What should life on the Mornington Peninsula look like in 2040?
Published on 27 April 2021
That’s the question Mornington Peninsula Shire is asking the community throughout May and June.
The ‘Imagine: Peninsula 2040’ project is the biggest community engagement initiative ever undertaken by Council and it is seeking feedback from as many community members as possible.
The first phase of the project will feature an online questionnaire, pop up stalls hosted by our community ambassadors throughout the Peninsula and online forums asking people to imagine the future and provide feedback about what life should look like on the Peninsula in 20 years’ time.
The second phase will feature a randomly selected citizens’ panel, which will distil all this feedback into a Community Vision to present to Council. The Community Vision will then guide the development of other Council documents such as the Council Plan, Health and Wellbeing Plan and the long-term Financial Plan.
The project kicks off with an online community launch hosted by Mayor Cr Despi O'Connor where the community can learn more about how to be involved and spread the word.

Quotes attributable to Mayor Despi O'Connor:
"This is a wonderful opportunity for the Mornington Peninsula community and Council to shape our future together.
"Providing your feedback is so important because once we have a clear picture of what the community wants the future to look like, we’ll be able to develop policies, programs and projects that steer the Peninsula in that direction.
"I encourage as many of our community members as possible to join us in imaging the future."
