New township entry sign installed for Maldon
Maldon's new township entry sign features the Mt Tarrengower Lookout Tower and was chosen by locals following community consultation.
Over 30 ideas were received in the first stage of consultation which called for residents to suggest iconic Maldon images that would work well as a silhouette. Examples suggested were the Beehive Mine Chimney, an historic shopfront, local flora and fauna, and the Mt Tarrengower Lookout Tower.
Council then presented two options back to the community: an historic shopfront and Mt Tarrengower Tower.
Over 250 locals took the poll with nearly 70% of voters choosing Tarrengower Tower.
The final result is a township entry sign that reflects Maldon’s unique heritage that the whole community can be proud of.
