A video animation of the Meninya Street Precinct Project has been developed by Murray River Council to encourage further feedback from the community.
The Meninya Street Precinct Project is one of Murray River Council’s largest projects that aims to transform the heart of Moama into a vibrant precinct to drive a multitude of economic investment and support a night-time economy.
Delivered in a staged approach, the multi-year project will enhance not only Meninya Street but compliment the surrounding points of interest including the Horseshoe Lagoon, Moama Beach and the local bush area.
Before commencing the formal civil design of the streetscape, the project team and the advisory committee opted to develop a 3D Video Animation, which included community feedback to date to provide the community with an enhanced experience that replicates what the project could look like once completed.
The feedback from the animation will form the second stage of public engagement on the designs following extensive consultation on the 2-dimensional concept plans in July and August last year.
Mayor Chris Bilkey said the animation gives a realistic visual of the potential streetscape enhancements and provides further insight into the concept plans.
“The video animation gives a new perspective on the proposed road, shared pathway, dedicated bike lane, median strip and landscaping designs, as well as street furniture and potential parking arrangements within the road reserve.”
“It also includes possible building opportunities including multi-storey shop-top examples and other exciting retail or commercial development opportunities ready for investors, such as rooftop bars and eateries.”
Council is now seeking further feedback from the community and businesses on the animation so that any refinements can be reflected into the civil designs prior to construction.
The video is available for viewing on councils Your Say site with feedback closing 5 March 2023.
“The animation really does highlight the possibilities of Meninya Street and showcases a contemporary streetscape that is safe for all users and will continue to support, attract and grow the strong tourism economy into Moama, complementing what Echuca has to offer,” Cr Bilkey said.
“We are now encouraging interested community members and businesses to take a look to see if they agree!”
