Outcomes of the Strathbogie Shire Ordinary Council Meeting hold the promise of major economic growth and development opportunities for the region.
One of the biggest items that came out of the meeting was the extension to the shire offices complex to house a new Visitor Information Centre.
Alongside this were options brought forward for development to the Nagambie Toilet Block at the central median strip on High St.
Council endorsed the recommendations to begin community consultation for the toilet block and the Visitor Information Centre, as well as consulting with relevant Council advisory groups and stakeholders for consideration.
A major theme put forward in the meeting was Council’s desire to consult with the community before making final decisions on key items, particularly those that will be key facilities for the community.
Mayor Amanda McClaren said this is all part of being a more open and transparent Council, which are key values supporting their Council Plan.
‘‘We want to hear from our community about their views on the direction for these development proposals before making a final decision,’’ she said.
The consultation sessions for the community will be taking place in coming months, and specific details will be provided at a later date.
