COMMERCIAL and residential growth is proving Myrtleford’s appeal is on an upward trend.
Myrtleford Chamber of Commerce president Frank Ivone said the substantial increase in business activity and new homes being built was “only a matter of time”.
“Myrtleford has definitely seen an increase in businesses moving to town and the housing developments in the town are unprecedented,” he said.
“We don’t have enough rentals in town any more, and we have to ask ourselves, why?”
Mr Ivone said the Myrtleford Chamber of Commerce took part in a CSIRO study in 2010-11, which looked at the vision of the town for 2025.
“It took nearly 12 months to complete the study and the end result was that we would see a lot of building happening in Myrtleford in 2025,” he said.
“It also showed there would be a lot of growth commercially as well, it all seems to be happening now more quickly than we realised,” he said.
