Pub­lic to have say on precinct art­works

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

The City of Kar­ratha will in­cor­po­rate com­mu­nity feed­back into its fi­nal de­ci­sion on the ma­jor pub­lic art­works to be in­stalled at the Kar­ratha Arts and Com­mu­nity Precinct.

Coun­cil­lors are con­sid­er­ing de­signs for pub­lic art­works in two dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions; one on the stair­case in the main foyer and an­other on the planned am­phithe­atre shade struc­ture, and have now short-listed the orig­i­nal 12 de­sign op­tions down to three for each lo­ca­tion.

At last week’s coun­cil meet­ing, coun­cil­lor Mar­garet Bertling sug­gested com­mu­nity mem­bers had a chance to assess the art­work ideas be­fore the fi­nal vote.

It was de­cided com­mu­nity mem­bers should have the chance to view and have their say on the short-listed de­signs, which will be fac­tored into the coun­cil’s fi­nal de­ci­sion.

The coun­cil is still ex­plor­ing how com­mu­nity feed­back will be pro­vided, with the most likely op­tions be­ing ei­ther through an on­line sur­vey or pub­lic show­case of de­signs.

The fi­nal de­ci­sion will be made in Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber this year.

Con­struc­tion is pre­dicted to be com­pleted by March, 2018.
