East Village Revitilisation

East Village Revitilisation

The East Village is an area framed by Memorial Avenue, and bordered by Fir Street, Fern Road and Berwick Road, and holds huge potential for the Town.

The East Village revitalization project seeks to connect East Village with the rest of the Town centre, redesigning it with the Town's architecturally distinct feel and style, and creating an inviting and quaint 'uptown' area. The revitalisation will also providing an injection of life into businesses; providing greater opportunities for investment and economic success.

East Village

Specifically, this project includes:

  • Adding public spaces, including a community gathering area with a stage;
  • Re-configuring and repaving the streets to emphasize pedestrians and have a focus on accessibility;
  • Activating the public realm by adding street trees, new lighting, public seating areas and planters;
  • Creating linkages between East Village and the rest of the town by connecting the neighbourhood through the use of streets, laneways and trails; and,
  • Engaging town-owned land to foster creative uses, such as an innovation hub and brew pub.
