In establishing a statement of vision for the community we are trying to establish what it is the community wants to see, what is in your minds eye. Perhaps another way of explaining the vision statement is that it is a statement of what our community would wish to be like in the future.
"Our community shall enjoy a quality of life and services second to no other country town in Australia."
The mission statement is a statement of what the organisation will do, for whom, and to what standard.
"Our mission is to plan and deliver quality services, and encourage responsible development, for the community in an equitable manner."
