Thanks for your input on the concept plans
The community engagement period on the concept plans for the Dordaak Kepap (pronounced dor-dark kep-up, meaning Place of Living Waters) Library and Youth Innovation Hub in Landsdale is now closed.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the engagement.
Hundreds of ratepayers, residents and community groups visited the City’s Your Say page, viewed the concept plans on our interactive map and provided feedback on the plans, as well as completing a community survey on preferred services, programs and activities to run there.
The City is now analysing this feedback, which will feed into the detailed design phase starting in November.
Although the engagement phase is now closed you are welcome to review what people told us about the allocated floor spaces within the facility and outside building architecture via our on-line interactive concept plan.
In May 2019, Council endorsed a draft concept which identified 15 The Broadview, Landsdale as a suitable site for a library and youth innovation hub. The design required for the facility should be functional and versatile to meet the needs of the community now, and in the future, and is envisaged to include:
- Multi-functional spaces and meeting rooms with audio-visual capability;
- Digital and technical hub;
- Study spaces;
- A children’s area;
- Activity room and resources such as craft and sewing facilities;
- Staff work room and back of house area; and
- Public amenities including a changing places / accessible adult change facility.
The Youth Innovation Hub should meet the contemporary needs of young people, with an emphasis on developing a range of new skills that could progress to employment while also delivering a service offering similar to a youth centre. It is envisaged the Youth Innovation Hub could provide the following services or programs:
- Recording studio for music and podcasting;
- Gaming room and virtual reality;
- Multi-functional spaces for performance, events or education programs;
- Kitchen for cooking, education programs or demonstration events;
- Space for robotics and coding;
- Access to computers for design learning;
- Access to programs for audio and video production; and
- Meeting rooms and chill out spaces.
