Placemaking projects for Aberfeldy, Longwarry North, Modella & Seaview
Community-led placemaking projects will be delivered in Aberfeldy, Longwarry North, Modella and Seaview following Council’s endorsement of the 2020/21 Placemaking Program.
The Placemaking Program allocates $200,000 annually ($50,000 in each town) to smaller rural communities to deliver projects that are at the top of the community’s wish list.
Projects are the direct result of consultation and collaboration with communities to improve liveability, contribute to health, happiness and well-being, and visitor attraction to the towns.
Community members from each town will be invited to participate in two consultation sessions to gather project ideas in December 2020 and January 2021. The delivery method of the sessions will be dependant on the current COVID-19 restrictions and will be tailored to meet the needs of each community.
Following the first consultation session, an online and hard copy survey will be opened to establish the community’s preferred project based on viable suggestions and ideas. Results will be presented to Council for final review at a future meeting.
Council will continue to engage with each community throughout the delivery phase of each project.
Each project will be funded through Council’s 2020/21 Capital Works Program.
The Placemaking Program was introduced by Council as part of the 2017-2021 Council Plan, with a range of projects delivered across rural and remote communities in Baw Baw Shire over the past two years.
