City centre masterplan moves to next stage
COFFS Harbour City Council's application for the CBD Special Rate is now in the hands of the Minister for Local Government.
CBD Masterplan committee member Rod McKelvey said a decision wasn't expected until late June.
"The committee met recently and agreed to proceed with the initial stages of implementing so we can hit the ground running," he said.
"Council staff are well-advanced with the final detailed design work for the Brelsford Park Skate Park, which will allow Council, on behalf of the CBD Committee, to take the project to tender."
Committee member Kim Towner has been elected as the representative on the new City Centre Retail Group, which was formed to assist in revitalising the CBD.
