Gisborne retail precinct rejuvenation gets State Government boost

THE State Government this morning announced a $200,000 investment in the $367,000 Gisborne Retail Precinct Rejuvenation Project. Treasurer Tim Pallas was in Gisborne to outline the funding, aimed at revitalising the town’s commercial district. Infrastructure upgrades will include new street furniture, landscaping works, accessible foot paths and drainage improvements for pedestrian safety. Mr Pallas said the works would inject $737,000 in the local economy, create 12 new jobs during construction and support two fulltime jobs thereafter.

“A strong regional economy is critical to Victoria’s long-term economic prosperity,” he said.

“Projects like the Gisborne Retail Precinct Rejuvenation will help drive job creation, increase visitation and boost the local economy.”

The works are a partnership between the government, Macedon Ranges Council and the Gisborne Region Events Activities and Tourism Association, and the community will be consulted.

Macedon MP Mary-Anne Thomas said the project would “provide a boost to local retailers by making Gisborne an even more attractive place to shop”.

The investment in Gisborne is part of the government’s $500 million Regional Jobs and Infrastructure fund.
