Community meetings today for Glenlee Park
LIVINGSTONE Council will meet today with both Glenlee Park and Olive Estate communities to outline timeframes for the roll-out of parkland and playground master-plans.
Mayor Bill Ludwig said council allocated $100,000 towards the Glenlee Park master plan in its 2015/16 budget before applying for and securing a further $100,000 under the State Government's Get Playing Places and Spaces funding program.
"The success for Glenlee residents highlights what can be achieved by council partnering with the State Government to help deliver projects local communities need and deserve," Cr Ludwig said.
"This is a fantastic outcome for Glenlee residents which we now want to also achieve for Olive Estate residents as well. The planned meeting in each community will inform the community on the timeframes for the roll-out of their respective parkland master plans.
"In Glenlee the money already secured will be spent on a Pocket Park BMX Track, multi-use sports oval, upgraded tennis courts, new cricket nets, new playground equipment and barbecue facilities, along with walking paths, landscaping and car park upgrades."
Construction on the first stage of the Glenlee Park master plan will begin in April.
Council is now preparing the funding submissions to advance the master plan for Olive Estate.
