A new look for Mountain Gate

mtg_mural2015The enticing new street mural in Mountain Gate Drive is just one of many initiatives
proposed or in planning to refurbish public open spaces in the Gully.

The mural is part of Knox Council’s Wall-to-Wall Mentoring program and was carried
out by students from Fairhills High School under the direction of artist Andrew Bourke.

Barbara Oehring’s photograph (above), taken recently on a winter afternoon, captures well
the integration of painting and street life.

Other work in progress includes strategic planning for the Upper Ferntree Gully Activity
Centre, the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Ferntree Gully Village and the
completion of Streetscape works in Mountain Gate.

After some delays, work on the Mountain Gate Town Centre is back on track and going well. People are now able to get an idea of how it will look with the smooth concrete in front of the shops and aggregate concrete providing a contrast. We are
still on target for a finish in November.

We would like to encourage people to continue shopping in Mountain Gate and thank them for their patience and understanding!
