Don't miss the Griffith Regional Sports Precinct Community Forum
Members of the community are invited to attend a community forum on Thursday 26 July, 2018 at Griffith Regional Theatre at 6pm where Council will present what is proposed for the Griffith Regional Sports Precinct.
Council has been short-listed to apply for up to $10 million in funding under the Regional Sports Infrastructure Fund to construct a regional multisport facility at Westend Oval and for redevelopments at the Griffith Regional Aquatic Leisure Centre (GRALC) which includes the construction of a new 50m Outdoor Pool.
Council has until 31 August, 2018 to consult on, prepare and submit a funding application which is a very short timeframe therefore it is vital that interested community members turn up for this forum.
Mayor John Dal Broi said the meeting would be an opportunity for locals to find out more about what is planned and to provide input.
“I would urge as many residents as possible to attend this meeting,” said Mayor John Dal Broi
“It is wonderful news for Griffith that we have progressed to this next stage. Community consultation will play a vital role in this process so it’s important we get lots of people there.”
Developments at Westend include the extension and/or replacement of the existing Stadium, new netball courts, synthetic athletic tracks and hockey fields.
Griffith City Council General Manager, Brett Stonestreet, said this Sporting Precinct project was potentially a $24 million redevelopment for the city.
“Local sporting associations have been involved up to this stage, now we need the general public to have their say,” said Mr Stonestreet.
“Feedback received from previous consultation has shown that people are in favour of increased water space overall and for a 50-metre pool to be installed to cater for the recreational needs of the community.
“This is something we have been working towards for some time so to be at this stage is exciting.”
