Ararat Rural City residents will have an opportunity to provide feedback about plans to further develop the Alexandra Oval and gardens precinct.
A project development group is driving the outcome.
The group was established in June and comprises representatives of Ararat Eagles Football Netball Club, Ararat Football Netball Club, Grampians Cricket Association, East Grampians Health Service and Ararat Rural City Council officers.
Last month Land Design Partnership won the tender to develop plans, which included linking existing paths from Alexandra Gardens to Alexandra Oval Community Centre, along with internal and external Olver Grandstand upgrades and relocation of the netball courts.
Ararat Rural City Mayor Glenda Mclean said engagement and wider consultation from all user groups would form the next stage of process.
“All representatives on the project development group have been working very hard on the scope of the project, and what they have come up with so far looks fantastic,” she said.
“We have already seen in recent years what upgrading Alexandra Gardens and Alexandra Oval has done for the community.
“Groups such as Ararat Park Run have capitalised on these upgrades and we want to further increase the use of this wonderful space.”
Cr Mclean said council staff were finalising a paper and online survey to give community members an opportunity to have their say about the scope of the redevelopment.
She said more information would be available in the coming weeks.
