1. VISION AND OBJECTIVES
The draft Structure Plan presents a vision for the Glen Huntly area in 2036. This vision has been crafted from community feedback and reads:
'Glen Huntly will use Booran Reserve and the emerging cultural offerings to become a new, exciting destination that acts as a focal point for the local community, with a diverse range of retail and hospitality experiences. The centre will be attractive, clean and safe and support pedestrian and cycling access'
Together with presenting a vision, a structure plan is an opportunity to capture the 'story' of Glen Huntly, shared by the community who contributes towards it's development - and an opportunity to ensure that this storyis translated into the way the area looks, feels and functions in the future.
The key aspects of Glen Huntly's story, expressed in the Plan are around it's place as a cultural precinct with:
- diverse people and activities,
- visible street culture and nightlife,
- a historic and unrefined appearance,
- colourful and artistic edge, and familiar, friendly faces.
