Project Overview

Market Place and Thirteenth Street in Bowden is listed for road rehabilitation in our road program for this current financial year.

In December 2021, we met with residents to discuss any issues or opportunities regarding the existing landscaped garden, alignment of the roadway and the general condition of the street. Since that time, we have also received a petition for the inclusion of street trees in Market Place and Thirteenth Street.

Based on what we heard from you, a detailed concept plan has been developed and we would now like to hear your thoughts.
