Members of the Tawonga community are asked to share their views on which of four possible options they prefer for the current Tawonga Scout Hall site

Alpine Shire Council has purchased the ageing building, which is in such poor condition that it is not viable for renovation.

Following a decision at the April Council Meeting the hall will be demolished to make way for one of four key concepts to support community use of the space.

Alpine Shire Mayor Sarah Nicholas called on community members to share their views on which design option they prefer by completing a quick online survey.

“The four designs all offer different solutions for the Scout Hall space,” she said.

“We want to know what the Tawonga community thinks – whether they would prefer parkland, new community building with parking, relocated playing courts or a pump track circuit.

“We are also welcoming any other ideas and feedback on the Scout Hall site and how best to tie it in with the rest of the Alpine Better Places concept design work.”

The survey is now open, and will close at 5pm on Thursday, 26 May.

A public community meeting will be held with the project consultants and Council project staff on Thursday, 19 May to discuss the options and gather feedback.

Cr Nicholas encouraged the community to make the most of the opportunity to learn more and share their views face-to-face.

“Feedback and survey results will be used to refine the final proposed concept and make any changes to the plans,” she said.

“We will return to the community in July to confirm that those changes meet their needs.

“We’re committed to providing as many opportunities as possible for the community to have their say, to ensure the final result is something we can all be proud of.”
