In July 2014 Adelaide City Council embarked
upon a mission to ask the Adelaide community about what they wanted for the future of
their city. Stories were collected, forums were held and we listened to what you
love about this great city and how you want it to grow and to change as well as
what we must protect and hold onto. Now everything we have heard has been
directly applied to shaping our new Strategic Plan which sets out our vision
for the future of our city. The 2016 to 2020 Strategic Plan is
our vision for Adelaide's growth story whereby Adelaide becomes a smart, green,
liveable and boutique city full of rich experiences. We want to build upon our
city's rich character and heritage. All the things we love about Adelaide but we
also want to see the City of Adelaide thrive and prosper in the future. This Strategic Plan is supported by four key themes: Smart, Green, Liveable and Creative.
Smart is about being a world smart city with a globally connected and
opportunity rich economy. One example of this will be the implementation of smart parking technology to move towards an expiation free environment. Green is about being one of the world's first carbon-neutral cities and being an
international leader in environmental change. One of the things we will do to
achieve this is to form the Carbon Neutral Adelaide Partnership with the State
Liveable is about creating a diverse and welcoming capital city with an enviable lifestyle and strong community. One way we'll achieve this is
by delivering a three-year capital works program to create world-class
infrastructure for the city and for the Park Lands. And Creative is all about
offering a city of authentic and internationally renowned experiences.
A key example of this will be attracting a major international event
and a live music festival to Adelaide in our winter months. We want to know if this is the exciting future that you want for your city.
