Council looks into proposed future upgrades for Archer Park
MUNDUBBERA is on a shortlist to host a Queensland Country Rugby League game in July and potential upgrades to Archer Park could allow for further opportunities in the future.
The results of an Archer Park and Sport and Recreation meeting through the council were released in the January meeting and outlined ideas and benefits.
Some of the upgrades are to facilitate bringing Archer Park up to Queensland Rugby League Association regulations and could open up further opportunity for the venue.
Upgrades to the lighting system will help to bring Archer Park up to regulation while field quality is already up to standard.
Some of the other suggestions include kitchen upgrades, with funding applications set for 2017, along with a planned surveillance system.
All up, 11 options were actioned at the meeting.
Division three councillor Faye Whelan chaired the meeting of the Archer Park Advisory Committee on December 5 along with the council sport and recreation officer and members of various sporting groups.
North Burnett Council sport and recreation officer, Lucas Bell, is tasked with overseeing a majority of the actions outlined by the council including funding allocation and applications.
The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 1 from 7.30pm at Archer Park and will close at 9pm.
The council said upgrading Archer Park to a regional quality sporting facility would allow more major sporting events and would be a great asset.
