Stakeholders engaged on Mount Beauty rejuvenation

Alpine Shire Council has continued to engage with Kiewa Valley stakeholders on its plans to rejuvenate the Mount Beauty town centre and lake foreshore.

The council’s Mount Beauty Progressing Place project was presented to the Upper Kiewa Valley Association last week, with similar meetings planned in coming weeks to allow other groups in the area to comment on the plans.

Council officers last week outlined the road design works planned to improve vehicle and pedestrian access to the town centre; landscaping is also planned to improve the amenity of the town centre and lake foreshore area.

Alpine Shire Mayor, Cr Jan Vonarx, said the project aimed to revitalise the CBD and foreshore precincts and improve the overall character of the areas.

“Feedback so far has been positive, and we’re looking forward to unveiling a more vibrant and functional town centre and foreshore when we deliver this project by April 2016,” she said.

Cr Vonarx said proposed landscape upgrades to the town centre and lake foreshore would be further developed over the next month, with public consultation sessions planned for July.

The foreshore improvements will include upgrades to the playground, better parking, new toilets and better access to the lake’s edge.
