Taking steps to help the CBD

IF YOU go down to the Maryborough CBD this Sunday, you're in for another nice surprise.

Fraser Coast Regional Council workers will be out and about again sprucing up the streets.

Maryborough CBD Renewal Group chair Daniel Sanderson said tree trimming started last Sunday and work would continue on Sundays, leading to the Spring Clean Maryborough CBD Day on November 14.

“Garden beds will be planted, Kent Street trees will be pruned and landscaping and footpath cleaning will occur,” he said.

“This (work) has provided a great opportunity to organise the spring clean day in November when all business operators, the council and community are welcome to be involved.

“The council has offered assistance with the provision of minor equipment (such as pressure cleaners) and skip bins, and depending on the interest from business owners, the CBD may need to be closed.

“A sausage sizzle will be organised for all involved.”

Tasks include guerneying footpaths, gutters and shopfronts, cleaning windows, general cleaning and small renovations.

Mr Sanderson said all business owners and members of the community were encouraged to participate.
