Town hall meeting to discuss George Town revitalisation

George Town Manager Colin Lumsden delivers a presentation on the revitalisation of the capital to civil servants on 20 June.

A town hall meeting will be held on Thursday, 18 July, to discuss ways of revitalising George Town.

Colin Lumsden, who holds the titles of George Town Manager and Revitalisation Initiative Coordinator, will host the public meeting, which will begin at 4:30pm at Constitution Hall, George Town (formerly known as George Town Town Hall).

According to a media advisory, the event “will offer a presentation and project update alongside the chance for the public to ask questions and outline their priorities and aspirations for the revitalised George Town”.

Lumsden, who had worked as an architect with the Public Works Department and helped design the George Town Library, took up the role as George Town Manager on 15 Oct. last year.

Organisers said the initiative has a “holistic attitude towards regeneration”, with an approach that is “long-term and multi-faceted, aiming to bring additional life and vibrancy back to the capital”.

Last month, on 20 June, Lumsden delivered a similar presentation and a Q&A to a group of civil servants, discussing, among other issues, parking, traffic, public transportation, footpaths and green or open spaces, and getting feedback via a survey from the attendees.
