2015/16 Community Report Card
One of the biggest challenges local councils face is delivering quality services to meet community expectations. It’s important our community knows how we are performing, and that’s why this is the fourth year we have produced the annual Community Report Card.
The Community Report Card provides a snapshot of what we’ve delivered and gives you some basic facts and figures to help you decide how we’re going as a city.

Community Plan 2011 - 2021
In 2021, our community will be defined by the statement:
Townsville is the northern gateway to Queensland. Our well-built city connects people to their community, via an active lifestyle that is enjoyed by all who live and visit. We are leaders of positive environmental action. We are acclaimed for our business entrepreneurship, government enterprise, innovation, technology and cultural stewardship.
In 2010 we embarked on our largest community engagement process SpeakUp Townsville with more than 7,000 community members provided comments, ideas, and visions on how they would like Townsville to be in the next 10 years and beyond. This community input has formed the bases of Leading, Creating, Connecting: shaping a place to be proud of Townsville Community Plan 2011-2021.
