Masters Home Improvement is coming to Taree and Masters is asking Taree residents to help name the new street where the store will be located.
In line with council guidelines * suggested street names should have a maximum length of 10 letters:
* suggested street names must be new (not existing in the Taree area)
* suggested street names must include written documentation (500 words max) to support them eg: a reason for the suggested street name or history of the suggested street name.
* Entrants should also observe appendix 1: Guidelines for naming roads which states that when naming a road and renaming roads and streets, guidelines concerning uniqueness, sources, propriety, communication, spelling, form, road type, prefixes and segments must be observed.
The process of street naming can take up to four months but the council will need three street names by middle of November. Manning River Times and Masters Home Improvement will draw three finalists which will be published in Manning River Times.
The Council will decide the approval and the winner will be announced in the new year. Winner will receive a $1000 Masters Voucher to spend in the Masters Taree store or any other Masters store and will also win VIP entry and status at the official board - cutting ceremony to be held in May/June 2014.
Entries will be judged and three finalists will be chosen based on their suggested street name and 500 word submission. A winner will then be chosen from the final three by Taree City Council.
Entries close Tuesday November 4 at 5pm.
