Developing a new Economic Development Strategy for Lismore

 

Feedback wanted on developing our new Economic Development Strategy

Lismore City Council is developing a new Economic Development Strategy and is seeking input from the business community on how to grow Lismore as a regional city into the future.

The strategy will identify ways to support sustainable growth of our existing industries and services, and encourage the development of new ones over the coming decades.

Council is currently seeking ideas and fack from the community so that we can incorporate the best of that feedback into a comprehensive Economic Development Strategy that will help us grow Lismore over the next 20 years.

Lismore is a key driver for the whole Northern Rivers economy and we need a detailed action plan so we can strategically implement projects that will improve our city and help us attract businesses, increase jobs and boost tourism.

Council is holding a series of community workshops throughout July and August 2019 to seek feedback.
