Mackay Waterfront vision unveiled
Those precincts are City Centre, Riverside, Enterprise, Queens Park and Beachside.
Mayor Greg Williamson said the master plan incorporated many community ideas from previous extensive community consultation.
“It details the public realm vision and concepts for the Mackay Waterfront over the next 20 years,’’ he said.
“The master plan is not a design document but provides that higher level vision to inform more detailed designs of individual projects within the five precincts.
“Importantly, it is a live, evolving document that will be responsive to any opportunities or constraints that emerge.”
Cr Williamson said the master plan would also be an important marketing tool as the Council sought to attract large investors and government funding.
“We also have some local investors excited by opportunities the Mackay Waterfront PDA presents,” he said.
Construction work on the PDA is already under way, with a redevelopment of Queens Park, funded by the State Government.
The draft masterplan can be viewed via connectingmackay.com.au and is open for comment until November 4, 2019.
