We are calling on local creatives to submit a piece of artwork for the Euroa Pool Glazed Brick Mural Competition, with entries open until Monday 21st October.

The competition is being conducted by Euroa Action Group, with the support of a community grant from Strathbogie Shire Council, to bring some colour and life to the Euroa Pool.

The winner of the competition will have their design on permanent display, tiled with glazed bricks from Euroa Clay Products on the pump house wall at the Euroa Swimming Pool.

Euroa Action Group member, Melinda Watson said she hopes this will be the first of many glazed brick art features in Euroa.

“The mural competition is something I have wanted to do for a while to bring some life and colour to a boring, outdated wall at our pool and give our local community ownership of the project,” Mrs Watson explained.

“The glazed bricks are a really great and colourful medium that we can make into a fantastic feature.”

The mural promises to be a wonderful feature, with Euroa Clay Products producing glazed bricks in 72 different colours, creating fantastic glazed brick features on a variety of buildings across Australia.

Strathbogie Shire Council last month adopted its Sustainable Strathbogie 2030 Strategy, a comprehensive blueprint for its planning and operations on climate, lowering carbon emissions, water security, biodiversity, waste reduction and an active and connected shire.

Council staff undertook comprehensive research and analysis over a period of nearly two years to complete the strategy prior to community consultation, liaising with local and national specialists, and creating a firm action plan for the next three years, with a flexible action plan beyond to 2030.

The specialist reports include:

  • A comprehensive analysis of each township’s urban forest with future options to increase canopy cover;
  • An analysis of the shire’s existing rural green infrastructure values, and options for landholders to benefit from engaging in agroforestry and carbon-related ventures;
  • An examination of shire-wide greenhouse gas emissions and inventory of where they come from;
  • A report on Science Derived Targets for Greenhouse Gas Emissions;
  • An analysis of fuelling Council’s fleet into the future.

Cr Kate Stothers, Chair of Council’s Environment and Sustainable Development Advisory Committee who attended the Strategy’s February community consultation in Euroa, said it is exciting to see we have a comprehensive, strategic plan when it comes to climate change, environment and sustainability actions.

“We held surveys, online forums and drop-in sessions to get feedback from the community, and Sustainable Strathbogie 2030 quickly became one of the most significantly subscribed consultations Council has undertaken,” Cr Stothers explained.

"This really told us that current climate and environmental conditions are a priority of the community, and residents want Council to reflect that in its planning and decision-making.”

Users of the Lake Nagambie and Goulburn River will have the opportunity to have input into the upcoming speed limit and zoning review of the waterways.

Strathbogie Shire Council, in conjunction with Goulburn Murray Water and Maritime Safety Victoria, has made the decision to undertake a review and is currently advertising to get a consultant on board to manage the project.

The review will include the opportunity for community to have their say, with consultation anticipated to take place around December 2019.

Nagambie Lakes Ward Councillor, Debra Bower said the speed limit and zoning review is greatly needed to ensure the ongoing safety of users.

“We have seen a significant boom in tourism and development in Nagambie in the last decade and our waterways have come under ever increasing pressure from the number of vessels, both powered and non-powered sharing the waterways, causing a number of serious safety concerns for our community and visitors,” Cr Bower explained.

“The increasing number of people using the waterways means that we are facing new challenges regarding how we manage safety for users, meet demand for access to the water, share the use of waterways responsibly and plan for sustainable growth.”
