“The Raymond Terrace CBD Improvement Project is an exciting new initiative put together by myself and my fellow West Ward Councillors Peter Kafer and Peter Francis,” Cr Arnott said.

“We’ve been hearing from our community for a long time now about the ideas they have for our town centre – it’s time to put these ideas on paper and work together to deliver improvements in our CBD,” he added.

Councillor Peter Francis said while there was a strong focus on King Street, Riverside Park and Port Stephens Street, Council is inviting ideas for improvements to any town centre locations.

Councillor Peter Kafer said the community would be empowered to decide which of the many ideas submitted would come to life.

“Our plan is to take all these ideas, work through what we can achieve and in a few weeks have the community vote on their favourite idea,” Cr Kafer said.

“Once we have a community vote, we’ll get our work boots on and partner with locals to bring these projects to life.”
