McLennan Street Master Plan

At the Ordinary Council Meeting held on 16 February 2016, Council resolved to release the Draft McLennan Street Mooroopna Master Plan for public comment. The master plan covers the central open space median strip from Echuca Road (West) through to the commencement of the Causeway (East).

The Master Plan was prepared with extensive community consultation involving a project steering committee, individual and group meetings, workshops with key stakeholders and organisations, and online surveys. Pre-draft community feedback led to the vision of: “capture the history of Mooroopna, help shape its identity and help make McLennan Street something the township can be proud of.”
