The Dunedin City Council yesterday opened public consultation on the redevelopment of George St, which forms stage two of its $60million plan for the central city.
Council principal urban designer Kathryn Ward said it wanted to hear from those with ideas on what George St should look like in future.
The aim was to identify a set of preferred options by the middle of this year, after which the council would decide whether a further round of public consultation was needed, she said.
The development area stretched along George St from Albany St to Moray Pl, and the aim was to make it ''more attractive and pedestrian-friendly, while also celebrating our heritage and improving safety'', she said.
Roadshows held across the city would give people a chance to have their say, or people could use the council website - and an online interactive map - to share their views.
Workshops, activities and events would also promote the project.
The George St part of the central city plan was expected to cost between $18million and $28million, including funding from the council and the NZ Transport Agency.
Construction was scheduled to begin in 2021 and be completed at the end of 2022.
