Mor­ley makeover an­swers sur­vey find­ings

Eastern Reporter - - Street Watch - A mu­ral by lo­cal artist Steve Buckle.

WORK to im­prove the streetscape, amenity and func­tion­al­ity of the pedes­trian and café strip is start­ing on Progress Street in Mor­ley.

As part of the up­grade, shade canopy trees will be planted, verge paving will be re­paired and cleaned and retro­fit­ted planter seaters in­stalled.

The makeover will fea­ture a colour­ful mu­ral by lo­cal artist Steve Buckle on the Aussie Home Loan wall at the pocket park com­pleted last week.

Mayor Syl­van Al­bert says the up­grade an­swered com­mu­nity and busi­ness needs.

“A sur­vey of busi­ness own­ers in the Mor­ley Busi­ness Dis­trict pro­vided a snap­shot of needs and chal­lenges. One of the rec­om­men­da­tions was in­creas­ing the amenity of the area to make Mor­ley even more com­pet­i­tive to other ar­eas,” he said.
