Moira Shire Council is seeking expressions of interest (EOI) to lease and activate a prominent Coram building.

Mayor Libro Mustica said the EOI process was an opportunity to further explore the community and business ideas that had been proposed during the development of Council’s Visitor Services Strategy.

“We are looking for a private operator to activate this iconic building and submissions could include the development of the facility into a dynamic hospitality venture with a dedicated Visitor Information Point,” Cr Mustica said.

“This building sits adjacent to the ‘piazza’ area in Cobram and we are hoping the EOI process will reactivate the underutilised areas to better service the modern-day needs and interests of local residents and visitors.”

He said given that it's an iconic building, “an activity that would bring people to the area and showcase our local produce and all we have to offer, such as a café dining experience would be wonderful”.

"There may be some other activity out there which could bring people to the town and still have the information we would normally provide," Cr Mustica said.

"We want to activate the piazza so the two will complement each other.

"It is a centre piece that will add vibrancy to the whole area."
