THE Jindabyne Beautification Committee is preparing to unveil an iconic structure later this month, which they hope will provide a historical reminder to residents and visitors.

The Committee has been provided with an original chair-lift chair from Thredbo Resort. It currently sits in the Snowy River Men's Shed where it is being refurbished and will be fitted with a commemorative plaque.

Peter Williams from the Beautification Committee is eagerly awaiting its completion.

"The chair is for the public, to remind us of the area we live in," Mr Williams said.

"It will be of interest to tourists, I'd say it is around 40 years old or thereabouts."

Upon completion, the chair is expected to be located near the GP Super Clinic. It will face north towards the lake.

"People can see what was on the Ramshead chairlift section originally," Mr Williams said.

As well as restoring the chair, the committee has a number of plans in place to regenerate Jindabyne.

"We will fix up the section of garden in front of the post office, there are many projects we wish to undertake to improve Jindabyne."

In affiliation with the Snowy River Shire Council, the committee are hopeful the chair is just the start of making Jindabyne even more aesthetically pleasing.
