Community participants at a recent community engagement event, held at George Humes Park in November 2017, said that they would like to see more trees, colour, vibrancy within their area.
In response to this the following landscape additions are proposed for around the Willagee shops:
- Planting of new trees - in key locations, bringing added shade, colour and seasonal change
- Tree support project - is a project involving local community to create brightly painted tree stakes to support new trees
- Graphic Bin Project - features print works created by local kids to transform the bins around the shops.
The project scope includes
- Placemaking ideas for the public land between the shops and the road, to fit within a small budget
Funds are available to go toward something that will
- Enhance the area
- Benefit the community and shop owners
- Unify the look of the shops, pulling together 'The Hub', similar to what the bollard project has achieved for the area in front of the shops
- Tie into what is already there (i.e: through the use of material, colour, etc.)
