City seeks feedback on draft concept for Central Mall streetscape enhancements
Central Mall is set to be upgraded as part of the proposed streetscape improvements under the Kalamunda Activity Centre Plan. At the Special Council Meeting on Tuesday 30 June 2020, Council adopted the 2020/2021 Budget, which included a $2.4 million commitment for upgrades in the Kalamunda Town Centre, which incorporates detail designs of a new streetscape for Central Mall.
Commencement of the project will make the start of the 10-year vision for the Kalamunda Town Centre coming to life.
Mayor Margaret Thomas said, “This has been an incredible journey of consulting with the community to develop the Activity Centre Plan we have today, and it is a big achievement for everyone involved to see our vision starting to come to fruition”.
“The vision of the plan is for Central Mall to be transformed into the heart of Kalamunda’s night time economy, delivering an intimate and vibrant urban experience that supports both day and night-time activities and acts as a counterpoint to the more traditional and heritage spaces of the town centre.”
The City has engaged consultancy PLACE Laboratory to undertake the design and documentation for the Central Mall upgrade in the Kalamunda Town Centre.
“The design has been developed, following all of the community input to date and now the City is now seeking feedback from landowners, businesses and residents on the draft concept plan. I encourage all members of the community to have their say.”
Community can provide their feedback by taking the online survey at engage.kalamunda.wa.gov.au/central-mall. Hard copies of the survey will also be available at all City libraries and Administration.
The City will be hosting two workshops to explain the plan and get detailed feedback on the draft design concept. All interested community members are invited to attend. The Online Workshop is being held on Friday 30 October 2020 starting at 10am to 12pm. The online workshop will be hosted via Microsoft Teams. You can register your place by completing the form at engage.kalamunda.wa.gov.au/central-mall. Registrations close 29 October 2020 and an email with the meeting link and instructions will be sent prior to the meeting.
A Community Workshop is being held on Wednesday 4 November 2020 starting at 5pm to 7pm at Kalamunda Agricultural Hall, 48 Canning Road, Kalamunda. All are welcome but due to restrictions on venue capacity, RSVPs are essential.
