Plan feed­back

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Ber­ri­gan Shire is call­ing on Ber­ri­gan and Ba­rooga res­i­dents to have their say on their re­spec­tive town’s mas­ter­plan.

The shire has been work­ing on the mas­ter­plans for the past 18 months with the con­sul­ta­tion of in­di­vid­u­als, lo­cal busi­ness own­ers, Ba­rooga Ad­vance­ment Group and Ber­ri­gan and District De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion.

The plans pri­ori­tise five projects to im­prove the gen­eral streetscape of each town, in­clud­ing town en­try signs, tree plant­ing, pro­vid­ing truck rest stops, up­grades to parks in Ber­ri­gan, fore­shore and Ver­mont St de­vel­op­ments in Ba­rooga and build­ing more foot­paths in Ber­ri­gan.

‘‘Com­ments are open to the shire, not just Ber­ri­gan and Ba­rooga res­i­dents, but we pre­fer to have more feed­back from those ar­eas,’’ shire gen­eral man­ager Rowan Perkins said.

Res­i­dents are asked to write, email or fax the shire with their com­ments.

The mas­ter­plans will be voted on by the coun­cil at next month’s meet­ing and can be viewed on the Ber­ri­gan Shire web­site or at coun­cil of­fices un­til May 29.
