A total of $1.2 million dollars will be invested in Division 8 for streetscape renewals and sporting infrastructure thanks to Queensland Government’s $100 million South East Queensland Community Stimulus Program.
Sunshine Coast Council Division 8 Councillor Jason O’Pray said $700,000 had been allocated for improvements at the popular North Shore Multi-Sports Complex.
“The funding will go towards constructing new change rooms and an amenity block, which I’m sure our sports stars will warmly welcome,” Cr O’Pray said.
“It’s infrastructure like this which encourages a healthy region and provides opportunities and possibilities for our rising sports stars.
The Mudjimba project is part of a $9.03 million funding injection to kick-start 16 projects worth more than $22 million across the Sunshine Coast to improve parks, streetscapes and sporting facilities, provide new playgrounds and generate local jobs sooner than planned.
The Queensland Government funding is in addition to the $268 million worth of projects announced in Sunshine Coast Council’s 2021/2022 budget and is matched by $13.4 million council funding to deliver these projects across the Sunshine Coast over the next three years.
Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said the upgrades would provide important infrastructure and facilities to meet our community’s needs.
“The projects, which will be delivered through this funding package, will provide widespread benefit to residents across our region,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“This funding will enable these projects to be delivered sooner which is a great outcome for our community while also providing further stimulus to our local economy by creating work across a variety of trades and services.”
