Kealy calls for gov­ern­ment sup­port

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Mem­ber for Lowan Emma Kealy has urged the State Gov­ern­ment to pro­vide money to help make a Bal­moral Com­mu­nity Com­plex project a re­al­ity.

Ms Kealy made the call af­ter join­ing Vic­to­rian Op­po­si­tion sport rep­re­sen­ta­tive Tim Mc­curdy to dis­cuss the project with Bal­moral project com­mit­tee rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

“In­fra­struc­ture at the Bal­moral Recre­ation Re­serve is white-ant rid­den and some of the ar­eas are un­safe for pub­lic use,” Ms Kealy said.

She said a 2016 fea­si­bil­ity study also showed over­whelm­ing sup­port for a larger com­mu­nity build­ing, which could pro­vide a venue for func­tions, events and meet­ings.

“I con­grat­u­late Bal­moral and District Show­ground Recre­ation Re­serve Com­mit­tee and the ex­tended com­mu­nity on this out­stand­ing fundrais­ing ef­fort. It clearly demon­strates the strong com­mu­nity sup­port for this project,” Ms Kealy said.

“Fa­cil­i­ties of this na­ture are crit­i­cal to the so­cial fab­ric of rural com­mu­ni­ties and it’s vi­tal the gov­ern­ment steps in.”
