About $25 mil­lion of that will come from mu­nic­i­pal funds, $22.7 mil­lion from grants and other con­tri­bu­tions and $17 mil­lion from re­serve funds.

The City has al­lo­cated $2.1 mil­lion to de­velop and up­grade roads in the Neer­abup in­dus­trial area and $1.9 mil­lion to widen Pin­jar Road in Banksia Grove.

The bud­get lists $12 mil­lion of the $23 mil­lion pro­vided by the State Govern­ment to widen Marmion Av­enue from But­ler to Yanchep, with the project due to fin­ish the fol­low­ing fi­nan­cial year.

Fund­ing for sports fa­cil­i­ties will in­clude $4 mil­lion for the But­ler north ac­tive open space.

There will also be $1.5 mil­lion for Kingsway Olympic Club change rooms and grand­stand, as well as $900,000 for net­ball clu­b­rooms at Kingsway Re­gional Sport­ing Com­plex.

There is also $400,000 for the long-awaited coastal path be­tween Min­darie and Burns Beach, but only $77,775 to re­de­velop the Quinns Rocks Car­a­van Park, which closed to vis­i­tors in late 2012.
