The title TEAM Harden Shire was identified at a stakeholder workshop with the acronym of TEAM standing for Together Everyone Achieves More. A strategic plan was then developed to pull all the stakeholders together under one 'umbrella' plan, with Council, businesses and community working together as a team towards a strategically-planned future direction.
The TEAM Harden Committee consists of Councillors who represent different areas in the shire and representatives of Council, Chamber of Commerce, Harden Shire Community Action Inc., Bendigo Bank, Kruger Trust, local businesses, community groups and property owners. A wide range of actions were compiled in the strategic plan for each town and village under the following key result area headings:
- Shire Tourism and Marketing Development
- Business Development
- Physical Development
- Events and Social Development
Community Vision Strategic Action Plan 2010
The TEAM Harden Shire Board will oversee the implementation of this action plan. The Board consists of Councillors who represent different areas in the shire and are also representatives of Council, Chamber of Commerce, Harden Shire Community Action Inc., Bendigo Bank, Kruger Trust, local businesses, community groups and property owners.
Initially the Board will meet on a regular basis to kick-start the program and the first round of projects and then on a 'needs only' basis throughout the year. Progress of projects will be reported to Council and to the community via the local newspaper. At the end of each year, the Board will meet to evaluate progress measured against the plan and identify actions to be implemented in the following year.
