ADOPTION OF FUTURE ROAD NAME LIST

12/4/2017

The Shire of Gnowangerup at its March 2017 meeting adopted a list of names for future road names within the Shire.

The Shire wishes to thank the public and organisations that contributed names to the list.

The inclusion of other names to the above list will always remain open to future Councillors to determine and it is expected that the list will remain fluid in nature and continue to change over time.
