10 things that would be really cool in the Lismore CBD

THERE are lots of empty shops in the Lismore CBD.

But what should fill them? What do you think our city needs? What would make a big difference to the vibe of our city centre?

We took the question to our Facebook readers, and these were 10 of our favourite suggestions. Let us know your ideas by sending an email to me: rebecca.lollback@news.com.au.

1. Night markets/night shop trading in summer. And embrace the river! Imagine a park where the Riviera carpark is. Our cars have the best CBD view of the river there is! Kristin Den Exter

2. Pedestrianised streets creating a piazza effect Michael Buckley

3. A rock climbing gym Joseph McDermott

4. A free swimming pool Debbie Newlands

5. Family friendly restaurants and cafes Sara McDonald

6. Middle Eastern restaurant Beki Davies

7. RV/caravan overnight parking for grey nomads Glenys Ritchie

8. A Goonellabah CBD. Underground power. A micro brewery Wayne Ramsay
