Boroondara is home to unique neighbourhoods, heritage buildings, shopping precincts and green spaces treasured by our community. Placemaking recognises the uniqueness of such places and uses short and long-term interventions to build on their existing qualities.
We are embarking on a new way of improving our public places in Boroondara. This approach is called placemaking, and it’s all about creating places for people to stay, play and belong. Through placemaking, we want to:
- improve social interaction
- create thriving local economies
- contribute positively to the environment
- enhance our community’s quality of life.
We know that local communities make public places vibrant. People who live, work and regularly spend time in a place have a connection to that particular place.
We will work collaboratively with the community to co-design places that are vibrant and memorable, places where people feel a sense of belonging. Placemaking recognises our community as the champions, whose contribution and ownership are essential in the process.
