Have your say on Emer­ald play­grounds

Central Queensland News - - NEWS -

EMER­ALD lo­cals are in­vited to have their say on pro­posed up­grades to the Vicki Peters Park and Lions Park play­grounds.

Cen­tral High­lands Re­gional Coun­cil launched a feed­back cam­paign this week via the on­line en­gage­ment tool “Have your say” and will hold two face-to-face con­sul­ta­tions in De­cem­ber.

Mayor Kerry Hayes said the parks were a pop­u­lar spot for recre­ational fam­ily time and coun­cil wanted to en­sure that new equip­ment suited peo­ple’s needs.

“Coun­cil has re­ceived con­cept plans for equip­ment up­grades for both play­grounds and now wants to hear what equip­ment peo­ple that use the parks would like to see in­stalled,” he said.

“The up­grades are part of coun­cil’s cap­i­tal project budget with an al­lo­ca­tion of $145,000 for Lions Park and $195,000 for Vicki Peters Park.

“These projects are part of coun­cil’s recre­ation and open space plan that will con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment of well-planned open spa­ces, sport and recre­ation fa­cil­i­ties for the re­gion to 2031,” he said.

Pub­lic in­for­ma­tion ses­sions will be held at the fol­low­ing times:

■ Vicki Peters Park, Ri­fle Range Rd, Emer­ald

Date: Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 5 Time: 5.15pm

■ Lions Park, Cnr Ya­mala and Ruby streets, Emer­ald

Date: Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 6 Time: 5.15pm At­ten­dees are not re­quired to RSVP to the ses­sions. Con­cept plans are avail­able to down­load at the coun­cil’s on­line en­gage­ment hub and feed­back can also be given on­line at havey­our­say.chrc.qld.gov.au.
