Council Smart Trees community consultation

Closing date: 20 Nov 2020

The Council’s Smart Trees project is an inte­grat­ed park man­age­ment and mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem, which has been in devel­op­ment since 2018. Coun­cil is seek­ing the com­mu­ni­ty views on sug­gest­ed designs, please vote and/​or pro­vide com­ment on the con­cept draw­ings below.

Designed to look like a tree, in pro­vid­ing both shade and aes­thet­ics, this piece of com­mu­ni­ty infra­struc­ture pro­vides real time data and intel­li­gence to Coun­cil to enable bet­ter man­age­ment of pub­lic spaces. For exam­ple, the tree can feed back infor­ma­tion on park usage data, water effi­cien­cy and secu­ri­ty or CCTV aspects, as well as pro­vid­ing WIFI and hub abil­i­ty for pub­lic use.

Project part­ners include Alice Springs Town Coun­cil, Com­mon­wealth Gov­ern­ment and Ekisti­ca (as project con­sul­tants). This is (approx.) $1million dol­lars project fund­ed by the Com­mon­wealth and Council.

A basic pro­to­type has been installed at Frank McEl­lis­ter park, this pro­to­type is not the final design for the trees how­ev­er will pro­vide Coun­cil with valu­able infor­ma­tion towards the next stage of devel­op­ment and expan­sion of the trees across the com­mu­ni­ty. Coun­cil is seek­ing com­mu­ni­ty feed­back on the con­cept design as below.

Please select a pre­ferred design con­cept images — 1, 2, 3, 4 — in the below sur­vey. If you’d like to pro­vide any fur­ther thoughts please use the com­ment sec­tion below or email astc@​astc.​nt.​gov.​au. Coun­cil thanks you for your time in com­plet­ing this survey.

Pri­va­cy state­ment: Sub­mit­ted sur­veys are anony­mous and per­son­al infor­ma­tion will not be kept on file. A report regard­ing the sur­vey results will be col­lat­ed and may be made pub­lic on Coun­cil’s web­site or via reports.

Note: final design may dif­fer (depend­ing on logis­tics, require­ment and com­mu­ni­ty feedback)
