|The Wagga Wagga community is being invited to have further input into the development of the city’s new Police Citizens Youth Club.
Community consultations, to begin this week, will aim to ensure the best result is achieved for the youth of the region.
The organisation has acquired the site of the former South Wagga Wagga Bowling Club on the corner of Edward and Fitzhardinge streets to replace its ageing and inadequate facilities in Gurwood Street.
Community consultation meetings will be held at Wagga Wagga RSL Club tonight and on June 28.
PCYC’s Riverina zone regional general manager Brett Somerville said PCYC was considering the best ways to design and develop the new facility for the whole Riverina and the views of the public were important.
“This project will provide the entire community with a quality sports and recreation facility combined and has the potential for office space for youth services and other organisations,” he said.
“The team involved in designing the new facility will be at the two consultations and also undertaking further meetings with community during those two days.”
The community consultations will allow concept plans to be refined ahead of the submission of a development application to Wagga Wagga Council in August.
Mr Somerville said, to allow the widest possible feedback, the public was also invited to complete an anonymous online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PCYCWAGGA.
