Council to meet with public tonight on CBD revitalisation

CREATIVE input or just simple, common sense ideas are being sought from the Bundaberg regional community to assist in the development of a concept design for a CBD streetscape revitalisation.

Bundaberg Mayor Mal Forman said a public meeting to be held tonight would explain the need for the revitalisation and the area designated for inclusion.

"However, it is really important that we have feedback from the general and business communities who are the users of the facility," he said.

"The CBD area provides a great public space and we need to ensure we cater to a desirable and functional future use of the area as well as making it attractive and inviting for the shopping community and our traders."

The meeting will be held tonight at the School of Arts building adjacent to the council's administration centre from 6pm.
