15 August 2017
The Steering Committee is pleased to advise that Michael Smith and Associates Landscape Architecture and Urban Design has been engaged to undertake the long-awaited Feasibility Study.
The Victorian Government, Colac-Otway Shire, Otway Coast Committee, Apollo Bay Chamber of Commerce and the Skenes Creek Advancement Association are all contributing towards this project. The Steering Committee particularly acknowledges and thanks Colac-Otway Shire for its expert assistance in tendering for a consultant.
Michael Smith and Associates has undertaken a large number of trail feasibility and design projects throughout Victoria. Project managers Michael Smith and Gianina Lopez will lead a multi-discipline consulting team to assess cultural heritage, ecological and environmental issues; prepare economic, business, community facility and architectural plans; undertake stakeholder consultations; investigate engineering, geomorphological, geotechnical and future maintenance challenges; and prepare detailed cost estimates.
Following our most recent conversation with the team leaders, we are anticipating the team will commence on-site assessments and stakeholder discussions in early to mid-September.
