Council welcomes $5m funding boost for riverfront precinct

Mildura Rural City Council has welcomed a multimillion dollar commitment from the Victorian Government to further transform our city’s iconic riverfront precinct.

The Victorian Government today announced $5 million for Stage 1a of the Village Square, which will be a focal point for the second stage of the riverfront redevelopment.

Mildura Mayor Simon Clemence said the funding would help transform the area surrounding the current Powerhouse, building on the work already completed on the broader riverfront precinct in recent years.

“The Village Square will be at the heart of the next stage of development along the riverfront and include a cafe, landscaping, car parking and public amenities,” Cr Clemence said.

“These features will build even stronger connections between our CBD and the riverfront.”

The Mayor welcomed the Victorian Government’s funding announcement which he said would play a critical role in realising the Village Square concept.

“This funding is a significant boost for the second stage of our riverfront redevelopment which will provide additional services and amenities for local residents, while providing yet another drawcard for tourism and the economic benefits it will generate,” Cr Clemence said.
