COUNCIL AWARDS $380,000 TO GROUPS

MORE than 100 small businesses and community groups across the City of Parramatta have been awarded with over half a million dollars in grants as part of Council’s response to the COVID-19 crisis. Council has provided 36 local not-for-profit and social enterprises with Community Resilience Grants, totalling over $380,000, to help them adapt and diversify during the COVID-19 pandemic. An additional $150,000 was provided to set up the new Small Business COVID-19 Response Grant program, which has aided 85 businesses to pivot, expand, or digitise their operations amid public health restrictions.

POP-UP PARKS COME TO BLACKTOWN

SPRING has well and truly sprung in Blacktown’s city centre with a pop-up park in the Patrick Street Plaza. The new pop-up park can be found outside Westpoint Blacktown at the bottom of the travelators. The portable garden features natural lawn, wooden tree and flower planters, and fixed seating across four sections. Mayor of Blacktown City, Tony Bleasdale OAM, recently visited the Patrick Street Plaza for the launch of the pop-up park. “As the weather begins to warm up, Blacktown City Council wants to encourage locals and visitors to the area to enjoy the public space on offer in our city centre,” Mayor Bleasdale said. “With the ACU’s Blacktown campus to open in February, thousands of students are expected to fill the city centre. “We want the Blacktown CBD to continue to develop and grow, to be a vibrant place with thriving businesses, and this pop-up park is just one of the positive steps Council is taking towards creating a modern City.” Hills Daily Grind Coffee handed out free cups of coffee to people who took part in a Community Development survey. Feedback on the pop-up park was overwhelmingly positive, with participants noting the installation was “beautiful”, “relaxing”, “accessible”, a “good waiting space”, and “has improved the area”. The temporary pop-up park will be in place until March 2021 and will host events such as Blacktown City Council’s Beats and Bites program.
