Vision 2020

Vision 2020 is a community focus and action group. It is a little bit like a Chamber of Commerce. A little bit like a Progress Association. A little bit like a lobby group and a little bit like a think tank.

Its simple theme is REGENERATION – taking the best of the past and blending it with the best of the new.

It has broad interests ~ Agriculture, Commerce, Tourism, Education, Health, and Environment.
It aims high, but keeps its feet on the ground and views all things with 20/20 vision.
….and anyone can be a member.

It is open to thinkers, doers, helpers, supporters, even critics, and it is set on achieving the best possible results in every project it undertakes. It is intent on giving assistance and guidance, encouraging Bingara and District to survive and thrive as it progresses towards the year 2020.

Dare to Dream

Dare to Dream

In 2005 the community of Bingara & District started on a journey – to create a Vision for Bingara in the future – in the year 2020. This journey involved the whole community and the ideas that formed the Vision were generated entirely from within the community.

A Vision is sometimes associated with something unreal or imaginary; a creation of fancy. However, in this case its definition is “To Dream”.  We cannot know or predict the future with any certainty, but we can work towards creating the future that we “want”.

The Bingara & District Community chose to become recognised as a national leader in Regenerative living. Regeneration is a way of life and continues to be fundamental to all our decisions.

We do not just sustain our resource base – we continue to improve and to grow. Our people are healthier, happier and better educated, our environment is pristine, our buildings and community infrastructure are well designed and energy and water efficient, our agriculture has healthy soils and “treads lightly on the land”.

Our VISION for Bingara and District for the year 2020 has been created by the whole community. It seeks to inspire and embrace everybody.

Our VISION seeks to build on the strengths of the town and district in 2005, and to preserve and enhance those things our community values.

Our VISION is built around the theme of ‘REGENERATION’. It details the future of each major asset – our people, our infrastructure and our environment.

Our VISION aims to take Bingara and District residents on a journey into the future.

To share this journey, we have taken a ride to the Bingara of our future – to the year 2020.
