Eumundi placemaking - Memorial Drive streetscape project

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

Planning is underway for streetscape improvements in Eumundi and Sunshine Coast Council is calling on the community to have their say and share valuable local knowledge.

Purpose

Council is proposing to deliver streetscape improvements in Memorial Drive Eumundi as part of its Streetscape Capital Works Program.

The streetscape project will seek ideas and feedback from the community to develop recommendations for the design of the streetscape, and priorities for its improvement.

Community engagement Stage 1 Values and Vision

In October and November this year we engaged with the Eumundi community to understand what you love about Memorial Drive and what can be improved.

As part of the engagement, a total of 261 people had their say to create a shared vision for the street.

The community were invited to have their say at a number of engagement events including a sausage sizzle in Dick Caplick park, business ideas night, Eumundi Market stall and online survey.

Feedback received is helping us develop recommendations that will inform a Draft Streetscape Design which you will be able to provide further feedback on early next year.

A community streetscape workshop is also proposed to take place in March 2021 where the community can provide further input to shape the streetscape design. More information about upcoming engagement is coming soon.

What you have told us so far


Where to from here

Your feedback will be used to form recommendations about:

  • Ways in which the street can be improved through streetscaping
  • The types of streetscape elements that are desired
  • The area/s of the street where improvements could be focused
  • The special aspects of the street that should be cherished and preserved
  • The desired look and feel of the street.

There is still time to have your say

A community streetscape workshop is proposed to take place in March 2021 where the community can provide further input to shape the streetscape design.

A draft streetscape design will be presented in early 2021 as part of Stage 2 ‘Have we got it right’ with an opportunity for the community to provide further feedback.

Final designs will be produced for these streetscape improvements, with construction anticipated to occur in the 2021-22 financial year.

Overview

Placemaking is an approach to engaging and collaborating with communities to create meaningful and vibrant places that reflect their values.

A placemaking approach to improving Eumundi’s main street, Memorial Drive, is an opportunity to involve the community in thinking about how its function, character and identity can be enhanced into the future to support Eumundi as a local place and destination.
