New beach themed murals will revamp three Frankston City toilet blocks plagued by tagging and graffiti.
The toilets near the playground at the Frankston Foreshore, the Frankston Yacht Club toilets and the Seaford Life Saving Club public toilets will see images of marine life and local birds adorn the walls.
Frankston City Mayor, Cr Michael O’Reilly said the murals are being painted to deter graffiti and tagging in the area.
“We want the community to feel safe when using facilities like our public toilets. It’s important that these are kept in a clean and inviting state,” said the Mayor.
“We’re taking a pro-active approach to the problem of tagging and these three public toilet facilities will all receive a facelift.
“It’s a waste of ratepayers money to constantly be cleaning up tagging so we’ve engaged local artists, Melissa and Brigitte from Melbourne's Murals and Design, to paint these beautiful murals inside the toilet blocks. An anti-graffiti coating will also be applied to the walls.”
The work of these talented local artists is already a favourite with locals with their Alice in Wonderland mural featured at Frankston Library.
The public toilets near the playground at the Frankston Foreshore are nearly finished and the artists have already received great feedback from the community.
