Whitsunday Regional Council is working with the Bowen Lions to develop a historic signage trail along Queens Beach Esplanade, and is asking the community for their ideas.
The signage trail is planned for the Queens Beach Esplanade, with signs placed roughly every 50m between Mt Nutt Road and Yasso Point.
The signage could show historic stories and iconic events from Bowen’s history, or even feature local heroes and famous residents.
Mayor Andrew Willcox said the signage trail would be an exciting addition to the planned walkway upgrades along Queens Beach Esplanade.
“The Bowen Lions have been working with us to make this project a reality, and we are looking forward to hearing from the community with their suggestions for the signs,” he said.
“We have Works for Queensland funding to upgrade the walking and cycling network in this area, and believe the signage trail will be the icing on the cake.”
Consultation on the signage opened last Friday and will close 5pm, Friday 8 December 2017.
To submit ideas and suggestions for the trail, visit Council’s online consultation website Your Say Whitsunday at http://yoursay.whitsundayrc.qld.gov.au/bowen-signage-trail
Council staff will also be manning public displays to receive ideas during the consultation period:
• 9am to 1pm, Friday 24 November – Gideon Pott Park, Queens Beach
• 9am to 1pm, Wednesday 29 November – Centre Point Plaza
Residents can also submit their suggestions in person at the Bowen Customer Service Centre.
