What do you love most about Memorial Drive in Eumundi? Do you think there is anything that can be done to enhance it?
Planning is underway for streetscape improvements and Sunshine Coast Council is calling on the community to have your say and share valuable local knowledge.
Division 10 Councillor David Law urged the community to get involved and help shape Eumundi’s future.
“This is an exciting time for residents, business owners and community groups to work in partnership with council to determine what changes to Memorial Drive could strengthen Eumundi as a destination and encourage more investment in arts, events and shop front improvements,” Cr Law said.
“This placemaking project involves the community in the design and management of public spaces to help create a ‘sense of place’, or unique identity, for your town.
“There are a variety of ways you can have your say. Please don’t miss this important opportunity to get involved.
“An online survey is now open until Friday 20 November. There will be a stall at the Eumundi Markets on Saturday 31 October (8am to noon), a local business ideas night at Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Thursday 5 November (4pm to 6pm) and a sausage sizzle in the Dick Caplick Park on Sunday 8 November (10am to 1pm).”
Cr Law said once council had gathered feedback, further community consultation would be undertaken in early 2021 to share streetscape concept designs and ask ‘Have we got it right?’.
“Once the placemaking process is complete, council will continue to work closely with the community to bring a shared vision to life.
“Final designs will be produced for these streetscape improvements, with construction anticipated to occur in the 2021-22 financial year.”
