Community Asked for Feedback on Gallipoli Park Pump Track and Recreation Development
Council has launched the public feedback phase of the Gallipoli Park Pump Track and Recreation Development and people are being encouraged to fill out the online survey and visit Council’s dedicated information page to get full details of the project.
Council this week carried out a letterbox drop to residents on streets adjacent to the southern section of Gallipoli Park, where it’s proposed the development will be located, and installed a number of information signs at the park.
As part of the project, Council proposes to install an asphalt pump track, multi-use court, exercise equipment, covered picnic tables, landscaping and beautification.
The dedicated page can be accessed at www.mountisa.qld.gov.au/gallipoli-park, where there are also links to the Fact Sheet and Community Survey, a Frequently Asked Questions section, and a concept image of the development.
The survey is anticipated to be open until Sunday, September 6.
Mayor Danielle Slade said the public consultation phase is a vital part of the project and residents are being asked to have their say by completing the survey.
“People’s feedback will help to contribute to shaping the development and guide Council on decision-making and future planning, so if people have any thoughts or opinions on this project, then I encourage them to visit the Gallipoli Park page and fill out the survey,” Cr Slade said.
“If people have any questions about this project, the Frequently Asked Questions section is an excellent place to start before they take the survey.”
“Some of the topics covered by the FAQs include what the project proposes, why Gallipoli Park was chosen as the location of the pump track, what security measures have been taken, and what a pump track is.”
Councillor Peta MacRae, who looks after the Sports and Recreation portfolio, said Council is really excited to have received such a significant amount of money to give the young people of Mount Isa a state-of-the-art recreation facility.
“With the global trend of moving away from organised sport, we still need facilities for people to exercise and gain new skills and that is what that project will achieve,” Cr MacRae said.
“It would be great if as many people as possible could visit the Gallipoli Park page and give feedback on the project.”
The $895,000 project is 100 percent funded under the Queensland Government’s Active Community Infrastructure Funding Stream.
