The Ideal Community – Our Shared Vision

Our Vision of the Ideal Community:

The people of Monaghan live amongst friends. We have sufficient resources to meet our needs and have access to the services and facilities we need in order to enjoy a good standard of life. Everyone in the community is valued, and we look out for each other, especially our vulnerable members. We all pull together, with the aim of creating a better place for ourselves and the next generation.

The following values help us in attaining this vision:

  • Everyone is welcome
  • Everyone is entitled to be treated equally and with kindness
  • Those who can, should help those who can’t
  • Everyone has something to offer, and everyone should offer what they can
  • Ní neart go cur le chéile (together we are stronger)

We will reach our vision by working to ensure:

  • Local services and facilities are maintained and enhanced
  • Our local heritage and culture are promoted and protected
  • Nobody becomes isolated in our community, that our community connections are strong
  • Everyone has access to employment which gives them purpose
  • Innovation is nurtured
  • Everyone feels that they belong, and that they have a part to play in our community
  • Our physical environment is managed for the benefit of all, including wildlife and future generations
  • Everyone has the opportunity to have a say in the decisions which affect their lives
