Central Goldfields Shire Council adopted its revised Priority Projects Plan at last night’s (28/07) Council Meeting to help secure government funding for significant new projects.
The revised Plan identifies the Maryborough Railway Station Activation, Carisbrook Levee, Wastewater for a growing Talbot, developing a pathway network, Central Goldfields Art Gallery upgrade (stages two and three), Carisbrook Recreation Reserve (stage two), Deledio Recreation Reserve Dunolly, Maryborough Splash Park and Central Goldfields Youth Hub as the key projects Council will advocate to federal and state governments for funding.
Several of these projects such as the Maryborough Skate and Scooter Park, Central Goldfields Art Gallery upgrade (stage 1) and Maryborough Railway Station Activation have already received funding from the State Government.
Central Goldfields Shire Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said a revised Priority Projects Plan was timely to reflect the Council Plan and the 2020/21 Proposed Budget. The Project Plan will also be handed on to the incoming council to support future advocacy opportunities.
“Our revised Priority Projects Plan is an important instrument when seeking support from other levels of government and the private sector to deliver these projects for the community. These projects have all been identified in our council plan and included in our proposed budget.
“The previous Priority Plan was successful in obtaining funding for several projects such as the Maryborough Skate and Scooter Park, Maryborough Sports and Leisure Centre upgrade, Carisbrook Recreation Reserve upgrade and urgent repair works at the Maryborough Outdoor Pool.”
