THE pieces of the puzzle on how to enhance Leeton’s CBD continue to be put together.
Leeton Shire Council is currently undertaking an enhancement project for the CBD to build on its existing visual appeal and guide future upgrades. Council has received $25,000 in state government funding for the completion of stage one of the project.
It will be led by Griffith-based architect Steven Murray and Garry Murray from RedBelly Landscape Architecture and Urban Design.
Their role will be to use the funding to develop concept plans as a resource to assist with enhancement projects into the future.
CBD enhancement committee chairman George Weston said the project would focus on Pine Avenue, Kurrajong Avenue, Chelmsford Place and Wade Avenue.
It will also take in adjoining thoroughfares and path connections, Mountford Park and the Sycamore Street car park.
“The project will enable a range of fresh ideas to be considered for the CBD with the aim of creating a more attractive, integrated, and vibrant setting bringing greater social and economic benefit to the wider community,” councillor Weston said.
The project will be undertaken over the next four months beginning with site investigations and stakeholder consultation.
Information gathered will inform the preparation of design concepts and a draft enhancement plan that will be placed on public exhibition in mid-November.
Garry Murray will be available from 9am to noon at the Leeton Farmers Market on Saturday to seek feedback.
