Makeover for City Square

6 years ago | by

City Square in Coffs Harbour’s CBD is to have a mini makeover to refresh the space in time for the Easter break and school holidays.

“Planning is well underway for City Square to undergo a major $2m transformation as part of the joint community, Council and business push to make it a key regional destination, ” said Mick Raby, Council’s Director Sustainable Infrastructure.

“The significant upgrade of City Square is still a little way off, but as a start we want to make sure that the precinct is looking its best and to give people a flavour of the kind of shopping and dining experience they can expect in the future.”

As part of the community conversation over the new-look City Square, Council staff will have a stall at the Growers Market in City Square on Thursday, March 15, from 8am until 1pm to speak to shoppers and passers-by on the aspects of the precinct that they particularly value. The feedback gained will help inform the final design.

“This is an exciting point in time for the CBD with so much happening in both the private and public sectors,” said Mr Raby.

“Coupled with the proposed Cultural and Civic Centre for the CBD and the recent improvements at the jetty foreshores, the whole city is moving forward in an exciting direction”.

The City Square upgrade concept design will be available mid-year for the community to view.
