Improved Eumundi pathway to benefit all

Eumundi’s littlest locals and keen market visitors will be able to take a step in the right direction towards free play and supporting homegrown businesses thanks to an upgraded Council pathway in the heart of the town.

Division 10 Councillor David Law said the $10,000 path upgrade at Lonergan Lane included a new coloured concrete pathway plus minor landscaping works that everyone in the community could now enjoy.

“We are pleased to deliver this upgrade that will benefit marketgoers and stallholders,” Cr Law said.

“I’m really pleased to see the markets have reopened which is great for the local economy.

“On non-market days, children and their parents can also utilise this safe laneway to access the popular Dick Caplick Park playground.

“This pathway was upgraded when the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) caused the temporary closure of the markets.

“I hope these works inspire nearby residents to make use of local pathways and daily exercise without the reliance on personal car transport, which contributes to achieving our vision of being Australia’s most sustainable region, healthy, smart, creative.”  

Eumundi Chamber of Commerce Treasurer John Stone said visitors now wouldn’t have to contend with stormwater or mud on the pathway when it rained in the area.

“[These works] have made such a difference to the amenity and usability of this area,” Mr Stone said.

The project was funded under council’s capital works program.
