Dublin City Council have established a ‘City Recovery Task Force‘ to provide a physical, economic, social and cultural recovery strategy post Covid-19.
The overall objective is to contribute to the recovery of the city centre by creating a roadmap for the delivery of the City Council’s vision in line with the Government’s plans for relaxing Covid restrictions and for reopening the economy.
There will be extensive stakeholder engagement during the process.
The primary focus of the initiative will be on non-residential areas between the Canals to the North and South and stopping at Heuston Station in the West.
It is proposed that the Task Force will have an internal focus dealing with City Council services and those matters that the City Council specifically controls, and an external focus dealing with stakeholders and addressing their needs post-Covid. The key themes will include:
- City Centre Recovery Plan
- Presentation of the City
- Promotion of Outdoor Trading/Dining
- Roll out of additional public conveniences
- Policing and Safety
- Animating the City by organising events
- Delivering Capital Projects
- Promotion/Lobbying on behalf of city centre
