Swan Hill Town Hall PACC – colour scheme

Council has received funding to repair cracks and repaint the exterior of the Swan Hill Town Hall PACC – as part of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program.
As part of this work Council is seeking community input to determine a preferred heritage colour scheme.
Following a review and a detailed report from a heritage advisor – we have two colour scheme options, which will both preserve the building and complement its heritage status.
Based on the heritage advice a preferred option has been suggested – however, we are seek the communities input!
Please help us by completing the quick poll online at: https://letstalk.swanhill.vic.gov.au/
