Our Vision Story

Our history is steeped in pioneers that have left a very clear imprint on the landscape of the Shire of Kalamunda. The foothills and the hills over the past 40 years to a large extent have been overlooked by development but this era is about to change. By the Year 2023:-

  • Our people live in harmony in diverse, healthy and connected communities.
  • We celebrate our rich cultural creativity and the heritage that defines us.
  • Our town centres are being revitalised and are distinctive and inviting.
  • Our residential areas are safe and built with quality.
  • We have protected and enhanced the remnant bushland responsibly for future generations to enjoy.
  • Our local economy is strong and offers a wide range of employment choice and access to education opportunities for all those wishing to acquire skills.
  • We have learned to use all our resources wisely, we always listen to our community and we lead openly and ethically.
  • We have a deeply engrained progressive attitude to all we do and we will build infrastructure that is state of the art.
  • We are a sought after eco-tourism destination and our small businesses are thriving.
  • We are all proud to be citizens of Kalamunda.
