Whit­sun­day voices on Queens­land Plan

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY mayor Jen­nifer Whit­ney was part of a del­e­ga­tion rep­re­sent­ing the re­gion at last week’s Queens­land Plan Sum­mit in Bris­bane.

Lo­cal Whit­sun­day busi­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tives Greg McKin­non from Can­non­vale’s Big 4 Ad­ven­ture Re­sort and Michael Brown from Bowen’s Queens Beach Mo- tor Ho­tel ac­com­pa­nied the mayor to con­trib­ute to the 30-year vi­sion for the state.

Cr Whit­ney said at­tend­ing the two-day sum­mit al­lowed the re­gion’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives to be part of the state-wide col­lab­o­ra­tive process to bet­ter the fu­ture of Queens­land.

“As part of the sum­mit we were re­quired to iden­tify our key fo­cus ar­eas, with ed­u­ca­tion, eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment and re­gion­al­i­sa­tion con­sid­ered pri­or­i­ties for the re­gion,” she said.

Cr Whit­ney said the over­all pri­or­i­ties to come out of the plan would “help us to build our com­mu­ni­ties and en­sure Queens­land has a strong eco­nomic out­look”.
