Greater Hume 2030 

Vision Statement

Living in an idyllic rural landscape that sets us apart, we draw on our passion and location to maintain a model community for people of all ages whilst building an economy that abounds with opportunities.
A number of key aspects are being sought in the vision statement; namely:
Draw on our passion – we cannot afford to expect someone else to always work on our behalf to achieve all that we seek; we must draw on the passion we have for our community and each other and be involved.
Maintain a model community for people of all ages – if we work together, we can maintain a community that looks after our people as well as our farmland and natural beauty.  We can be a community that others aspire to be like.
An economy that abounds with opportunities –we must be proactive in taking advantage of our location, particularly near Albury / Wodonga and to a lesser extent Wagga Wagga, to grow an economy that is diverse and offers our community the chance to build a career here.

Our Community Values

A country lifestyle: residents are committed to retaining an environment known for its scenery and spaciousness, where the hills, pasture and crops and natural bushland combine to create a relaxing and tranquil way of life.
A caring community: there is a deep appreciation that we have a Shire that is a great place to raise a family. This is only possible because of our friendliness and consideration for each other. And whilst each village and town has its own identity, there is nevertheless a sense of belonging throughout the Shire.
A volunteering mentality: our passion for the community is exemplified by our “can-do” spirit; traditionally, we have fought for what we want, rather than relying on layers of government to always provide.

An affordable but high quality of life: our country lifestyle does not constrain us from being close to excellent schools, health and aged care services, sporting and recreational facilities, shops and museums. This is available without having the higher costs of city living.
