Quotes attributed to the Minister for Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics, Eva Lawler: Every great city has a lively and activated city centre, and the Civic and State Square Masterplan is a stunning representation of our citys great potential. This landmark initiative will be a key driver in revitalising our CBD and making it a much loved destination for visitors, attracting new residents and encouraging broader investment. This is also a boost to local business and a boost for local jobs. The redevelopment of Civic and State Square will provide more opportunities for local businesses to be involved and create local jobs in our community, while also creating a pipeline of work throughout the design, consultancy and construction stage. Quotes attributed to the Member for Port Darwin, Paul Kirby: Were continuing to build more open, green spaces for Territorians to enjoy across the CBD. Whether youre there for an event or just to enjoy a quiet stroll, this will be a fantastic space for everyone. It is our priority to support Territory businesses by creating more local jobs and boosting the number of visitors coming into our CBD."
