Community urged to comment on Yeppoon Foreshore Designs
MEMBER for Keppel Brittany Lauga is urging the community to have input into the exciting new designs for the next stage of the $53 million Yeppoon Foreshore and Town Centre Revitalisation.
The local MP said an Open Day on November 16 would feature detailed sketches and concepts of the lagoon pool, boardwalk, upgraded amphitheatre and proposed pedestrian bridge across Fig Tree Creek.
"The Yeppoon Foreshore and Town Centre Revitalisation (Stages 3, 4 & 5) is a $53 million project, with a significant investment from the Palaszczuk Government contributing $29 million, the Australian Government contributing $10 million and Livingstone Shire Council contributing $14 million," Mrs Lauga said.
"As well as offering a wonderful facility for our beautiful foreshore, this project will also drive jobs and growth for the region - something I have been passionately working towards and something we all so desperately want."
Mrs Lauga said the revitalisation was vital to current and future residents and urged people to put the date of Wednesday, November 16 in their diaries.
"The Foreshore Redevelopment will transform our city and boost our ability to attract more tourists and businesses back to our stunning region," she said.
