On Friday 9 November 2018, Adelaide Hills Council, the Gumeracha Main Street Project, and Jensen PLUS were collectively awarded the 'Public Engagement and Community Planning' award by the SA Planning Institute.
The award, which recognises the hard work being done on this community-led project, is a testament to the people committed to making a change in their community.
"The Gumeracha Main Street Project group is an exceptional, smart, hard working group of residents and business owners, and I think we will always be proud of the authentic effort we have put into community engagement and consultation." Said Chelsea Lewis of the Gumeracha Main Street Project.
"This award really shows how community and Council can work together and be productive and positive, and we look forward to that relationship continuing."
