D-day for City Square

COMMENCEMENT of Coffs Harbour's City Square revamp will be determined in the next two weeks says the chairman of the City Centre Masterplan Committee, Rod McKelvey.

Initial construction work was scheduled to start in May with the aim of being completed in September.

Mr McKelvey said the committee was assessing the logistics of the construction including sourcing materials and labour.

In two weeks, Mr McKelvey said the committee will have determined if the works can be completed by the end of October before Rally Australia is held in November.

"The other alternative is to have it (the City Square) looking presentable enough for the world stage," Mr McKelvey said.

He said retailers in the vicinity remained a top priority as the revitalisation of the square took place.

"If we do make a decision to go (ahead with the works), the first thing we have to do is engage with the retailers in the City Square and share with them what we know at that time," he said.

When completed, Mr McKelvey said the City Square would be a worthy event space with the ability to host a variety of events.
