Strategic Plan Update

The City South Committee have been working hard over recent months putting our plans together for the year ahead and beyond. You can peruse these goals and strategies in the newly update Strategic Plan that has been uploaded to our website. Check it out here, and if you have any comments, don't hesitate to get in touch with the Coordinator via email.

Bike Path Proposal for South Terrace

As part of our ongoing commitment to safety and beneficial development in the Precinct, City South suggested the Adelaide City Council consider installing a bike path between Morphett St and West Tce, running parallel to South Tce - particularly given there are no bike lanes along South Tce. Not only will this provide a more direct route to the West Tce bike trail but also provide better access for families visiting the popular Princess Elizabeth Playground.
We received a swift response from Council noting that a proposal had been lodged for such as project in the 2016-17 Budget but was not funded. We have touched base with our Area Councillors to put our support behind another application in the 2017-18 Budget. 

Beans & Sprouts at a new venue!

Our next Beans & Sprouts Family Day event will be at a different playground, after two fantastic events at The Princess Elizbaeth Playground. Join us on Saturday October 15, this time at the recently upgraded Glover Playground on South Terrace (near Pulteney St). As usual, we'll have food and coffee trucks onsite plus a petting zoo, face painting, and balloon animals for the kids as well as funky tunes playing all day. Catch up with the City South Committee at our Event Desk and chat about our upcoming projects, become a Member, or just shoot the breeze! It should be another great day out and we look forward to seeing you there! Check out the Facebook event here and start sharing! 

City South launches Traders Group

City South welcomes Business Owners and Managers of the Precinct (as well as Residents) to the launch of our Business Task Group. With the working title of City South Traders, this new Committee will work alongside the existing one, but will focus solely on issues affecting businesses in the area. These include increasing foot traffic, lifting revenues, lowering vacancy rates and increasing the area's profile.
We are hosting a Launch event at the Minor Works Building on Wed Oct 26 at 6pm for 6.15pm start. Area Councillors Alex Antic and Priscilla Corbell will both be in attendance and we will be discussing the Groups format, meeting schedule and some of the ideas we have already developed. Drinks and nibbles will be served on the night. If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to
In the weeks leading up to the event, we aim to meet face-to-face with as many businesses in the Precinct as we can to introduce ourselves and promote the Group.

Festive Lights return to Whitmore Square this November

Plans are underway for one of City South's most popular projects - The Whitmore Square Festive Lights! We are booked in to erect the display on Tues Nov 22, and the festoon, LEDs and Floods will stay in place until the end of Fringe in Mid March 2017!
And look out for the Christmas Yarn Bombing that will occur on Whitmore and Hurtle Squares again this year in early December! 

The City South Precinct is bordered by West Tce, South Tce, Pulteney St and Gouger/Angas Streets.
