AS works speed ahead on the New England Highway Bypass of Scone, community input is being sought on ways to keep the town vibrant once the project is complete.
Scone Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Upper Hunter Shire Council are inviting local businesses and community members to a public meeting on January 21.
A representative from Transport NSW will deliver an update on the progress and anticipated opening of the bypass.
Council representatives will also provide an update on the Kelly Street Revitalisation project.
The main points for discussion will surround signage and ways to attract people off the bypass, as well as steps required to make Scone a "destination town".
The community is encouraged to bring along their questions and ideas and make their voices heard.
The meeting will be held at the Upper Hunter Shire Council Administration Office in Scone from 6.30pm.
