Logan Central’s future is in your hands
Published: 17 April 2018
Logan residents, business and investors will come together next month to help shape the exciting future of Logan Central at a summit as part of a city-wide economic development initiative.
Logan City Council’s Planning and Economic Development chair Cr Russell Lutton said attendees would join experts in design, economic stimulation, job creation and urban innovation at the Logan Central Summit, to be held on May 11.
“As a Council we’re looking ahead to Logan Central’s future and we want to include residents, business owners and anyone with an interest in the suburb to be a part of that journey,” Cr Lutton said.
“We want to capitalise on the many opportunities available to help develop Logan Central as the civic and cultural heart of city.
“To help Logan Central unlock its full potential, we have a panel of experts lined up to share their national and international perspectives on how we can make Logan Central an interesting and exciting place to live, work, visit, play and do business in.
“Seats are free but limited so I encourage anyone interested in attending the summit to register attendance now.
The initiative is part of a city-wide series of Council-hosted summits, and follows successful events previously held in Springwood, Beenleigh and Logan Village, with Meadowbrook and Jimboomba to come.
The Logan Central summit will run from 8.30am - 5pm at the Logan Entertainment Centre (LEC).
Following the summit, a community feedback session will be held at the LEC from 5.30pm to 9pm. A follow up community feedback session will also be held on Saturday 12 May at the Logan Central Plaza from 9am – 12pm.
No registrations are required for these feedback sessions, which is an opportunity for people to talk to Council about your ideas for the future Logan Central.
In the lead up to the forum, Council has engaged experts Placescore to undertake a place assessment to understand what the community values in their ideal city centre and how they rate the current experience of main streets in Logan Central.
The online survey is running until April 23 at www.placescore.org/logancentral.
All survey respondents will be added into the draw to win one of two shopping vouchers.
