Investigations begin for Sarina CBD revitalisation

A drone survey of Sarina has been scheduled for March 15 and 16.

Council is investigating refurbishment options for the Sarina CBD.

The drone footage will be used to record parking demand within the survey area to better cater for the requirements of motorists as part of the Sarina Town Centre Revitalisation Project.

Cr Karen May said council was working to finalise the design and determine construction costs for the revitalisation project.

“The next stage of this project is to finalise the concept design and determine how it can be delivered in terms of timing, stages and funding opportunities across all levels of government,” she said.

“The concept plans seek to maintain the local character of the area while addressing some of the primary concerns identified in the consultation.

“These concerns were related to safety and noise, creating wider footpath areas separated from traffic lanes, giving opportunity for more enjoyment in the town and providing the catalyst for further revitalisation.

“The drone survey will monitor on-street parking in the CBD area and two off-street parking locations to ensure this project meets the demand for parking in Sarina both now and into the future.”
