How you can find out where Gladstone will be in 20 years

WHERE do the people of Gladstone want their community to be in 2035?

All will be revealed on July 4, following months of community consultation by the committee charged with the plan to draft the future of Gladstone for the next 20 years.

The Vision2035 committee will release its findings at Beach Arts Music (BAM) at The Millennium Esplanade, Tannum Sands.

Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers said the group would have a stand at BAM, and the official release would take place at 4pm.

"We decided BAM would be an ideal place rather than in the council chambers or somewhere else, because the release will be accessible to many more people there," she said.

Vision2035 chairman Owen Nevin said the survey process had been instructive and sometimes surprising.

"I for one was surprised to find that there was a great similarity between the city dwellers and those who lived in the outlying communities," he said. "I had expected that there would be significant differences, so it was interesting to see how coherent their views were."

While Vision2035 looks 20 years forward, Mr Nevin said the document and its contents would be subject to change as the time goes on.

"It's today's vision of what Gladstone will be like in 20 years, but conditions during that 20 years could mean there needs to be a rethink," he said.
