Public Meeting No.2 - December 2006 - Jerra School Hall
If you read your junk mail bundle that arrived on Sunday 12 November 06, you would have received a notice from Council in regard to the public meeting for Wednesday 15 November 2006 at 7.00pm at the Community Centre regarding how S94 funds (received from the developers of the Jerrabomberra area). The Council proposes to spend this money on the construction of a Youth Centre at the cost of $800,000 in the area opposite the Community Centre and next to the Scout Hall plus extend the Community Centre by 10m towards the Jerra Parkway, at the cost of $350,000.

The JRA disagrees with this approach. We believe that these funds should be allocated towards the construction of a multi-purpose sports and community facility. The land for large community facilities has been made available as part of the rezoning process currently with NSW Government. We are expecting a decision from Minister Sartor mid 2009 regarding rezoning. The Council has advised that these funds have been earmarked for youth facilities. The JRA believes that these funds would be better spent for the youth and the boarder community by providing funding towards the construction of an aquatic centre or multi-sports facility.

The Jerrabomberra Public School P&C Association has also raised the issue of community priorities and the proposed location of the Youth Centre facility.

We strongly urge you to attend any public meetings and discuss with Council your views. If you cannot attend, please let us know your views by email.
