New group to guide rec hub

Mount Gambier City Council is seeking applications from the community for the Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre Stage 3 Community Reference Group (CRG).

The CRG provides an opportunity for members of the community to have input into the future operational model for the major centre currently being built at Olympic Park on Margaret Street, Mount Gambier.

A council spokesperson said the committee was being established by council to provide considered advice to assist decision making on matters associated with the development of the centre.

“The new CRG committee follows the work of the former CRG which was established in May 2018 to provide advice to assist council with the initial planning stages of the development,” the spokesperson said. “As we move forward with the build, the Terms of Reference for the CRG have been updated to better reflect the construction and operational/activation phases of the project.”

The CRG seeks up to 21 individuals and representatives from the education sector, allied health sector, early childhood sector, retirement and aged care sector, first nations community, young persons (aged 12-25 years), disability sector, community services sector, sporting/ recreation clubs, swimming, basketball, netball, music/performing arts/events industry and other community groups.

The committee will meet once every two months. The application form and Terms of Reference are available via or visit the council office at the Civic Centre, 10 Watson Terrace, Mount Gambier.

Applications must be received by 5pm on Wednesday, March 10.
