Our vision of Motueka is a town which:
- Inspires and connects with people the moment they arrive and makes them want to stay.
- Encourages its young people to stay, or to return after study or travel, by making the town attractive and rewarding for young people to base their adult lives.
- Takes full advantage of its outstanding location, climate, environment and fertility - a 'town within a garden'.
- Has a thriving business sector fostered by the support of residents for local businesses and employment.
- Expresses the beauty of nature and tells its stories through its streetscapes, public art and sculpture, walkways, gardens and trees.
- Encourages residents to connect with and care for each other, share their skills, and take part in community activities.
- Values elders for their experience and community dedication, and encourages and energises young people in their education and growth.
- Has the resilience and self-sufficiency to remain a strong community in the face of global problems in economics and the environment.
