How can we fix Murray Bridge’s CBD?
Lower speed limits, more car parks, even another Sixth Street is on the table as the city’s council seeks feedback from business and property owners.
What will Murray Bridge’s central business district look like in future?
The city’s council is asking that question at the moment as it figures out how best to support local businesses and attract new ones.
Business and property owners have been invited to fill in a survey with their opinions of the CBD.
Included are some big questions:
Should speed limits be lowered?
Do we need another car park?
Should the council refurbish another street in the style of Sixth Street?
What should happen to the old police station on Bridge Street, mostly empty since 2012?
The survey also asks what the council already does well and where it needs to improve.
Could better footpaths, shop-fronts and landscaping be the answer; more foot traffic at night-time; or particular types of businesses?
Locals have until Monday, September 5 to have their say.
Business and property owners will also be invited to share their thoughts at a workshop with council staff.
