Council hopes for more Maryborough CBD street events
AFTER hearing feedback about Thursday night's Maryborough CBD street party, Fraser Coast Councillor Daniel Sanderson said similar events may become a regular occurrence along Kent and Adelaide Streets.
About 3000 people filled the newly "revitalised" streets of Maryborough's City Business District to celebrate the completion of the Fraser Coast Regional Council's $3.2 million upgrade.
Town centre councillor Daniel Sanderson said now that the upgrade was completed, the council would look into holding more regular events similar to the CBD party.
"A lot of feed back I got last night was that it would be good to see these events happen much more often," Cr Sanderson said.
"We do need community groups and business groups working with council and FCO to make this happen and those discussions are occurring with people."
He said hosting monthly twilight markets could be one possibility.
"We would be happy to talk to store holders about opportunities, once a month or every two monthly markets going into the evening and other activities going with the markets would only be a good thing," he said.
"But you've got to start small and go from there.
"I'd like to see dinners in the city, fashion shows, all these types of things that our community could get behind."
