new Duncan Mckinnon pavillion update
One of the concerns I've raised several times over the past few months has been the continued delay in commencing the construction of the new pavillion at Duncan Mckinnon Reserve, Murrumbeena and the consequences for other projects on the new pavillion program. Originally planned to start mid 2011 comencement is now most probably in June after tender arrangements are finalised. Whilst some delays are reasonable it has been a disappointing start to what will be fantastic new facilities used be many hundreds of local children and families who participate in the wide range of sports at the centre including netball, athletics, cricket and soccer. It has been designated our pavillion's program highest priority for these reasons and the sheer numbers that participates as anyone who rides or drives past on a Saturday morning will attest to. Temporary facilities will be provided over the approx 90 week construction phase for user groups.
