Three-year plan to fund Coast body

THE Fraser Coast Regional Council has adopted a three-year agreement to help fund Fraser Coast Opportunities.

Fraser Coast Mayor Gerard O'Connell said the council would contribute the $1.65 million it allocated to economic development, events, marketing, visitor information centre management and tourism.

"The council will also contribute $500,000 a year for three years to help the entity establish itself," Cr O'Connell said.

He said the three-year agreement was adopted at the council's ordinary meeting last week.

"The agreement formalises our proposal to fund Fraser Coast Opportunities which will drive economic development, tourism, marketing and events on the Fraser Coast."

Fraser Coast Opportunities, headed up by general manager David Spear, is funded by council and the former Tourism Fraser Coast.

He said the organisation was developing sponsorship deals with Fraser Coast industry groups to fund its marketing, events and economic development activities.
