Year of bumper projects
Happy new year!
I hope you have had or are still having a great relaxation and rejuvenation ahead of what is going to be another very busy year in Karratha.
First there is our new theatre and library — the Red Earth Arts Precinct — and of course our brilliant new hospital. Both are already highly visible developments in the CBD.
We have a range of projects on the cards for 2017.
One is stage two of the very popular foreshore upgrade works at Point Samson, Dampier and Karratha — paths and stairs to the beach, shade structures and plantings.
Another is an upgrade to the carpark at Karratha Airport, which shall include landscaping, new road layouts and shade for passengers and families.
We are building a new park at Nickol West, which will double the size of the existing Kookaburra Park and provide a new sports oval, landscaping and toilets.
We will also begin the design of our marina at Dampier, which will be a fantastic boost to the whole region. The Wickham Community Hub detailed design and construction documents will be finished soon and we hope to have the funding secured and building starting in the second half of the year.
Kerbside recycling will start across all our towns in February.
