Activate Orange

a new blue-print for

Orange’s economic future.

Orange City’s ActivateOrange Strategic Vision focuses on how our City will operate and support economic and employment growth, over the next 20 years. This Vision is the first stage of once-in-a-lifetime regional transformation that will activate Orange’s endowments and competitive advantages, enabling it to be the Powerhouse of Inland NSW.

The ActivateOrange Strategic Vision aligns with the NSW Government’s Economic Vision for NSW and builds on the strategies identified in the Regional Economic Development Strategy (REDs) that was undertaken by AgEcon Plus Consulting in 2018 for the Functional Economic Region of Orange, Blayney and Cabonne.
