COOLUM’S Civic Centre will receive a makeover thanks to the local Bendigo Bank branch.

Sunshine Coast Council today unveiled the designs for the upgrade to the centre and surrounding parkland.

Mayor Mark Jamieson said unveiling the designs marked a major milestone in the upgrade of the prominent 2.6 hectare district-level Jack Morgan Park.

 

Fast facts

Construction on the first stage of Jack Morgan Park Upgrade will start in May and is expected to be completed by August 2015, weather permitting.

The Coolum Civic Centre, Coolum Library and Coolum Community Centre will remain open and fully operational during all works with traffic control in place where required.

The upgrade and revitalisation of Jack Morgan Park is the latest stage of the Coolum Village Masterplan (2010). Council consulted with the community as part of the Masterplan’s development.

A reconfiguration of the existing access road and car parking area will include a safer ‘drop off’ zone for vehicle passengers. It is worth noting the current number of car parking spaces within the precinct will not reduce as a result of these works.

Additional stages of Jack Morgan Park Upgrade are planned for 2016-2019, subject to available funding. Once the overall upgrade of Jack Morgan Park is completed, it will be alternative outdoor recreation and event area to Tickle Park with the ability to host performances, street theatre and even a community garden.
