Your say on streetscapes

More greenery, street trees and improved seating are some of the ideas the Strathbogie Shire community is sharing to improve streetscapes in the area.

Strathbogie Shire Council is now working on plans to renew and improve streetscapes in Avenel, Euroa, Longwood, Strathbogie and Violet Town after funding was allocated in the 20201/21 Budget.

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor, Cr Chris Raeburn, encouraged locals to visit Council’s online engagement platform to share their thoughts on areas for improvement, along with the project’s objectives and key themes.

Areas for improvement may include but are not limited to:

  • town entry features
  • street furniture
  • planting
  • pedestrian and/or traffic circulation and safety
  • public art
  • lighting
  • general wayfinding, and
  • signage.

“For Council this work is significant,” Cr Raeburn said.

“Effective streetscape design is an integral part of shaping a community’s identity, increasing civic pride and improving a sense of well-being and belonging.

“We understand the importance of this to our community. Most importantly we want our community to be part of the process.”

Council has engaged About Architecture to create the streetscape plans. About Architecture is a regional based practice creating flexible, perceptive and enduring architecture for people and places.

Initial feedback will be received until Friday, July 30, 2021. After this Council will release draft design for the next stage of community input.

“We expect to do this in early August, and you will be able to have your say on or attend a feedback session which we will have face-to-face coronavirus restrictions permitting,” he said.
