Goolwa Submits its Cittaslow Application

On 4 September 2006, the Mayor of Alexandrina Council, Mr Kym McHugh, handed Goolwa's formal application for recognition and acceptance as a Cittaslow, to Dr Simone De Santi, Italian Consul for South Australia. This important event was part of the Alexandrina Council Meeting. It marked the end of the self-assessment phase conducted by members of the Goolwa Cittaslow Working Party, led by Lyn Clark. The application was considered by the International Cittaslow Committee in Orvieto, Italy. Members of this committee visited Goolwa in March 2007. The newly formed Cittaslow Goolwa Inc is undertaking various projects to continue the Cittaslow process of making the town a place where quality of life is important.
