Crows Nest Mainstreet Levy & Strategic Plan

Note

If you would like to become involved in or find out more about this Streetscape Committee please contact Adam Deutsch, 9936 8100.

 

Background

There have been five successful applications for the continuation of the Crows Nest Mainstreet levy by Council, supported by Crows Nest Mainstreet, so some cycles went for five years, others for three, until the IPART determination in 2013 approved the levy in perpetuity, or until there is no further community support.

There is much detail in what has been achieved however the broad outline of the phases is presented in the table below.

From Council's perspective some of the key milestones and achievements can be read in this document:
