Clean Main Street in time for Christmas
In response to strong feedback from Bold Street retailers and community members, the Camden Haven Chamber Committee approved a proposal in July 2019 to contract a professional pressure cleaner to pressure clean the footpaths along Laurieton’s Main Street. The decision followed several attempts by the Chamber committee over the past few years to lobby Port Macquarie-Hastings Council (PMHC) to clean the Main Street footpaths with no avail.
The Committee agreed that, since footpaths had not been cleaned since Bold Street was upgraded and re-opened in February 2009, it was time for action. The Committee have identified the revitalisation of Laurieton Main Street as a key goal in their 2025 Strategic Plan, which will require a combination of short-term, medium-term and long-term projects. The cleaning of Laurieton Main Street is just the first of many projects ear-marked to revitalise our main street.
The Committee made the decision to champion the cleaning of Laurieton Main Street as a way of giving back and saying ‘thank you’ to our members past and present, local businesses and the community. Our contractor completed the pressure cleaning of Laurieton Main Street footpaths in the last week of October. We’re pleased to provide a clean and refreshed main street in preparation for the peak holiday season coming up in December. We are also working with PMHC to have the trees along the Main Street pruned and will be decorating the trees with solar power fairy lights from 1st December to 26th January as a part of our Lighting up Laurieton project that will be launched with a Lighting of the Tree community picnic. Our hope is that a clean, refreshed and vibrant main street will lift spirits, build and strengthen pride in our community and spread festive cheer!
