Have your say on Emerald playgrounds
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.
