Six Liebig Street business representatives have been appointed to the Liebig Street Leadership Group.

The consultative group will assist Warrnambool City Council with the delivery of the $15 million Warrnambool City Centre Renewal and with business promotion during the Stage I construction period.

The group will be a conduit between Council and the city centre business community and bring with them business knowledge, skills, a positive attitude and experience in marketing and events.

The group will be chaired by Mayor Cr Kylie Gaston.

“Congratulations to new members of the Liebig Street Leadership Group,” Cr Gaston said.

“We had excellent nominations and it was great to see people putting themselves forward to be part of the revitalisation program.

“The group of six traders is made up of positive and proactive leaders who will communicate with their fellow traders – they will be the connection to Council.

“It is exciting that they will be able to help with marketing ideas and contribute to ensuring Liebig Street remains vibrant and busy during the construction period.”

The group comprises Sue Cassidy of Unisex Cuts; Heidi Wisniewski of Enique Eco Store; Bruce Ludeman of Ludeman Real Estate, Jo Esam of Priceline; Max Taylor of Taylor’s Surfodesy and Debbie Arnott of Style 105.

“This is a great mix of large, small, national and boutique businesses from the services and retail sectors,” Cr Gaston said.

“I look forward to chairing the group which will provide an additional communication channel to retailers and business owners in Liebig Street.”

Group member Max Taylor said he was looking forward to the renewal.

“The renewal can only make the CBD more attractive and shoppable for people to come to,” Mr Taylor said.

“We have to grin and bear the next two years and the end result should be fantastic.

“I hope that through the group we can have any concerns about the project relayed through to the Council.

“We’ll do some marketing and promotion along the line and keep the cash registers ticking over.”

Stage I construction of the City Centre Renewal, comprising the central and northern blocks of Liebig Street, will take place from February to October next year.

Stage II construction, the southern block of Liebig Street between Timor and Koroit streets and Koroit Street between Liebig and Kepler streets, will take place from February to October in 2018.
