Murray Shire councillors will vote on whether to allow a lit sign to be built outside a Moama caravan park at today's meeting.TRENT HORNEMAN June 2, 2014 11:00pm
Murray Shire councillors will decide whether to allow a Moama caravan park to have a lit sign at the corner of its premises.
The plans were put before councillors last month, but were deferred to allow further discussion on the sign’s location at Maidens Inn Caravan Park.
A group of residents formally objected to the application, saying the illuminated sign would upset neighbouring residents.
Councillors explored other options for the sign’s location, but the owners remained adamant it was the best location.
Since the matter was last deferred, council has received letters of support from park residents, saying the sign would light up the nearby intersection of Chanter St and Deniliquin St.
Murray Shire environmental services director Simon Arkinstall has recommended councillors approve the application, subject to it meeting a range of conditions.
Councillors will host a community forum from 11.30am to 12.30pm, with council’s ordinary meeting to begin at 1pm.
The forum will allow Bunnaloo residents to talk about the council’s draft strategic community plan and budget.
