Broadford Living and Learning Centre is set for a major upgrade that will see the multi-purpose building transformed into a modern and vibrant community hub.
After a series of community consultation sessions, designs for the upgrade have been finalised for the works at 162 High St.
The project will see the existing building reconfigured by upgrading the internal floor plan so it can deliver a host of community services.
Features of the upgrade include a new flexible open space, multi-use office space and waiting area, as well as four large multi-purpose rooms, upgrades to the existing toilets, a new open-plan kitchen with servery, internal re-carpeting and painting, an e-Learning room and an outdoor play area for children.
The $565000 project is scheduled to start soon, with works expected to be finished by October.
Mitchell Shire Mayor Rhonda Sanderson said it was an exciting time for the Broadford community.
‘‘This upgrade will transform the Broadford Living and Learning Centre into a modern and vibrant building which can flexibly respond to the changing needs and priorities of the expanding Broadford community,’’ she said.
