Cohuna Waterfront Connection Project feedback closes 26 February
Published on 19 February 2021
Residents have until 5pm Friday, 26 February to provide feedback on the proposed design of the Cohuna Waterfront Connection Project, which will create better linkages between Garden Park and King George Street.
The project, part of the $3.4 million Cohuna CBD and Waterfront Connections project, aims to connect the Cohuna Central Business District to Gunbower Creek and works currently underway at Apex Park.
“Council thanks residents who have already provided feedback on this proposed design, which was developed following extensive engagement with community groups,” Gannawarra Shire Council Chief Executive Officer, Tom O’Reilly said.
“This feedback has resulted in a strong emphasis of a precinct connecting Cohuna’s central business district to Garden Park and Gunbower Creek.”
The proposed design highlights the growing popularity of outdoor dining areas, with extra seating placed around the current location of the town’s clock tower.
Other features that the community wished to include in these works were the installation of more power outlets to support festivals and markets within Garden Park, as well as uniformed, modern park furniture and increased seating along the banks of Gunbower Creek.
“All feedback received will assist with the project’s final design, with works to occur during 2021 and 2022,” Mr O’Reilly said.
