We can now report that we made 437 community members aware of the York Street Project, of this group 150 were more informed having viewed the information and downloaded the documents, and we were pleased to get 72 participants complete our survey, and 12 participants writing comments in the brainstormer section.


What we head from you

The survey results showed us that the community supports the improvement of the York Street side of the Market, and in particular Loving or Liking the idea of art space, entertainment, green walls, pocket parks, occasional food trucks, communal dining, public seating.

We received some great constructive comments also, and all feedback has been passed onto the designers appointed to the project to assist them in their formulating the Draft York Street Activation Masterplan.
