01 September 2030 will mark the re-establishment of City Place, Cairns, as the community's Town Square and pedestrian-only precinct. In the meantime, Cairns' citizens are asked to commit to never driving through City Place.
We will never forget the fraudulent and unprofessional "community consultation" run by Council and funded by Queensland Transport (TMR) in 2013 to try to disprove what was obvious - a minimum 80% support in the community and amongst small businesses in the CBD to retain and revitalise City Place as our Town Square and pedestrian precinct.
Confirming your attendance means you commit to never driving through City Place. We will also encourage City Place / Town Square-type events in this space in the meantime. We have time on our side and it remains City Place our Town Square. Thanks, Council, for the grassy knoll!
