The community is being asked to help shape the future of Mandurah’s city centre as the City of Mandurah kicks off the next phase of making it a reality.
The recent completion of the Eastern Foreshore’s seawall, extended grassed area and path connections, and the Mandurah Bridge Replacement, now paves the way for the community to shape the re-energisation of the city centre’s waterfront areas.
Community members and stakeholders will play an important role in identifying and developing upgrade priorities for the city centre waterfront.
The City is asking the community to guide the vision by sharing their thoughts about what people love about the areas now, and suggestions on what they want to see in these areas.
To assist with shaping the vision, the foreshore areas have been divided into zones, each with unique existing character, activities and opportunities that the community can have their say on until May 18.
Mayor Rhys Williams has shared his passion for Mandurah’s city centre since being elected in October and said the local community played an important role in ensuring a strong and re-energised future for Mandurah.
“Mandurah is such a special place and this really is an exciting time of growth for our community,” he said.
“It’s important that we continue on this journey together, to ensure we have a culturally enriched, vibrant city that people want to be part of, to ensure our economy is strong and that people have jobs, and that visitors want to come and see what we have to offer.
“So now is the time to have your say – help shape our story to ensure a strong and re-energised future for Mandurah.”
The final output of this consultation will be Mandurah waterfront designs that incorporate the community’s input while taking into consideration land use, built and natural form, environment and movement.
A Community Reference Group will also be established to engage the community and capture input from diverse groups, ensuring that the vision, aspirations and objectives expressed are representative of community views.
