Local craftspeople developing seating for Euroa streetscape upgrades

A group of talented community members have come together to design outdoor seating in Binney St, Euroa.

As part of the Streetscape Renewal Program, local craftspeople Steve Tobin, Hugh Salmon and Rowan Craven as well as local artist Tank, will come together to create the seating to compliment the garden bed upgrades.

Longwood’s Steve Tobin said they loved creating work for the community.

“We get to see people enjoy whatever we make,” he said.

“We have skin in the game. We want what’s best for our community and bang for our ratepayers’ bucks.”

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Cr Laura Binks said Council was always eager to support local businesspeople and this was a great opportunity to make that happen.

“Council recently updated its Procurement Policy which means that being a local business is one of the factors taken into consideration during tender processes,” Cr Binks said.

“We did this to ensure better outcomes for our local businesses and our economy.”

Cr Binks said it was also fantastic to appoint local architect About Architecture to complete the concept designs for the streetscape renewal program.

“The upgrades to our township’s streets has been a direct result of the work of local businesses and we are pleased to see them taking shape.”

Cr Binks said expressions of interest for working groups in Violet Town and Strathbogie to develop further draft designs.

“We encourage community members to visit Share Strathbogie to register their interest to be a part of these working groups,” she said.
