Maryvale residents will take part in the second phase of public consultation on the Maryvale Urban Design Study to provide feedback on the blueprint for the community’s future until Friday 24 August.

Southern Downs Regional Council (SDRC) will engage the Maryvale community to have their say on final recommendations made by JFP Urban Design Consultants following an initial public consultation in May.

At its July General Meeting, Council resolved to receive the Maryvale Urban Design Study and to undertake community consultation relating to recommendations made in the report. Four interconnected projects were identified based on feedback gathered during community consultation in May regarding the direction of the Maryvale Urban Design Framework.

The four priority projects identified include enhancing the town centre, connecting the pub precinct with Maryvale Park, improving the visual amenity of Maryvale’s nightsoil lanes and planting colourful, flowering trees.

SDRC will now seek community feedback on the four priority projects, which form part of the overall vision to enhance and build on the existing character of Maryvale as an attractive place to live, work and visit. A copy of the updated Maryvale Urban Design Project will be available for viewing on Council’s website and Maryvale residents are invited to complete an online survey and make submissions to Council either in writing or online.

Council encourages all residents to share their ideas and provide feedback on Maryvale’s future. Complete the survey or have your say on the Maryvale Urban Design Framework by visiting the SDRC website, or call 1300 MY SDRC (1300 697 372).
