About the project
Council is working with the Tawonga community to prepare plans which illustrate, cost and prioritise:
- Improved streetscape treatment of the Kiewa Valley Highway, including a safer pedestrian connection to Tawonga Pioneer Memorial Park, pedestrian pathways extending along the highway and integrated landscape treatments to give the Tawonga township an improved sense of destination.
- Improvements to Tawonga Pioneer Memorial Park, including upgraded and additional facilities and infrastructure.
February 2023 | Final Concept Designs adopted by Council
Following significant input from the local community, final concept designs for the Alpine Better Places Tawonga project were adopted by Council at the December Ordinary Meeting.
Council would like to thank the Tawonga community for being actively involved in providing ideas and feedback throughout the duration of the project.
The project originally commenced in March 2020, with the goal of designing concept plans for improved streetscape and the extension of footpaths along the Kiewa Valley Highway, and improvements to Tawonga Pioneer Memorial Park.
The Tawonga Concept Design Plans were developed with a focus on two key areas identified and prioritised by the community in the phase one consultation; create a centralised 'focus' or heart to the township in Pioneer Park, and improve the circulation and safety for pedestrians.
The final concept plans include new open spaces, multipurpose courts, paths, a pump track, upgraded toilets, public seating, additional facilities, extended playspace, car parking and landscaping.
