Axe to fall on old hall past best

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

THE City of Joon­dalup will be de­mol­ish­ing the Jack Kikeros Com­mu­nity Hall in Burns Beach from Fe­bru­ary.

Orig­i­nally a trans­portable build­ing con­structed in the 1960s, the small hall fa­cil­ity was re­fur­bished and in­stalled at its cur­rent lo­ca­tion in 1984.

It is now con­sid­ered small, out­dated and no longer ap­pro­pri­ate for mod­ern multi-purpose us­age.

The open­ing of the Bram­ston Park Com­mu­nity Sport­ing Fa­cil­ity in 2016, also in Burns Beach, has pro­vided a larger and more mod­ern fa­cil­ity for the com­mu­nity use and lo­cal sport and recre­ation clubs.

Com­mu­nity en­gage­ment was con­ducted on the Burns Beach Mas­ter Plan in 2016, which iden­ti­fied the Jack Kikeros Com­mu­nity Hall site for a cafe or restau­rant.

The City is li­ais­ing with hall user groups to iden­tify other op­tions at Bram­ston Park and nearby com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties.

The de­mo­li­tion is ex­pected to take about a week, with fore­shore toi­lets and change rooms avail­able for pub­lic use through­out the process.

Jack Kikeros was a lo­cal who lived in Burns Beach in the early 1970s and chaired a com­muu­nity progress as­so­ci­a­tion.
