Million-dollar revamp for Morwell's CBD

Morwell’s CBD will undergo a streetscape upgrade, courtesy of a $1 million grant from the Latrobe Valley Authority’s Community Facility Fund announced today, which will allow work to get underway on the Future Morwell Streetscape Upgrade Project.

The $3.5 million upgrade along Commercial Road will start later this month and transform Morwell CBD into a vibrant and attractive commercial hub.

The Future Morwell project is being led by Latrobe City Council and a steering group of community members.

Over the next three years the upgrade will boost the town’s unique identity by repurposing existing open spaces to create a connected commercial hub of cafes, restaurants and businesses. 

The project will improve landscaping, upgrade lighting and deliver new trees, garden beds and open spaces – making the business centre greener and more pedestrian-friendly.

The project will deliver a big boost to the local economy – attracting visitors, investment and new businesses to Morwell.

The grant is from the Latrobe Valley Authority’s Community Facility Fund and is in addition to another 26 successful projects also announced today to benefit local community facilities and organisations across Latrobe City, Wellington and Baw Baw Shire Councils.
