In 2015, Council in consultation with the Mooroopna community developed concept plans for the landscaping of McLennan Street.
Council engaged Thomson Hay Landscape Architects in the 2018/19 financial year to further develop the concept plans into detailed designs in preparation for construction.
The original concept landscaping design divided the area to be developed into eight blocks, with detailed designs having now been undertaken for blocks 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and 8 Stage 1. It is anticipated that construction for blocks 1, 2, 6 and 8 Stage 1 will occur in the 2019/2020 financial year.
The Mooroopna War Memorial will be updated to include digi-glass panels to recognise the many service men and women who served our country in the conflicts beyond World War One.
Lighting will be installed and new pathways will be created, this will enhance the ambience of the space and allow the memorial to be accessible and safe for all users.
Detailed designs and construction for the remaining blocks will be undertaken as budget becomes available.
