By July 30, 2010August 15th, 2010No Comments

Maroondah City Council welcomes the funding commitment of $250,000 made by the Federal Opposition, through Phil Barresi, Candidate for Deakin and Kevin Andrews, Shadow Minister for Families, this morning towards the rebuilding of the North Ringwood Community House.

The Oban Road facility no longer meets the current or future needs of the community and Council is working with North Ringwood Community House Inc to find an appropriate site to relocate the House.

A Relocation Feasibility Study, commissioned by North Ringwood Community House Inc, estimated that to cater for the future population of North Ringwood, the new facility would need to consist of two to three full-sized classrooms, a large multi-purpose activities room, meeting room, staff facilities, consulting space, crèche and associated amenities, outdoor areas and car parking.
