Have your say on Camp Reserve Master Plan - now closed

Mount Alexander Shire Council is developing a master plan for Camp Reserve.

The draft plan has been developed by sport and recreation experts in consultation with the reserve’s Committee of Management which is made up of user groups.

The master plan aims to strike the right balance between keeping historic features and traditions while bringing the major sports facility up to modern day standards.

Once finalised, the plan will provide the direction for improvements over the next 10 years and will play an important role in helping Council to secure funding for the upgrades.

Community feedback is now closed. Council will consider the outcomes of the consultation at a future Council Meeting.

Maldon Streetscape Restoration Project

Council received funding from Regional Development Victoria to develop a business case for the Maldon Streetscape Restoration project.

The project has three elements:
- Placing power underground in the central business district
- Implement the streetscape improvement plan
- Restoration of shopfronts.

The business case will provide costings, identify the likely economic impact, expected return on investment and propose a funding model.

Council is a member of the Maldon Streetscape Reference Group and will work with urban designers and economists on the business case. Property and business owners in the centre of Maldon will be contacted in coming months to determine their level of support for the key projects.

We expect the business case will be completed by August. The results will inform the future of the project and priorities. The following steps include completing further detailed designs and sourcing funding for the significant investment needed for construction.

The project is a great example of council working directly with community, business and state government representatives.
To discuss this project please contact Eva Parkin, Economic Development Officer, at e.parkin@mountalexander.vic.gov.au.
