Spiire’s Visual Media and Landscape team will be hosting a free session in the Mall on Friday 22 June from 2–5pm. During the session you will be able to experience all four design options using the Oculus Rift VR headset and immerse yourself inside the same 3D model used to create the concept videos on the Council’s website.
A community information session will also be held at 6.00pm on Thursday 21 June at the Think CBD office, Shop 5, Tower Arcade. No RSVP is required, just turn up. This is the same information as presented in previous information sessions.
The four completed design options were endorsed by Council at the May Ordinary Meeting and are open for feedback via a public consultation until 30 June.
The designs have been completed by Spiire and provide four options for a redeveloped Mall including leaving the mall closed, opening it to two way traffic and two options for one way traffic. In all options the Mall would be significantly upgraded and improved.
The consultation opened on Wednesday 16 May and consists of an online survey where participants are asked to describe what they like or dislike about each of the designs. The feedback will be collated and presented to Councillors to assist them in determining the next steps for the Maude Street Mall.
Greater Shepparton Deputy Mayor Cr Seema Abdullah said “I encourage the community to take part in the consultation and complete the survey in order to provide their feedback on this significant project.”
The four concept designs and survey can be found on Council’s website at www.greatershepparton.com.au and are on display at Council’s Welsford Street office as well as the Think CBD Office located at Shop 5 in the Tower Arcade, Maude Street Mall.
