Beaufort Street will soon have a great new place for people to meet, relax and enjoy.
The Mary Street Piazza was approved by Council on 9 September 2014. Well done City of Vincent! It will now be professionally designed and built. This will be a community space for decades to come.
The piazza was trialled between 25 July and 8 August 2014. The purpose of the trial was to provide an opportunity for people to see what could be done in the space and assess things like traffic and parking impacts.
The community feedback was fantastic with 87% of the 300 submissions supporting a new public space for Beaufort Street.
These type of public spaces are where social exchanges take place, friends run into each other and cultures and interests mix. They are like public 'front porches' for our community to interact.
We are delighted that we will have this designated people space on Beaufort that will help foster an essential link and balance between our local community and the maintaining of commercial vibrancy.
