As a major regional centre we have immediate capacity for growth, where congestion is not a factor, commute times are short, productivity is high and the lifestyle offer is outstanding. We therefore offer a real alternative to the congestion of the major capital cities and can position ourselves to leverage off the opportunities this brings, as well as continuing to improve the lifestyles of our existing community.
Albury Wodonga with growth in both residential and Central Business Areas, is now alive with possibilities and have the potential to identify a point of difference in its future plans and profile. We have the opportunity to play a role in the international arena – and take with it accessible options to our community for growth, investment and visitation.
