CBD revitalisation takes shape

THE Glenorchy CBD Revitalisation Project is continuing to take shape with stage three officially launched late last month.

The launch event saw guests entertained by the Glenorchy City Concert Brass before receiving essential information and updates on the project by Glenorchy Mayor Kristie Johnston and Local Member for Clark Elise Archer.

Mayor Johnston said it was “delightful” to watch community members and businesses come together to celebrate the launch of the new CBD, one that would embody a welcoming city.

“Our upgraded CBD will celebrate Glenorchy’s image and pride, as well as provide a great environment for people during both day and night activities,” she said.

“It will encourage people to enjoy our arts, heritage and public spaces, increasing accessibility, safety and exploration of our CBD.”

The highlight of the launch was the opportunity for the community to communicate with the Glenorchy CBD Project Reference Group.

The Project Reference Group is made up of individuals from businesses, emergency services, transport organisations, and education providers.

It has and will continue to work closely with the City of Glenorchy’s CBD Project team to provide advice, support, and information while the planning and delivery of the project takes place.

The group offers accurate information and updates, helping community members to understand more about the aims and desired outcomes of the project.

Glenorchy City Council has also set up pop-up information desks to hand out detailed information and project updates, as well as to answer community members’ questions.

Community members can follow the project at www.gcc.tas.gov.au, email cbdproject@gcc.tas.gov.au or follow the Glenorchy CBD Project Facebook page.
