This Month: Project CBD!
A CBD (Central Business District) is often the commercial, business, tourist and social heart of a town. What do you want your CBD to look like next year? In 5 years? How do we put a unique Goulburn stamp on our city, which will benefit everyone?
Come and join the discussion. We want to hear your views and ideas for how our CBD district, small business shopfronts, the retail shopping experience and social and tourist opportunities could be enhanced and grown. The aim of this discussion is to collate positive and achievable ideas and strategies.
Council members will also be attending to answer your questions.
