On town entrance
The Southern Grampians Shire is encouraging Hamilton residents to have their say, on a new look town entry statement for Ballarat Road.
Part of stage two of a strategic landscaping project for Hamilton’s town entrances, the public have two options to choose from, as seen at the Hamilton Library.
Council’s Strategic Major Projects Coordinator Daryl Adamson, says the project is about providing a much improved first impression.
“The project has been guided by the vision to strengthen our urban gateways and significantly improve the visibility of our town entrances. The new entry statements aim to create a sense of pride and aspiration for residents and visitors alike,” Mr Adamson said.
“We have received feedback regarding poor presentation of our key entrances to Hamilton, so this project seeks to rectify that issue and, together with the landscaping project, revitalise what is a key streetscape in our town,” Mr Adamson said.
Council have received two designs, from Challis Design, who are specialists in entrance and landscape design, and are now asking for community feedback.
The two designs are both bold statements which aim to celebrate our rural history and merge this with the sense of a modern progressive township.
The designs can be viewed on Council’s website: http://www.sthgrampians.vic.
Feedback on the designs can be provided on Council’s Facebook poll or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The designs can also be viewed in the Greater Hamilton library until July 31 and a representative from Council will be available to discuss the options on Wednesday July 17 from 3–5pm.
