Project set to take Gladstone into the future

WHAT will Gladstone look like in 2035? That's the question being asked by a project launched on Thursday.

The Gladstone Region Vision 2035 project is aimed to refresh the Gladstone Vision 2028 action plan that was developed seven years ago.

The new project aims to refresh and re-invigorate a collaborative approach to thinking about, and helping create, a shared future for the region. 

The founding partners are Gladstone Regional Council, Rio Tinto Alcan, Gladstone Ports Corporation and Conoco Phillips.

Nine members of the community have volunteered to step up to lead and steer the visioning process.

They will ensure the project and its outcomes reflect broad community concerns and aspirations.

CQUniversity associate vice-chancellor for the Gladstone region, Owen Nevin, has been named as the chairman of the Visioning Committee.

Gladstone residents can participate by completing a survey online.
