Mount Alexander Shire Council is reminding businesses and building owners in the Maldon town centre to make sure they have a say on a town improvement project.

Council recently sent a survey to those within the project boundary to assess their opinion on a range of topics such as undergrounding power, co-funding models and shopfront improvement options.

The findings will help inform a business case for the Maldon Town Centre Streetscape and Shopfront Improvement Project which aims to revitalise the historic town.

Council’s Economy and Culture Manager David Leathem thanked everyone who has already submitted a response.

“We want to give every business and building owner in the project area the chance to have their say on this initiative and have extended the deadline until Friday 26 July,” said Mr Leathem.

Last year, Council received funding from Regional Development Victoria to match its own financial contribution to develop a business case to determine the viability and economic benefits of restoring the streetscape in the Maldon town centre.

“Results from the survey will provide a valuable contribution to the business case and help push for government investment so we encourage everyone in the project area to complete the survey,” said Mr Leathem.

If you need another copy, or did not receive a survey in the mail, please contact Eva Parkin, Economic Development Officer, on e.parkin@mountalexander.vic.gov.au or 5471 1805.
