Community Services is giving notice of a public meeting to explain what they’re doing to transform Flynn Primary into the Flynn Community Centre.
In last year’s budget the ACT Government set aside four million dollars for the conversion of two wings of the former school buildings to a childcare centre. This work will create a new 110 place centre for Alkira and Gumnuts, two existing child care centres in West Belconnen. These two centres need new accommodation because one is located in school premises which are required for enrolments for the 2012 school year, and the accommodation for the other is at the end of its economic life.
In this year’s budget the Government has set aside another four million dollars to upgrade the rest of the school building for a range of community services and facilities. This will create a new centre that provides the same benefits as the other four Regional Community Facilities recently completed in north and south Canberra. This accommodation will help a range of volunteer groups, Non Government Agencies, Community Services Providers and locally based community organisations to deliver an expanded and improved range of services to the local and broader Canberra community.
A meeting to discuss plans and progress will kick off at 6pm on 4 August 2011.
