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.”

TAWONGA and DISTRICT COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
Notice is hereby given that the next meeting of the Tawonga and District Community Association will be held at the TAWONGA HALL on FRIDAY 6th May, 2022 at 6.00pm.
Parks Victoria will be conducting aerial shooting operations on the northern Bogong High Plains and Mt Bogong areas in the Alpine National Park, during the week of 23-27 May, 2022. The intent of the program for this period is to close the majority of the area, as marked on the map attached.
The aim of this program is to reduce deer activity around significant environmental values that are vulnerable to deer impacts, including alpine wetlands.
The areas that will be targeted will be closed. During aerial shooting, you may see helicopters and hear gunshots.
Suitably qualified and experienced contractors have been engaged to deliver the work. They follow all relevant legislation, Codes of Practice and Standard Operating Procedures to ensure that high standards of animal welfare are maintained during operations.
