Pop in and have your say

Beginning this Thursday Moira Shire staff will be onsite at the Yarrawonga Town Hall to hear ideas and feedback on the current proposals for redeveloping the town hall precinct. 

Moira Shire Mayor Libro Mustica said the sessions were part of a broad community consultation program that will continue into May. 

“This project’s impact on Yarrawonga begins well before you enter a building. It starts with improving the precinct’s street appeal and allowing the beautiful architecture of the town hall to shine,” Cr Mustica said.

“For this reason local retailers, residents and tourism operators are encouraged to share their thoughts as part of this feedback process. 

“Once you leave the footpath and enter the precinct there is host of proposed events, performances and library services that can be delivered within the new facility. 

“To date the design has been largely informed by current users of the library and town hall precinct facilities, so it’s appropriate that we pause the design process while we check in with the broader community. 

“We are asking everyone – young and old, residents and visitors to share their thoughts on whether the mix of services is right for Yarrawonga today and into the future?” 

The drop-in sessions begin 11 am Thursday, April 18 and will continue weekly through to at least mid-May. 

“Look for the yellow umbrella beside the Yarrawonga Town Hall,” said Cr Mustica.
