Community Consultation Worksheet


October 2019

Griffith City Council is calling on the community to have their say on the Griffith Regional Aquatic Leisure Centre (GRALC) Redevelopment Project by participating in an online survey.

Director Business, Cultural and Financial Services Max Turner said the aim of the survey is to better understand what the community would like to see as part of the funding.

“The GRALC redevelopment forms part of the $24.8M Griffith Regional Sports Precinct funding, with $7M dedicated to the swimming complex,” said Mr Turner.

“A draft aspirational plan has been developed for any potential features the community may desire in the future, however the Stage One works are what is needed to be delivered for the funding.

“Council would like community feedback to inform the design and construction of the 50M pool, amenities extension, plant room, and landscaping.”

The community is also invited to attend a community forum to be held at Griffith City Library on Thursday 24 October 2019, starting at 5.30pm.
