Have your say on the vision for the Boulder Tourism Precinct

Published on Friday, 12 August 2022 at 6:28:35 PM

The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is seeking community feedback on visioning plans and concepts for the reinvigoration of Boulder as a tourism precinct.

The City’s Boulder Tourism Precinct Strategy Committee have been working closely with project consultants H&H Architects to create a refreshed vision for Boulder.

This vision aims to re-activate Boulder as a tourism precinct, further developing its vibrant local economy and community through an array of recreational, cultural, commercial, and tourism opportunities. 

To date, ideas gathered from the Committee have ranged from the installation of drinking fountains on Burt Street to the establishment of a Great Boulder Mine Experience.

Mayor John Bowler said consultants H&H Architects have been working alongside the Committee and key stakeholders to develop initial visionary concept plans for the project and are now seeking the community’s input.

“The plans will be on display for the community to view during this Saturday’s Boulder 125th Anniversary celebrations at the Boulder Town Hall,” Mayor Bowler said.

“I am proud to be opening the Remembering Boulder 125th Exhibition which will highlight Boulder’s past and I hope that everyone that comes along also takes the opportunity to have their say about Boulder’s future.”

“Once the consultation process is completed, the Boulder Tourism Precinct Vision Master Plan will be finalised and advanced for final consideration of the Committee. This will also include an action plan to guide future consideration of key infrastructure projects and other related initiatives,” he said.

The Committee, comprising of six City Councillors including the Mayor and four community members, have been working on developing a vision for Boulder since it was first established in October 2021.

The community is invited to view the plans and complete a short survey, at the Boulder Town Hall on Saturday, 13 August 2022 from 1.00pm to 3.00 pm.  City Officers will be available to provide a background on elements of the project and answer questions.

The plans and survey are also available on the City’s community consultation website, closing on 10 September 2022 –www.ckbunearthed.com.au
