Destination Tallangatta - Shopfront Revitalisation and Streetscape Works

TALLANGATTA SHOPFRONT REVISTALISATION PROJECT

In 2015, Towong Shire Council was awarded $1,000,000 from the Australian Government to activate 'Destination Tallangatta'. The purpose of the project was to revitalise and provide economic benefits to the Tallangatta Township, foreshore and Holiday Park, linking recreational, shopping, tourism, health, education and residential precincts.

As part of the project, a portion of funds were budgeted to assist businesses in the CBD upgrade commercial property. A program was developed to detail how shop owners and traders could access the funds and the conditions in doing so. Many businesses took the opportunity to refurbish verandahs, install new signage, or paint. 

Three community engagement sessions were promoted and held to inform the upgrade works. The creation of artwork was identified as an opportunity to further enhance the CBD area for residents and visitors.

Following initial engagement on proposed artworks with building owners and/or tenants of the artwork locations, Council is now seeking feedback on the artwork concepts from the greater Tallangatta community and potential visitors.

There are four artwork concepts for each of the four proposed locations:

  • Artwork 1 'The Town That Moved' - Viking Genetics Building, 53 Towong Street 
  • Artwork 2 'Grow' - Nicola Teek Building, 4 Banool Road
  • Artwork 3 'Intrepid Spirit' - Tallangatta Laundromat Building, 87 Towong Street
  • Artwork 4 'Old Tallangatta' Photo Collection - Tallangatta Hotel, Towong Street 

View all four artwork concepts here.

TOWONG STREET STREETSCAPE WORKS

As part of the broader Destination Tallangatta project, the section of Towong Street between Tooma and Akuna Streets Tallangatta has been upgraded.  The works included road widening to match the pavement width at Tooma and Akuna Streets, the addition of new kerb and gutter to both sides, as well as new stormwater drainage works to the existing open channel.

Works at the intersection of Banool Road and Towong Street have also been completed, including new curb outstands, landscaping, paving, upgrades to footpaths and new crossing points to the Triangles to improve pedestrian safety.

Works are now underway on the eastern and western intersections of Towong Street at both ends of the Triangles. Plans for the works are available to download from this webpage
