Build­ing on suc­cess


Stirling Times - - News - Kate Leaver

MANY cam­paigns and busi­nesses have been built on a pow­er­ful catch­phrase and the City of Stir­ling is no dif­fer­ent.

Mayor Gio­vanni Ital­iano (pic­tured) has cham­pi­oned a dif­fer­ent theme for the past three years at each an­nual may­oral break­fast, which con­tin­ues through­out the year.

The Stir­ling Times no­ticed Cr Ital­iano’s en­thu­si­asm and com­mit­ment to his an­nual catch­phrases, spruik­ing them in gen­eral con­ver­sa­tion at ev­ery avail­able op­por­tu­nity.

The first theme, “Open for Busi­ness”, tied in with the de­vel­op­ment of the City, en­cour­ag­ing busi­ness own­ers to set up shop in what he de­scribed as the next CBD.

The fol­low­ing year, “It’s all Hap­pen­ing” was his phrase of choice, re­fer­ring to large con­struc­tion projects in Scar­bor­ough, In­naloo, Kar­rinyup and the “sleep­ing gi­ant” Mirrabooka.

“Af­ter the first year I de­cided to have a theme for each sub­se­quent break­fast, so the sec­ond year the theme was “Open for Busi­ness” in­di­cat­ing to the busi­ness com­mu­nity that the City is re­ally keen to work with our lo­cal busi­nesses,” he said.

This year Cr Ital­iano will launch his new­est theme, “Build­ing on Suc­cess”, cen­tred around de­vel­op­ments at Kar­rinyup Shop­ping Cen­tre and West­field In­naloo about to progress.

“The new State Gov­ern­ment’s elec­tion com­mit­ment to­wards the ex­ten­sion of Stephen­son Av­enue is now some­thing the City can build on in the pro­vi­sion of much­needed in­fra­struc­ture to open the whole precinct up and ad­dress traf­fic con­ges­tion in the area,” he said.
