‘‘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.
