THE Revitalising Central Geelong initiative has delivered a range of projects to the CBD, helping to transform the city into a diverse economic, social, residential and cultural centre.

Works such as the Green Spine project, Little Malop St laneways upgrade and the Johnstone Park rain garden all fall under the RCG banner.

From the green open spaces in the CBD fitted out with bike servicing stations to the vibrant laneways precinct peppered with cafes, bars, street art and night `spots, these additions have improved the look and feel of the Geelong CBD and breathed new life into Victoria’s second biggest city.

The Revitalising Central Geelong Action Plan is a 10-year program of priority actions to invigorate central Geelong, and is being undertaken as a joint project by the Victorian State Government and City of Greater Geelong Council.

It was developed to help central Geelong redefine itself in order to attract investment, deliver employment opportunities and provide a lifestyle that makes people want to live in the city centre and visit often.

Eight projects have been completed so far, with another four currently underway and more planned for the new year.
