Future Geelong Map

Designing Geelong's best future

Future Geelong Map

The Committee for Geelong are proud to launch the Future Geelong Interactive map. The map is the final outcome of the Future Geeong Project, a project by our members – for our members.

Geelong has no shortage of plans, visions, and strategies. The big ideas, the city-shaping projects are well known.

We have captured this in the Future Geelong Map – a platform that brings all these ideas together. The map paints a complete picture of how we will move around, where we will live, what jobs there will be, and how we will play.

 Existing projects are combined with approved concepts and plans, aspirational projects, and case study examples.

The Future Geelong Map is not a static report; the map will continue to evolve and be updated with new information, new ideas, and new aspirations for Geelong – and we welcome collaboration.

We invite you to explore the map:

Committee for Geelong Annual Leadership Award

Since 2010, the Committee for Geelong has awarded the Annual Leadership Award to a leader of significance in our community. The inaugural Annual Leadership Award that year was bestowed upon Frank Costa AO,  for his services to the Geelong community.

The Annual Leadership Award was renamed the Frank Costa Annual Leadership Award  in 2021, in recognition of Frank Costa’s legacy and leadership in the Geelong community and remembers him as one of the Committee for Geelong’s founders 20 years ago. Mr Costa sadly passed away in May 2021.

The 2022 Frank Costa Leadership Award was presented to Wadawurrung woman Corrina Eccles at the Committee for Geelong’s International Women’s Day Breakfast on Wednesday 8th March 2022.
