Narrabri Shire Council is backing Boggabri in its bid to draw more tourists to the small town.
The council will act a sponsor for the Boggabri Business and Community Progress Association's streetscape project, which aims to revamp the CBD through unique art installations and signage.
Staff aided the association's sub-committee, Boggabri Workshop, in applying for $200,000 in state funding in March and is offering "project management expertise".
"The project has the potential to create prosperity and opportunity to the community of Boggabri," council's tourism manager Penny Jobling said.
"Council is supportive of the Boggabri community in their pursuit of integrating public art into the CBD streetscape to enhance the surrounds and encourage visitors and tourists to stop and shop in Boggabri.
"So far council has assisted the streetscape project committee in establishing a project plan to assist the committee in identifying the purpose and projected outcomes."
Ms Jobling said the project aligns with the council's destination management plan, which "lists actions to drive tourism and economic growth in Boggabri and surrounding shire areas".
The tourism manager said the council would do community consultation in the new financial year to "develop tourism strategies and actions for the Boggabri region".
"Council has been successful in partnering with Boggabri Drovers' Campfire and Destination NSW and has received over $80,000 in funding for marketing and promotion of the event," Ms Jobling said.
"Other actions and strategies for the Boggabri region include bird and fishing trails, working with the community to promote events such as the Boggabri Spring Fair, the Boggabri Arts Shed and the newly established Tractor Shed."
