Members of the community have just a few days left to have their say about the design of the Wool Bay and Minlacowie water tank murals.
Yorke Peninsula Council staff have been consulting with the community through online surveys as well as a drop-in session at Minlaton on Monday, June 27.
The water tank and associated shed at Wool Bay, located near the town golf club, as well as the Minlacowie tank, located between Yorketown and Minlaton, will become part of the SYP Water Tower/Tank Mural Trail.
This project has been funded through Phase 3 of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
“Council is excited to expand the SYP Water Tower/Tank Mural Trail with amazing murals already at Yorketown, Port Vincent, Stansbury, Coobowie and Edithburgh,” Mayor Darren Braund said.
“We have received a great response to our online surveys and look forward to translating these ideas into works of art.
“Council values input and we know these murals will attract visitors and be something the community will be proud of.”
Community consultation closed at 5pm on Friday, July 8.
About the SYP Water Tower/Tank Mural Trail
Port Vincent was the first town to initiate a water tower mural after Port Vincent Progress Association received $54,000 through the federal government’s Rural and Regional Renewal’s Tackling Tough Times Together program in June 2020.
Yorke Peninsula Council, in partnership with Yorke Peninsula Tourism and the Coobowie, Edithburgh, Stansbury and Yorketown Progress Associations, was then successful in gaining funding for through the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grant program.
This program aimed to assist the economic recovery of regions affected by the 2019 bushfires through art projects.
This funding supported the SYP Water Tower Mural Trail project, which helped create stunning murals on the SA Water-owned water towers in Edithburgh, Stansbury and Yorketown and the water tank and shed in Coobowie.
