Projects of City-Wide Significance

The City of Ballarat is advocating for these projects, which will bring multiple benefits to residents in Ballarat. Many are community hubs or gathering places which will be widely used and enjoyed.  

They will enhance lifestyle, liveability and sense of community; some will attract visitation and provide an economic boost for business.
