After a years-long community campaign the Morrison Government will invest over $4 million to help transform Lurline Street in Katoomba into a tree-lined boulevard. Treeline Lurline will set the benchmark for improvements, beautification and building cultural tourism in Katoomba and the Blue Mountains.

The Treeline Lurline working group was successful in their application under the Katoomba Chamber’s auspice, achieving $4m funding toward the tree planting, power undergrounding and whole-of-precinct upgrade of Lurline Street.
The Chamber acknowledges and thanks the volunteer working group including architect and landscape architect Ron Powell; consulting arborist Jessica Lawn; writer, editor and horticulturist Kerry Brown; accountant and tourism operator Mark Jarvis; administrator Stephanie Moxham; Gundungurra and Darug elder and retired nurse Aunty Carol Cooper; retired Fair Trading Commissioner Rod Stowe; solicitor Andrew White; writer, artist and educator Lowell Tarling; Ward 1 Councillor Kevin Schreiber, tourism operators Jenny and Paul McLaughlin; and artist and educator Pennie Steele. We also acknowledge the other professionals who gave generously of their time and expertise to help scope and cost the project including architect Josh Allen; planner Brad Carmady; architect and landscape architect Oi Choong; planner and landscape architect Hamish Dounan; hydraulic engineer Mark Liebman; quantity surveyor Matt Turner and architectural illustrator and watercolourist David Wardman.
Thank you also to Bendigo Community Bank Katoomba for sponsorship of $10,000 to assist with the electrical engineering services."
