Street Meet seeks upgrade for Glen Iris
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.
