With funding commitments from the federal Labor government, the City is on track to deliver a full-featured Aquatic and Recreation Centre (AARC) in Alkimos.
Thank you to everyone who contacted their local politicians and candidates to advocate for this project, as well as those who registered their support for the AARC to help the City attract this funding and participants in the community engagement.
Leading up to the Federal election on 21 May 2022 more than 2,000 people became supporters and signed up to the project to receive updates and news.
More than 10,000 people viewed the AARC project page on the City’s Your Say Hub, between December 2021 January 2022 and 1,500 votes and comments made about the preliminary AARC concept.
This community input is being used now during the detailed design phase.
Construction is scheduled to begin in late 2024 and in the meantime, further community engagement will be carried out on the design.
Full details about the AARC are on the City’s Your Say page, which will be regularly updated as the project progresses.
