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

What do you love most about Memorial Drive in Eumundi? Do you think there is anything that can be done to enhance it? The first stage of community engagement seeks to understand your values, ideas and vision for Memorial Drive.

How you can you get involved:

  • Visit Council’s Eumundi Markets stall on Saturday, 31 October (8am to noon).
  • Business owners can attend the local business ideas night at Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Thursday, 5 November (drop in any time between 4pm to 6pm).
  • Come along to the sausage sizzle in the Dick Caplick Park on Sunday, 8 November (10am to 1pm).
  • Complete the online survey from Friday, 23 October to Friday, 20 November.

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.

A draft streetscape design will be presented in early 2021 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.
