$1,000 Community Grant Competition Details

The Beaufort Street Network has developed a plan for a Better Beaufort Street in cooperation with businesses and the local community. It’s already an exciting and unique place, but it could be even better. It’s not just a plan for the Network. It’s a plan for local businesses and the community. Attracting more people for longer periods is the best way to create a more vibrant, interesting and economically successful place. More information and a copy of the Better Beaufort Action Plan is available from – http://betterbeaufort.com.au/better-beaufort-action-plan/.
