Lake Macquarie community encouraged to vote for local projects
Date posted: 15 July 2019
Lake Macquarie residents are being encouraged to show their support and vote for a number of local projects that have been submitted for funding under the NSW Government’s My Community Project grants program.
The My Community Project grants program will fund projects in each NSW electorate to help improve the wellbeing of the people and communities that live there.
A number of Lake Macquarie community groups, with support from Lake Macquarie City Council, have made submissions to the program, and success is dependent on a community vote.
Council’s Community Partnerships Manager Andrew Bryant said the My Community Project allows locals to think about what their area needs and to vote for projects that align with their priorities for the area.
“This is an exciting opportunity for the Lake Macquarie community to decide what improvements they would like to see in the community,” Mr Bryant said.
Some of the projects submitted in the Lake Macquarie area include:
- Warners Bay Lions Club Park grounds improvement and maintenance - $25,000
- Lakelands Playground rejuvenation - $165,000
- All ability and ages community hub at Morisset Multipurpose Centre - $193,027
- Chapman Oval, Swansea, upgrade including safety fence and multi-use path - $172,307
- Redevelopment of Reay Park Tennis Courts, Dudley - $112,813
- Sugarvalley Neighbourhood Centre, West Wallsend, bathroom and kitchen upgrade - $39,338
- Woodrising Neighbourhood Centre solar project - $21,496
Community members wanting to support and vote for their favourite projects within their electorate need to ensure they have registered for a My Service NSW account. Voting closes on 15 August 2019 with successful projects expected to be announced in September 2019.
