Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council is proposing to deliver streetscape improvements for Rosebed Street, Eudlo as part of its Streetscape Capital Works Program. The project team are working with the Eudlo community to help shape the future of Rosebed Street to create a streetscape upgrade that aligns with the values and vision of the community.

Purpose

In November last year council engaged with the community to understand what you love about Rosebed Street and what can be improved. As part of stage 1 community engagement a total 117 surveys and multiple conversations were completed to gain an understanding of what the community loves about Rosebed Street and what can be improved.

Your feedback has helped council develop a Draft Streetscape Concept Plan reflecting the communities shared visions.

Community engagement

The survey data has now been analysed to form a community brief, from which the project team have created a draft Concept Plan for further community feedback.

This is what you’ve told us you would like to improve:

Create safer streets for pedestrians and motorists

  • slow traffic speeds through the center of town
  • improve safety for motorists at the Rosebed and Corlis Street intersection
  • manage where we can safely park.

Create a shady, cool and green street

  • strengthen the surrounding natural beauty in the main street
  • add more shade with new and replacement trees
  • improve garden bed plantings along Rosebed Street.

Create an attractive and appealing walkable environment

  • add vibrancy and interest with elements that enhance Eudlo’s heritage
  • enable more events and community gatherings
  • connect pathways along the streets.

Other feedback

  • ensure community amenities are hygienic and clean
  • improve park facilities in Olsen Mill Park.

Please note that not all these objectives can be achieved within the allocated project budget.

Where to from here

The ideas and feedback received in this first stage of engagement have informed the concept design. Council is asking the community to provide feedback on the proposed concept design. Have Your Say by completing council's survey.

The next stages of engagement are:

  • Stage 2 Engagement - Have we got it right? May 2021. You will be invited to provide feedback on the proposed draft Concept Plan.
  • Stage 3 Engagement - Presenting the Concept Plan, June 2021. The plan will be made available to the community for information.

Overview

Funded through the Streetscape Capital Works Program, council seeks to design and deliver a streetscape upgrade for Rosebed Street through a placemaking process.
