Right now, Boroondara businesses are experiencing the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) economic downturn.

While the social and economic landscape has changed for now due to COVID-19, our long term objectives to revitalise the precinct and create a thriving place for people of all ages remain the same.

This project will play a vital role in assisting the economic recovery of Maling Road.

After social distancing measures are eased, the project will also ensure that Maling Road remains a place where families and friends can come together and reconnect.

Supporting local businesses during this time is very important. Follow the Maling Road Traders Association #MalingRoadStillOpen campaign on Facebook or visit their website to find businesses that are opening their doors a little differently while our community stays safe at home.

For more information about the project in general, see Maling Road placemaking project or contact the Placemaking Team at [email protected] or on 9278 4640.
