Thanks to everyone who got behind the engagement and consultation earlier this year and placed valuable input into how we create Cooee Park.
We heard your visions for this space, and Council and the Touched By Olivia Foundation are committed to delivering a safe, beautiful and thriving community hub for the families in East Moree and we know that the best way to deliver it is in co-creation with those who will use the space.
We want to make Cooee Park a place that is owned, loved and looked after by all, a place to play, gather and celebrate. A fun space where children and youth will feel safe and valued and where families and extended families can enjoy community life together.
To ensure the success of this space we want to work hand in hand with the kids, teens and community members and with local service providers over the next few months to get it right allowing us to deliver the project in its entirety, not in stages.
The input was so great and the vision by all involved to make this park a really safe and beautiful space, as well as the input of what was required to ensure it is successful meant we needed more time and budget to deliver it properly.
Delivering the park to the community remains a priority and Council continues to invest in the masterplan.
So, what next?
After the finalisation of the masterplan, designed by you, we need to secure funding to create this wonderful space, a space where locals can gather and take pride and ownership of.
