A vision is an agreed aspiration – or a common goal - about what communities would like to see for the future of our city. A vision is not much use if it is not acted upon.
Tauranga City is pulling all its strategies and plans together so you can see how the vision will be realised – and/or if there are any gaps. This is called the strategic framework project.
Tauranga Moana City Vision
Over the last few years, we have heard from many parts of our community that we need a vision for Tauranga Moana.
Recently, we have asked our communities about their values and hopes for the future through the My Tauranga Vibe campaign. Through this process, we now better understand what people value for themselves, their whanau, their communities, and the city they live in.
Prior to My Tauranga Vibe we involved a diverse range of community sectors including iwi and hapū, social services, tourism, community, and businesses and gathered additional insight from what our community told us through the Long Term Plan process and Vital Updates.
Collectively, this work has enabled us to hear the many aspirations, priorities, and challenges for our city.
The next stage of this project is to pull this all together to develop a city vision, that will be meaningful for the people of Tauranga Moana and all those working to make our city better.
Most importantly, we hope it resonates with our rangatahi – our young people who will be the leaders of Tauranga, tomorrow.
A City Vision will be adopted early in the new year.
