Morawa - SuperTown moves forward
As a SuperTown, the community and Council agreed that the first stage of attracting sustainable growth to their town would be to focus efforts on its town centre, to enhance the amenity and appeal of the town for both the local community and visitors. This will in turn facilitate both economic and social outcomes for Morawa.
Stages 1 & 2 of an overall revitalisation project include:
Firstly, removing road freight off its main street without affecting local business by building a new road to the east of the existing main street.
Secondly, developing a community heart and a focus for community interaction and catalyst for future investment in Morawa by building a new town square for community, civic and visitor activities.
The project team has been working hard to achieve a significant project milestone, with the recent release of the tender documentation for the construction of the new freight road, and design of the new town square reaching 90% completion.
2014 looks like being a good year for Morawa.
