Focus Groups

  • Main Street
  • Tidy Town
  • Christmas In Glen

What we are doing?
Every main street has a key role to play in every town across the Australia. Often “Main Street” serves as the focal point for business and cultural activities for municipalities and their residentss. Parades, farmer’s markets, and economic activities frequent these stretches of road or town squares and draw in curious travellers and tourists from other areas.

Glen Innes is no exception to that condition.

Who’s Involved?
Local Glen Innes businesses leaders have formed a focus group to partner with Glen Severn Shire Council with the vision of continuing on from the main street beautification project to maintain and improve it’s use over the coming years. With the recent upgrades to main street almost complete, we are in an ideal position to attract new business and attention to this historic and beautiful town.

What are the main issues you tackle?
The Tidy Towns Focus Group will continue to work on the beautification and maintenance of the Highway entrances to Glen Innes as our main project.  This will complement a range of other initiatives with a key focus on waste reduction through reusing and recycling for everyone in the community.

How often do you get together and how?
Tidy Town Focus Group is working towards a bi-annual event to care and tidy up the four main highway entrances to Glen Innes. Glen Innes Tidy Town Focus Group is currently working in partnership with council and businesses to develop community business standards and action strategies regarding maintenance and renewal of existing advertising boards and roadside flora.

How do other people get involved?
The Focus Group is developing a calendar of events and activities which will be advertised in the Glen Innes Examiner (local bi-weekly newspaper) and on the BIG website.

We would like to setup a focus group that is mainly tasked with finding a way to make Christmas In Glen a wonderful and joyous time that all our local and extended families can enjoy participating in.
