We’ll be discussing this and how the community can help make Huonville even better in 2021. One of the approaches is to form a Town Team – a group of local residents, landowners and businesses working together to improve their place.

There are already 54 teams around Australia and Huonville would be the perfect pilot location for the next team, with opportunities for Town Teams to form in other locations around the Valley in 2021!

The Town Team model brings businesses and residents together to share ideas and work collaboratively to improve their local area, with the support of the council.

The Town Team approach is inclusive, creative and fun, with opportunities to connect with town teams in neighbouring areas. You can read more about it on the Town Team Movement website.

February 2021

Following the successful initial stage of engagement with the community we are now hosting two interactive and fun community events to discuss how local people and business can help make Huonville even better.

Come along and enjoy some food, meet new people and let’s make it happen. Both sessions are similar, so you can choose which time suits you best.

Registration is essential and can be done by going to Eventbrite.
