Councillors and staff are attending a two day strategic retreat at Maleny’s Tranquil Park this Thursday and Friday, facilitated by Professor John Martin of La Trobe’s University for Sustainable Regional Communities.
Mayor Bob Abbot said the retreat will look at ways council can do business better, create a vision for the region and prepare the organisation and community for the challenges that lay ahead.
“Everyone is genuinely prepared to take these challenges head on in order to make this Council something the people of the Sunshine Coast can be proud of,” Cr Abbot said.
Discussions on the agenda include social trends, community engagement, environmental issues, leadership and governance and the economic future of the coast region.
