City of Choice report on 2015 achievements now available
Published: 30 May 2016
The strong partnership between all levels of government and the community continues to be one of the hallmarks of the Logan: City of Choice initiative, which in 2015 delivered Under This Sky: Logan's Musical Celebration, progressed key employment and housing projects, and launched Logan Together.
These are among highlights of the Logan: City of Choice Update Report 2015, the latest update from Logan City Council, the Queensland Government and Australian Government on progress of the Logan: City of Choice Two-Year Action Plan (2013-2015).
Logan: City of Choice Leadership Team Chair Jude Munro said the report demonstrated the excellent work being delivered by all three levels of government through the Leadership Team, in partnership with local businesses and the community.
"Exciting in-roads are being made into finding new ways to improve early childhood development, social housing, public transport and employment opportunities in our city.
"We are also working to make our community even more inclusive and cohesive through initiatives that build pride and strengthen a sense of belonging," Ms Munro said.
Mayor Luke Smith said he was pleased to see the City of Choice initiative has continued to develop and deliver ground-breaking projects for the City of Logan community.
"I've been impressed by the way our three levels of government are working together to find new ways to tackle 'big picture' challenges and make the most of exciting new opportunities.
"Fantastic work has been done to date, but it's just the start. We need to build on our achievements and momentum because this journey is critical to ensuring everyone in our community has the same opportunities to thrive," Mayor Smith said.
"Moving forward, City of Choice will refine its focus to provide a strong, evidence-based and responsive voice for the community. The City of Choice Leadership Team will help mobilise the community through building greater awareness of key issues and their importance to the city's future, as well as opportunities to help influence outcomes."
To support planning for the future City of Choice, Logan City Council has researched and published an addendum to the State of the City Report 2013 - the State of the City Report 2015. The addendum includes key indicators and data relating to identified emerging issues, including health and domestic and family violence.
