ARC wins name vote

Cockburn Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THE $109 mil­lion recre­ation cen­tre be­ing built at Cock­burn Cen­tral West fi­nally has a name: Cock­burn ARC (Aquatic and Recre­ation Cen­tre).

Cock­burn coun­cil­lors signed off on the name at a spe­cial coun­cil meet­ing on Thurs­day night, but not be­fore a late dose of drama.

The rec­om­men­da­tion put to coun­cil­lors was to back Cock­burn ARC as the name of the fa­cil­ity fol­low­ing a poll of 1194 res­i­dents and to ap­prove $32,300 for the de­vel­op­ment of a style guide.

Of the res­i­dents sur­veyed, 52 per cent chose ARC as the pre­ferred name.

That was de­spite the al­ter­na­tive choice, STAR (Sports, Train­ing, Aquatic and Recre­ation) Cen­tre Cock­burn, be­ing more pop­u­lar in three of the four age cat­e­gories mea­sured.
