Monument Hill landscaping
Monument Hill, at the western end of Dean Street, is one Albury’s most-visited destinations.
The World War One memorial sits atop of the hill which provides stunning views of the region. A number of site issues have been identified by the community and the RSL. To address those issues, a master plan was developed and endorsed by council in February 2017. The master plan provides a long term strategy for improvements at the site.
AlburyCity has allocated $500,000 in its 2018-19 Draft budget to undertake this work. In addition council has been successful in acquiring $300,000 through the Stronger Country Communities Fund towards stage 1 improvements.
The project will involve landscaping and implementation of key priorities including:
- Upgrade roadways
- Upgrade of CCTV cameras
- Upgrade of lighting and power for events (particularly ANZAC Day)
- Upgrade of park fixtures and furniture (picnic tables & drinking fountain)
- Landscaping around the memorial
- Retaining wall replacement
