Central Goldfields Shire Council will receive $50,000 in Victorian Government funding for the Maryborough Railway Station Activation project.
Minister for Regional Development Jaclyn Symes MP announced the funding on Friday (19/06) as part of the Stronger Regional Communities Program 2019/20.
Activation project is a key priority identified in both the Economic Development and Tourism & Events Strategies that were adopted in March.
According to council, the overall vision is to see the station building become a hub of activity that nurtures local small businesses and creative enterprises while providing a welcoming entry point to visitors to the shire.
The funding will enable some initial works to get a first stage of the project off the ground in 2020/21, with a focus on establishing a small business support centre.
