THE new-look Somerset Regional Council team has completed a tour of the area from Jimna to Fernvale.

The tour took in council assets, major infrastructure projects and community facilities.

Mayor Graeme Lehmann said the two-day initiative highlighted the region’s ongoing growth potential.

“We visited points of interest in Esk, Toogoolawah, Linville, Colinton, Kilcoy, Sandy Creek and Jimna on day one, focusing on things like the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, Kilcoy road upgrades and recovery efforts following last year’s bushfires,” Cr Lehmann said.

“Day two saw the team visit Coominya, Lowood, Fernvale and Somerset Dam, stopping to view projects at Lowood Minden Road, discussing possible plans for Fernvale Sports Park and inspecting various development proposals.

“These are challenging times, and I couldn’t be happier with how the councillors have adapted to the changes associated with COVID-19.

“We have a diverse and engaged team that is committed to representing the Somerset community.”
