Vision During the development of the Community Strategic Plan a vision for the city’s future was developed and tested within the community.
This vision states:"The community of Wagga is a thriving, innovative, connected and inclusive community on the Murrumbidgee.
The DIAP has also sought to integrate with other Wagga Wagga City Council strategies to ensure the principle of inclusion is embedded in all planning frameworks.
This strategy is considered a level two document within the Integrated Planning and Reporting (IPR) Framework.
This plan is the road map for the next four years, providing a level of action and accountability moving forward.
It is my hope that our leadership in increasing access and strengthening a more inclusive culture will decrease the discrimination faced by people with disabilities and will be an example to lead the way for many other agencies and businesses to follow.
