Leeton Shire Council resolved its intention to set aside a $15,000 contribution towards the Lyrics, Landscapes and Lintels project to be included in the draft 2017/2021 Delivery Program.
Council was successful in obtaining $84,500 funding under the 2016/17 Heritage Near Me Activation Grants through the Office of Environment and Heritage for a Lyrics, Landscapes and Lintels- Developing Leeton’s Historic Sense of Place-Project which involves the commissioning, design and construction of six (6) civic art heritage stations in Leeton, Yanco and Whitton.
Mayor Cr Paul Maytom said that the proposal is an exciting opportunity for Leeton Shire as it will enable the creation of six pieces of civic art to inspire the community and attract visitation.
“Each heritage station will include a story based on either themes of historic building heritage (lintels), environmental and aboriginal heritage (landscapes) or literature (lyric) history.
Each will be an independent artwork with some sort of connection to encourage extended visitation with the various works to be placed in suitable locations in Leeton with one at Yanco and one in or near Whitton as well.”
Council also resolved at its March Ordinary Council meeting to invite the Leeton CBD Enhancement Committee to act as the Steering Committee for the project.
The Steering Committee will make key recommendations back to Council on the location and content of the heritage stations and the preferred works.
A Project Plan and Community Engagement Plan to ensure key stakeholders are included in the process have been prepared to guide the successful implementation of the project.
