En­cour­ag­ing and em­brac­ing growth

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Editorial -

News this week of the planned sale of prime land to the east of Yar­ra­wonga is fur­ther ev­i­dence of the town’s pos­i­tive growth po­ten­tial.

The chang­ing shape of Yar­ra­wonga sees devel­op­ment push­ing to­ward the east, with the new med­i­cal cen­tre and in­dus­trial devel­op­ment al­ready draw­ing busi­ness to that side of town.

The avail­abil­ity of more land, zoned for res­i­den­tial devel­op­ment, pro­vides an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue that growth.

The ex­cite­ment and at­trac­tion of new devel­op­ment is ben­e­fi­cial in en­tic­ing new peo­ple – young peo­ple, fam­i­lies and re­tirees – to set­tle lo­cally.

With that comes the po­ten­tial for new busi­nesses and em­ploy­ment and greater op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The chang­ing shape of Yar­ra­wonga is some­thing to be em­braced and en­cour­aged as our com­mu­nity con­tin­ues to grow and of­fer more and more to all who are wel­come to be part of it.
