Burnie’s divisive rusty entrance markers will be gone by next year.
The Burnie City Council will replace them with funding from the State Government’s City Gateway Programme, which has provided $1.25 million for the project.
The council has narrowed the project down to two proposals, which are currently open for public feedback.
The concept designs, including three-dimensional models, are currently on display at the council chambers in Burnie as well as on the council’s website.
Burnie Mayor Teeny Brumby says the gateway will instantly identify the entrances to Burnie, promote a sense of arrival and celebrate Burnie’s unique identity.
Councillor Brumby says the gateway project will signal the next exciting chapter in Burnie’s story as a step towards creating a new vision for the city’s future, the community and visitors.
Feedback on the design concepts will close next Friday, July 14th.
The new entrance markers are expected to be in place by June next year.
