gov.au with submissions closing on Friday.
