Our Future Melbourne jury members came together on Saturday 18 June to work on the Future Melbourne 2026 plan.

The group started the morning by reviewing the online submissions received throughout the engagement period and taking another look at the five vision statements they prepared in their first session.

The jury members then began the tough task of condensing all of this information into one overarching vision statement.

After some deliberation the group agreed on a final vision statement. The next step for jurors was to review the existing Future Melbourne goals and determine what new goals needed to be included in the 2026 plan.

The jury decided to meet again next Saturday for an additional three hours to finalise the plan. At this session they will review and agree on their final plan.

The refreshed Future Melbourne 2026 plan will be presented to the Ambassadors who will review and consider any changes before they commend it to Council in August.
