Subjects discussed on the night varied from the latest updated Service Station plans for Gaskill St, a visit from a NSW Business Chamber Representative through to community communications.
It was also reported that the $200 and $300 Christmas Shopping vouchers were claimed and spent in town.
Arthur Falconer spoke about the need to grow membership numbers stating that for the Canowindra Business Chamber and Progress Association to be truly representative of the village they need more members. There are Individual Memberships at $5 and Association Memberships at $30.
“We want to hear from everyone. It is an exciting time with a village master plan underway and an open dialogue with council as to our needs and wants,” said Arthur Falconer CBCPA President.
Brad Byrnes spoke about the plan and how it will link into the Council’s planning cycle impressing on the meeting of the timing of plans and requests to match both the councils schedule and the grant funding cycles. The Association formally thanks Brad for giving up his time to attend and address the meeting.
