We’re calling on all business

put their hands up for this task force. We have so many experienced business
people in Central Geelong who have a lot of valuable industry knowledge and
experience to contribute.

consider all feedback from the task force while making future decisions.
Councillor Eddy Kontelj
navigate our way through the current and future changes of COVID-19, I
encourage eligible and experienced business owners/operators and commercial
property owners to nominate, who have ‘skin in the game’ and a desire to see
Central Geelong continue to move forward. Council invites business people to
provide us their entrepreneurial views, suggestions and advice regarding the
CBD, particularly in the areas of public transport, CBD parking, the Central
Geelong Marketing Committee, the Central Geelong Marketing levy and commercial
force’s feedback will provide a valuable perspective as council leads the
community and CBD into a post COVID-19 future.
