The Glenwood Community plan sets a vision and direction for the future of our community. Developed by the people of our community and driven by a key representative planning group, the foundation of the plan is built on the principle of asset-based community development in enacting community led change.
The community plan is not just a document for the Glenwood Community, it is important in sharing the community's voice, vision and aspiration to key stakeholders involved in the development of our town, social and community services, and for all levels of government.
In developing the draft plan, we identified key community stakeholders, community strengths and weaknesses and looked at how these related to the values we hold as a community, what we feel is important to us as a community, and what we envisage the community looking and feeling like. Through this analysis we identified three key pillars that form the foundation of the community plan, associated themes and identified actions.
The pillars identified are:
The plan focuses on development over a 20-year period; however, it is identified that the plan is a living document. With the forecasted growth in our population as identified in the Population section of this document, it is understood that this plan will need to be reviewed and updated on a regular basis in keeping with the changing needs of our community.
