The Stirling Point upgrade and Chain Link Sculpture were completed in December 2008. The upgrade was opened by Invercargill Mayor Tim Shadbolt, and the sculpture by Alison Broad, former chairwoman of the Community Trust.
The Council’s Bluff Service Centre, which includes Lotto, Post Shop and library services, is 16 Gore Street. The Community Board meetings are held at the Muncipal Chamber.
