Unitywater has unveiled two artwork designs for the Beachmere Water Tower and called on the community to vote for their favourite.

Following consultation in late 2020, the utility worked closely with artists to bring the community’s visions to life.

Unitywater Executive Manager Customer and Community Katherine Gee said each concept reflected the local environment and capture the community appeal of the beachside village.

Design choice

“One design features a vibrant display of coastal wildlife, including a black cockatoo, a pelican and soldier crabs,” Ms Gee said.

“The other is an abstract interpretation of the seaside, incorporating mangroves, scurrying sand crabs and pastel skies.

“Each of these designs offer elements that we feel residents here will resonate with and encourage them all to jump online to cast their vote.

“We intend to reveal the winning design by the end of March.

Anniversary plan

“The Water Tower will then be transformed to coincide with the community’s 150th anniversary celebrations of the naming of the seaside town in May.

“The Beachmere Water Tower will join Unitywater’s other sites on the Community Artwork Trail, which people can already visit.”

Voting will close on March 19.
