We asked Rocky's riverbank dwellers, will you move?

ROCKHAMPTON riverbank dweller Meghan Freeman today gave her endorsement to mayor Margaret Strelow's bold vision to transform the area.

Meghan told The Morning Bulletin she and her friends visit the riverbank area on a daily basis.

She believes the new $36.4 million re-development will give the region a stunning look and be a good move.

 

Earlier today Cr Strelow said she was aware of a rise in unruly behaviour on the riverbank and that the construction of the new precinct would see more people use the area leading to those responsible forced to move on.

Meghan said she had seen artists impressions of the proposed works and was looking forward to its completion.

"We come here every every day but we won't be coming here when it is built because there will be too many children," Meghan claimed.

"I like the work and the water park idea. It will be nice with the restaurant. It will be deadly.

"We aren't allowed in the CBD area (due to alcohol consumption) so we will go down to Tent City.

"We aren't hurting anyone, we are just a but loud sometimes and fight."
