It is a tribute to the community spirit of Boroondara that we have received thousands of responses to our call for contributions to the Boroondara 10-year community plan.

In November we started asking our residents what’s important to them in Boroondara. It was wonderful to see how many community members took the time to let us know what mattered to them, and how positive they were about life in Boroondara. We’re now halfway through the second stage of this work, and we’ve asked you to tell us how you would prioritise the seven broad themes we’ve grouped your original responses into.

We want you to make your voice heard – you can tell us online how important you think each theme is to you, or come to one of the Pop-up Council events at Maling Road on Sunday 9 April or the Boroondara Farmer’s Market on Saturday 15 April. Details are available at

We believe it’s essential that we create our 10-year plan alongside our community. It’s your input that will guide our services, facilities, and future budgets through 2017-27. I am proud to be working to serve a community that so obviously cares about each other, and about the future.

Together, we will create a plan that honours what makes Boroondara such a remarkable place to live today, and guarantees we are building for tomorrow.
