The Wodonga 2050 community vision is an opportunity for you to become an active participant in crafting the future of our city.

To kick it off, we hosted a leaders’ lunch, councillor dinner and a half-day community forum in November.

We had 100 people attend across the three events talking about signals, scanning and the future of Wodonga in sessions facilitated by futurist Simon Waller.

Some of the themes of the discussion were on housing, health, education, artificial intelligence, environment, aged care, families, growth and connectivity.

Some of the key highlights.

  • Having 13-year-old poetry slam champion Eve Francis give an opening address which included a poem reminding us to consider a youth’s perspective.
  • Everyone in the room creating a mini-vision.
  • The visual representation of the day’s discussions by Sarah Firth.

Simon shared a quote from Bill Gates about how we overestimate the change that will occur in the short term but underestimate the change of the long-term.

This was an ideal premise to kick off for the launch of our Wodonga 2050 consultation.

From now until Friday, December 15, we’ll be asking the community to share their ideas on how we make Wodonga an even better place to live for all?

In the future I would like Wodonga to implement a noxious weed control. Sadly while walking in the bush I've seen many Acer negundos.

Cycle-ways in city and streets of Albury Wodonga are still old fashioned/planned. Only a fresh coat of paint and planning needed by experts.
