Logan's local innovation, new ideas and technology improve existing processes and systems. This improves the lives of our community and the function of the city.

City Vision

Innovative, dynamic city of the future

Imagine a well-planned sustainable city that has local and global reach. The City of Logan is a place with a rich history and diversity. A place where people and business are adaptable.

City Futures Strategy

On 17 April 2018, Council endorsed the City Futures Strategy.

Our Programs

Advancing Regional Innovation Program (ARIP)

ARIP is a three-year funding program supported by the Queensland Government. The program aims to turn our region into a thriving hub for innovation and enterprise.

We partnered with Griffith University and Redland City Council to deliver events and activities. This helps to build a sustainable innovation culture and ecosystem.

We support our region to become a place where both local and global businesses choose to invest. Where our community can live, work and play.

City Studio Logan Program

CityStudio Logan seeks to inspire action for meaningful change in our city.

Cities are better when we build them together. City staff, students, educators and community work together to design experimental projects. These projects respond to the current needs of our city.

We identify current city challenges. We match them with education partners. Educators develop their teaching around these challenges through project-based learning. Students draw on their passion and develop practical skills in a real-world context. They launch their projects in the local community with support from City staff and educators.

We licensed this model from CityStudio Vancouver in 2018. CityStudio Logan is currently running a series of pilot projects. We plan to expand our partnerships with education organisations step-by-step.
