Nagambie’s main street will be buzzing this summer after the completion of the first stage of Nagambie's streetscape.
Member for Euroa and Deputy Leader of The Nationals Steph Ryan said the project has been completed thanks to $500,000 from the previous Liberal-National Coalition Government.
"The project will help build on Nagambie's reputation as a destination to draw more people into town.
“Funding for the streetscape was announced by The Nationals last year from the Coalition’s $1 billion Regional Growth Fund,” Ms Ryan said.
“Labor has since scrapped the fund which has been a real blow to regional Victoria.
"We are fortunate that the streetscape was funded under the Coalition's $1 billion Regional Growth Fund before Labor scrapped the program.
Ms Ryan said Nagambie had faced the challenges brought about by the bypass with great resilience.
“The project has incorporated the town’s icons such as the old water tower, the lake and the Black Caviar statue to make the town a real destination for visitors,” Ms Ryan said.
“The Strathbogie Shire has also contributed $377,000 to the project and done significant work promoting Nagambie as a destination of choice.
“The Nationals supported the Nagambie community in their vision to grow the town.”
