Street Meet seeks up­grade for Glen Iris

South Western Times - - News -

Play­ground up­grades, land­scap­ing and beau­ti­fi­ca­tion are on the hori­zon for Glen Iris as the fo­cus turns on the sub­urb.

Bun­bury City Coun­cil will kick off its com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion for the sub­urb’s re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion this week­end.

Glen Iris was iden­ti­fied as the next pri­or­ity area by the coun­cil and fol­lows on from work done in Withers and Carey Park.

A Street Meet will be held on Satur­day at Pic­ton Pri­mary School where the com­mu­nity is be­ing en­cour­aged to share what is work­ing in the sub­urb and what can be done bet­ter.

Mayor Gary Brennan said the meet pre­sented the per­fect op­por­tu­nity for residents to share their views on their sub­urb.

“We want to pro­vide residents with an op­por­tu­nity to tell us how the city can en­sure Glen Iris is a safe, friendly and at­trac­tive place to live,” Mr Brennan said.

“Start­ing at street level we will then progress to the big­ger pic­ture im­prove­ments. We will also be pro­vid­ing fur­ther op­por­tu­ni­ties for those com­mu­nity mem­bers who are un­able to at­tend the Street Meet such as our on­line so­cial en­gage­ment por­tal.”

The con­sul­ta­tion project will fo­cus on street level en­hance­ments and could in­clude path­ways, space ac­ti­va­tion, safety and streetscapes.

The coun­cil will launch an­other on­line en­gage­ment por­tal through So­cial Pin­point.

Satur­day’s event runs from 10am to 1pm with cof­fee and ice-cream pro­vided.
