And along the way, ....  we've had some wins.

The IDTC volunteer  members are proud of the many achievements, an outcome of collaborative and combined efforts of many, benefiting the community in a number of ways.

 Some of the successful initiatives:

  • Eucalyptus Distillery Museum.   A project which took around 6 years, from the early concept discussions when Peter Abbot donated the site to the Shire for community use, until the formal opening in 2011.  IDTC members drove the initial concept, plans and funding strategies with the Loddon Shire.  The shire eventually appointed a S86 committee to manage the site and ongoing development. IDTC also contributed with two  cash grants assisting the completion of the museum facility for tours and the establishment of the retail area operation.  
  • Arts park development
  • Public drinking fountain - 2013
  • Community Hub - participation with the community hub feasibility development activities and the Community Planning submission.
  • Station Redevelopment
  • Adventure park at sports precinct
  • Industrial Park devlopment

Tourism & Marketing

  • Inglewood geographic domain community website.
  • Brooke Street flags, highlighting businesses open for business in a consistent manner for the town.
  • Brooke St. Brochure .      Early discussions on the need of a brochure to further highlight the businesses and attractions of Inglewood.  
  • Blue Plaque Heritage trail, in conjunction with the Historical Society.   A marvellous project identifying the key heritage buildings and sites of the town, be it walking or driving,  using the "audio" CD.
  • Tourism Information Board 2012/3. This project replaced the community directory sign which was seriously outdated.
  • Input to Streetscape project

Community Celebrations

  •  Blue Eucy Festivals
  •  150 Years of Gold, 1859 -2009
  •  Inglewood Alive

Community Planning engagement 

  • Numerous community planning meetings to register, scope, and prioritise identified community projects.  This has been an important function of the IDTC which has assisted many community projects to development.  In conjunction with the Loddon Shire Community Planning team.
  • Participation with the planning for the Railway Station redevelopment. (in progress 2012/13)
