STAGE ONE - Existing crossing renewal

The first stage of the streetscape renewal plan aims to deliver a portion of the project in the immediate term which utilises an existing funding agreement with the Federal government.

Within the 2020/21 budget, the Strathbogie Shire Council approved funding for works to be under taken to renew and improve existing streetscapes within the shire.

This allocation has been supported by a grant from the Federal Government .

Effective streetscape design is an integral part of shaping a community’s identity, increasing civic pride and improving a sense of well-being and belonging. Areas for improvement may include but are not limited to; town entry features, street furniture, planting, pedestrian/traffic circulation and safety, public art , lighting, general wayfinding and signage.

The focus of the study area is the town centre of Euroa, defined by Binney Street.

The study area includes intersections at Brock and Railway Streets.

This document presents a conceptual streetscape renewal plan for the town of Euroa.

The intention of this streetscape renewal plan is to provide a visual guide for future streetscape development, rather than a literal or specific representation of works to be completed.

The recommendations include streetscape projects which can be implemented progressively as well as a palette of

streetscape materials, finishes, fixtures and landscaping recommendations that work to maintain streetscape consistency, improve functionality and amenity and reflect a sense of identity and character for the area.

The project concentrates on the public realm, which includes the components of the streets and footpaths. Building facades are not included.

Water ways envelope and meander around the town and through lo cal park lands. Tree lined streets provide a tranquil and relaxed feel.

Nestled at the base of the Strathbogie Ranges and characterised by its ever present views to Balmattum Hill, the town has constant links to its surrounding environment.

A s Euroa continues to develop, streetscape renewal should reflect and celebrate its surrounds while respecting its historic village atmosphere.
