Logan: City of Choice
The Logan: City of Choice initiative is helping the City of Logan grow and prosper. It is an initiative of Logan City Council, delivered in partnership with our community, business and non-government sectors, and the Queensland and Australian Governments.
The City of Choice Leadership Team supports outcomes where an independent team of community and thought leaders has the capacity to influence key government, business and philanthropic stakeholders that are beyond the traditional scope of local government.
In 2017/18, the City of Choice Leadership Team was refreshed and its focused renewed.
The new team again includes representatives from the Australian Government, Queensland Government, Logan City Council and a range of sector experts.
The new 2017-2019 City of Choice Leadership Team met for the first time on March 23 2018 and identified three initial priorities:
- Social housing and place-making
- Education and employment pathways
- Federal Government's drug testing of welfare recipients.
The team is progressing initiatives and responses to all three priorities, meeting every two months and convening workshops and other discussion groups as required.
In its first phase, the City of Choice initiative was delivered through the City of Choice Two-Year Action Plan 2013-2015. It was the result of the Logan: City of Choice Summit in February 2013, which attracted more than 1,000 people from community, business and non-government sectors, as well as Council, Queensland and Australian Government representatives. The Action Plan was formally endorsed by Logan City Council in December 2013. It outlined actions across the following key themes:
- Social infrastructure (including youth)
- Communication and community involvement
An independent City of Choice Leadership Team was created to drive and oversee delivery of the Action Plan. It comprised representatives from the community, business sector, non-government agencies, the Australian Government, Queensland Government and Logan City Council.
Achievements in the first phase can be found in update reports on our City of Choice Key Documents page.
