Macquarie 2100 is a not-for-profit organisation which works to administer and implement the objectives detailed in a 100 year plan released in 1999.
The Plan was created following several years of community consultation, discussion, workshops and reviews.
It has been recognised at all levels of government as a significant, all-encompassing document that has led to M2100 having an extremely high level of credibility.
The M2100 Plan aims to maintain and build ecologically sustainable, economically viable and socially cohesive communities in the Lower Macquarie Valley encompassing the Warren and Narromine Shire Council areas.
Macquarie 2100 has over 100 core members and a committee of 12 volunteers supported by a part-time paid Executive Officer.
Macquarie 2100 provides the opportunity to create a better future for the lower Macquarie Valley by:
• supporting and encouraging opportunities to enhance the landscape;
• educating, improving and uniting communities;
• increasing the mental, emotional and physical health of the communities;
• striving to create strong economic resilience by supporting local marketing and business development projects.
Throughout the year various community events and on-farm projects are held and our community is kept up-to-date with regular newsletters.
This group works with other organisations and interest groups in the Lower Macquarie Valley, and acts as a conduit of information, and as a partner to obtain funding for community-inspired projects which reflect the aims and objectives of the plan.
Macquarie 2100 provides a strong foundation which allows people to collaborate. It provides the framework funding bodies demand before becoming engaged.
