WEDNESDAY 22 AUGUST
STUDY TOUR QUEANBEYAN-PALERANG REGIONAL COUNCIL
Board the bus at 0900 for this tour hosted by council CEO, Peter Tegart.
This study tour will showcase how to build investor confidence and change residents’ perceptions of your regional centre. The council's Transformation Strategy brings together the ambitions of placemaking, movement corridors and smart cities to digitally and physically connect people and green spaces in CBD precincts.
The LGA is growing at 2% per year with one house a day built and occupied. One of the shining lights is the new suburb of Googong. Built near Googong Dam, the town is designed to be self-sustainable and is home to more than 16,000 residents. The tour will take you through the key steps and how the Council has transformed Queanbeyan into the city we see today.
Morning tea will be provided before returning at 1230 to the Rex Hotel for guests' own lunch arrangements.
