Imagine Monash in2040 

What will Monash in 2040 be like? What do you want to keep the same, and what would you like to change?

Council is working on Image Monash 3040 – a huge project that imagines the possibilities for Monash 20 years into the future and sets our vision and priorities.

Over the next few months, the Council will be asking our listeners for your ideas, thoughts and aspirations to shape the future of Monash.  Council would love to hear from anyone who lives, works, studies or runs a business in or visits the City of Monash.

Your feedback will guide the Council as they plan the Community Vision, our next Council plan and long-term plans for managing the assets and finances through as Financial Plan and Asset Management Plan.

Your view is important to this vision of a future Monash. Be part of the future, and share your views with us by Hard copies of the survey will be available at Civic Centre 293 Springvale Rd Glen Waverley, Oakleigh Service Centre 1A Atherton Rd.
