Memorial Plaza Upgrade Virtual Plans
Published on 12 October 2020
Federation Council has been successful in receiving a $97,000 Streets as Shared Spaces grant from the NSW Government to update the Memorial Plaza in Corowa.
In conjunction with Federation Youth Council, this space will be transformed from a walk way through to Sanger Street into a Youth friendly space, the whole community can enjoy.
The upgrade will include café style seating at the Sanger Street end, Community notice board upgrade and the addition of a mural wall, lighting upgrade and roof improvements. The update will continue through the Memorial Plaza with updated seating/furniture, drinking fountain, upgraded bins and lighting.
Federation Council Mayor Pat Bourke said, The Federation Youth Council have been planning a space that is inclusive, youth friendly and can be used for community events in Corowa.
“The space concept and design has been developed by Stephen Richmond in consultation with the Federation Youth Council," Mayor Bourke said.
“This project will transform the Memorial plaza space into an inclusive, vibrant and community friendly youth space. The Memorial Plaza upgrade was selected as one of 27 regional Council’s and 14 Councils in Greater Sydney to deliver a total of 48 successful projects, temporary street transformations, cycle ways, pop up parks and rejuvenated public spaces."
Kade Sarte has been engaged to complete the mural work on the internal Memorial Plaza wall that will follow the local and Australian native animal theme with some interactive pieces included around the doorway openings.
Federation Youth Council Mayor Maxim Blockley said this is an important milestone for the Federation Youth Council as this Youth Space will be here all year round for the community to enjoy.
“We are excited to start using this space for the multitude of community events we have been planning," he said.
The project works are expected to commence during November 2020 and completed at the start of 2021.
