New beginnings

Happy New Year to everyone in our Division 10. I look forward to getting out and about again in Eumundi in 2021. It’s always a pleasure to meet with people from various businesses, the Chamber of Commerce, schools and committees.

I recently joined the crew at Deadly Espresso, Eumundi, to watch renowned First Nations artist Jandamarra Cadd – a Yorta Yorta and Dja Dja Warung descendent – complete artwork for a table in the café. It was an absolute joy to spend the morning watching him finish the Rainbow Serpent. Check it out next time you’re in town. It’s sure to be a terrific conversation starter.

Eumundi Placemaking update

Thank you to the 261 people who provided feedback to council in October and November last year regarding what you loved about Memorial Drive and what could be improved.

This feedback will help council develop recommendations that will inform a Draft Streetscape Design, which people can then provide further feedback on early this year.

Some feedback included:

Creating a pedestrian-friendly street by improving footpaths, making it safer to cross, slowing traffic and improving wheelchair access;

Creating a cool, shady and green street by adding more street trees and plantings;

Adding vibrancy and interest with public artworks and interpretive elements that showcases First Nations culture.

More information on the community streetscape workshop is coming soon. Keep an eye on council’s website for further updates.
