Vision, Outcomes and Strategies

For the outcome of this project click here.


To help tackle some of the issues affecting Adelaide's future, and to support the great ideas received through Picture Adelaide, we developed a draft vision and future outcomes for the City of Adelaide. We also developed strategies to work out how we'll get there.


The next stage of consultation will occur in 2012, where your comments, ideas and suggestions will be reflected in Council's draft Strategic Plan 2012 - 2016.
