Romsey's Main Street to get makeover27/07/2017
Romsey’s streetscape will be upgraded to create an attractive and more appealing environment to draw in visitors and help businesses thrive, thanks to funding from the Victorian Government.
Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford joined Member for Macedon Mary-Anne Thomas to announce that $400,000 would be invested in Romsey’s town centre to enhance its attractiveness and boost local jobs.
The upgrade of Main Street includes:
- safer pedestrian access
- improved amenity and visitor experiences
- upgraded lighting in key locations
- upgraded historical and interpretive information and signage
- landscaping and street furniture including seating and bicycle facilities.
Alongside increased economic benefits and local employment opportunities from the project, it will also help build civic pride and community wellbeing.
The grant is made possible by the Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund which is investing in projects that build critical infrastructure, create jobs and support dynamic communities.
The project will be delivered by Macedon Ranges Shire Council who are contributing $150,000 towards the town centres rebuild.
It is anticipated that six full-time jobs will be created for the duration of the four-month construction phase.
