The public is being asked for its say on the next step of the south Invercargill rejuvenation project.
South Alive co-ordinator Janette Malcolm said residents tonight have the chance to discuss proposed changes to Martin St, when the next South Alive meeting is held at the South City Mall Atrium. The meeting starts at 7pm.
Ms Malcolm said a spruce-up of the area was long overdue.
"This is our chance to try and make the area more appealing," she said.
Options for Martin St included integrating a covered seating area on the pavement or adding green spaces either side of the street.
The covered seating area would mean the loss of three parking spaces, but Ms Malcolm said the meeting would provide an opportunity for residents to say what they thought would work best for the area.
"The question is, do we want maximum carpark space or to go for a unique area for people to meet and sit?" she said.
She hoped for a good turnout at the meeting.
South Alive would also look at tidying up Elles Rd around the South City Mall area, she said.
The rejuvenation project was still in its early stages, but she believed a decision on the preferred design plan could be reached within the next couple of months.
It was hoped work could begin early next year.
