Beachmere Water Tower is to be transformed under Unitywater’s Community Artwork Program, which has already completed six major projects in the Moreton Bay Region.
The water tower design, decided in consultation with the community, comes in the year Beachmere celebrated the 150th anniversary of the naming of the town.
Unitywater Executive Manager Customer and Community Katherine Gee said the community said it wanted the tower to be painted.
“We’re thrilled Beachmere is our next project, and, like our other artworks, we will ensure this one reflects the values of the local area,” she said.
“This year has been challenging for many, and we understand some of the Beachmere 150-year naming celebrations have had to be postponed due to COVID-19.
“It’s good timing that we’ll be delivering this project in the same year as this milestone for the town.
“This is the 17th mural as part of Unitywater’s Community Artwork Program and we’ve just begun the planning for this community piece.”
Ms Gee said the community would be encouraged to share their ideas when the consultation process opened in October 2020.
