The third Post about Plaques in Particular Places!

On 21 September 2009, the Stirling Terrace Upgrade Project was offcially opened. The project included new paving for footpaths, improved road drainage and underground power.

‘News from our Shire’ in the Toodyay Herald (Oct. 2009, p.20) reported: “State & Federal parliamentarians, Councillors from Toodyay and neighbouring Shires, Council staff, local business owners and Toodyay District High School students were all present on Monday 21 September 2009 for the official opening of the Stirling Terrace Upgrade Project.
At a cost of $3.25 million, this has been the largest single construction project undertaken by the Shire of Toodyay to date.
Shire President, Cr Charlie Wroth gave the assembled guests a brief history of the town and told of his pride in being involved with such a progressive community. He thanked all those who contributed to the success of the project; especially the Shire’s outside workforce and senior management staff. Local businessman and President of the Toodyay Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Mr Mike Knowles
thanked the Shire outside workforce for the high standard of work and for the courtesy shown towards local business owners, especially in their efforts to minimise disruptions during business hours.”
