More than 50 people attended Wagga City Council's Cultural Plan workshop on Wednesday to put forth their ideas on how to make the city more vibrant, connected and creative..
Consultation with the community and stakeholders began in February with more than 1200 submissions and comments made so far, and Cultural Officer Tim Kurylowicz said there was a range of opinions expressed.
"At the workshop, we heard a lot of support for increasing the visible presence of Wiradjuri culture in our city and riverside precinct," he said.
"The community clearly want to see our main streets revitalised with creative activity, using empty shopfronts and supporting local businesses.
"We also heard from many representatives of arts and culture groups who expressed the need for improved facilities and sharing resources."

The ideas and submissions will be used to prepare the draft Cultural Plan, which would then be placed on public exhibition later this year for further feedback.
The council has asked the community to continue their contributions and see what others are saying on their website before submissions close on Friday, July 12.
