Attending this week's South Dunedin retail centre revital-isation information day, Phyllis Munro said she was pleased with the Dunedin City Council's plan to inject new life into the area.
The council, and engineering consultancy firm Beca Carter Hollings and Ferner, commissioned by the council, unveiled three options at the Gasworks Museum.
Mrs Munro, who, aside from some time overseas, has lived in South Dunedin all her life, said she liked all three "fabulous" redevelopment options.
She would like to see new buildings in the area, to liven up one of Dunedin's oldest precincts.
It would be good to see more "artistic" developments, and an emphasis on public trees and gardens, she said.
The proposals include widening parts of the street, new paving, seating, tree planting, footpath upgrades, shifting of car parks, and investigating a mini bus exchange for Hillside Rd.
South Dunedin mother-of-five Mary Alice Burke liked the emphasis on pedestrians, which would make it safer to cross streets with small children.
However, what the area most needed was a public library, she said.
Beca urban designer Annette Jones said it was likely the final proposal would be an amalgam of all three, based on aspects people liked.
DCC urban design special projects manager Emma O'Neill said once a final option was chosen, an official consultation process would be launched next year.
Local residents have about three weeks to provide informal feedback.
