Our vision is for Fremantle to be recognised as a unique city of cultural and economic significance.
The City of Fremantle has identified a number of themes and values that articulate a clear vision for a vibrant, creative and innovative, diverse and sustainable Fremantle.
These themes and values have been converted into seven key strategic imperatives which will guide the allocation of funds for future projects and initiatives, as we build the city for current and future generations to enjoy.
To achieve its vision the council undertakes to uphold the values of good governance, strong leadership, community engagement, inclusiveness, and to be a proactive organisation.
The seven key strategic imperatives are:
economic development - strengthen Fremantle's economic capacity
urban renewal and integration - provide a great place to live, work and play through growth and renewal
climate change and environmental protection - lead in the provision of environmentally sustainable solutions for the benefit of current and future generations
transport - lead in the provision of environmentally and economically sustainable transport solutions
character - sustain and grow arts and culture and preserve the importance of our social capital, built heritage and history
community and safety - create a community where people feel safe in both private and public spaces
capability- deliver on the achievement of our strategic imperatives through good governance, strong leadership, effective communication and excellence in service delivery.
The City of Fremantle's Strategic Plan 2010-2015 sets out ways in which the organisation will achieve these strategic imperatives.
