City Heart Toowoomba Group Gets Green Light For CBD Markets

Margaret Street, Toowoomba will be closed between Ruthven and Neil Streets on Sunday, April 6th for the inaugural CBD Markets which will run from 8am to 2pm.

Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce and Industry CEO, Greg Johnson, said the Chamber has lodged the market application on behalf of City Heart Toowoomba Group. City Heart Toowoomba’s committee comprises Gary Wilson (Gelatissimo), Christine Coorey (3 Little Monkeys), Jan Gorring (QCWA) and Chris Gay (Elia Architects).

It is pleasing to note that many restaurants, pubs and other retail outlets will be open to complement the market. Entertainers and buskers will be present in numbers.

“The Chamber has long argued that we need to do much more to make the CBD attractive for families, couples and singles alike, particularly in the evenings and on weekends,” Mr Johnson said. “This is, hopefully, the first of many initiatives that will enable our citizens to enjoy the wonderful spaces that the CBD offers.”
