Foster Community Association began working quietly and steadily back in 1998, to help make the Foster and Corner Inlet district a better place to live, work and play.
Over the years, our members have championed dozens of initiatives that now enrich our daily lives:
- A refreshed streetscape to help improve the town centre’s visual appeal and infrastructure
- A student decorated rotunda
- Improved visibility at the Toora Road/South Gippsland Highway intersection
- Refurbishment of the ‘Welcome to Foster’ Lyrebird sign
- Completion of Stage I of Foster Station Park
- The upgraded Corner Inlet (Foster North) Scenic Lookout
- Children’s playground at Foster Showgrounds
- Prom Country Farmers’ Market
- A staffed Visitor Information Centre
- Footpaths extended to the hospital, Rail Trail and to Ahern’s
- Disability-friendly footpaths
- Speed limit in town reduced from 60 to 50 kph
- Bridge over Stockyard Creek rebuilt
- Longer library hours
- Expanded network of walking, cycling and riding tracks around Foster
- … and more
Our. current priorities include:
- Nurturing the sustainability of the Foster community
- Stimulating more reasons to visit Foster
- Improving Stockyard Creek
- Removing the provision of plastic bags in Foster
- Improving Foster’s recreational facilities
- Improving the consecutiveness and safety of our footpaths and roads
- Lobbying for improved Council services
Foster Community Association has also taken a lead role in raising awareness of the negative effects of coal seam gas exploration and mining and the implications for our local area.
