Major Review of Hume Horizons 2040

Hume Horizons 2040 is Hume City's long term community plan. This plan has been guiding the direction of Hume City for the past eight years, and is scheduled for a major review.

We asked for community feedback on the impact Hume Horizons 2040 has had over this time.

In the discussion forum we asked the community to answer these questions:

  • What positive changes you have seen in Hume?
  • What challenges do you see in Hume?
  • What would you like to have seen change over the past eight years, that hasn't?

People could also take a Quick poll to tell us which Hume Horizons theme was most important to them.

This is the first stage in a larger project to develop a Community Vision and Community Plan for Hume City.
