Street Beautification Projects

Sketch of pedestrian crossing

In early 2019, council invited the Central Highlands community to share their thoughts on proposed improvements to the streetscapes of Blackwater, Capella, Emerald and Springsure.

Design workshops and an online survey were used to engage local stakeholders in the design process. This gave our consultants insight into the issues, constraints and cultural identity of each town.

In August 2019, council endorsed the street beautification proposal, which provides a staged plan to enhance livability in the following ways:

  • improve safety where pedestrians interact with traffic
  • improve connectivity and access for people with disabilities
  • increase shade to improve comfort and experience of pedestrians
  • bring "greening" and colour to the streets
  • improve local and visitor experience
  • provide sustainable planting and improved water efficiency
  • improve traffic management and car parking efficiency

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this exciting initiative. Council are currently seeking funding to support the implementation of these projects.
