Town Motif voting success

Published on 22 September 2020


Voting has finished on the Town Entrance Sign Motif consultation and there was an overwhelming response from the Moira community.

General Manager Community Sally Rice thanked residents on their support for this engagement opportunity and said more than 2,000 votes had been received.

“In addition to this huge number of votes, there were multiple comments submitted, some saying why they voted on a particular motif and what it meant to them, others suggesting an alternative and some general positive comments on this exciting project,” Ms Rice said.

“This new signage builds on the energy and impact of our revitalised logo and reinforces our vision of the shire working together to be a vibrant and prosperous rural community.

“The majority of towns had a motif that was a clear favourite – these are listed below.

“There were a handful of towns, namely Bundalong, Katamatite, Tungamah, Waaia and Wilby, where further consultation and most likely a second vote will happen.

“Stay tuned for further details.

“Congratulations and thank you to everyone who took part in this shire-wide community consultation.

“You will see these icons appear on town entrance signs in coming weeks.”
