Ignite lights up our centre

A permanent light display has been installed at the Church Street Rotunda as a result of feedback from the community during the Ignite Our Centre Engagement Program.

Dubbo City Council’s Economic Development Officer Josie Howard said the lights have been made permanent after overwhelming positive feedback after a trial period during the Ignite Our Centre Engagement Program.

“One of the aims of the Ignite program is to find lighter quicker cheaper initiatives to promote activity and create ambience in the CBD that were workshopped by the community and key CBD stakeholders,” Ms Howard said.

“The lights will switch on during the evenings and early mornings and have already received great feedback during installation from both retailers and the public,” Ms Howard said.

“With Christmas just around the corner, these lights will be sure to add to the festive atmosphere in the rotunda area during the busy retail period,” she said.

“The community can expect to see more of these placemaking activities throughout the CBD over the next two years as part of the Ignite Program adopted by Council at the October meeting of Council,” she said.
