$550,000 Civic Centre redevelopment

Gympie Regional Council today endorsed a funding bid for a major redevelopment to the Civic Centre that, if successful, will provide for a full light and sound upgrade; refurbishment of the interior foyer, theatre, Fossickers room and Prospectors hall and an upgrade to the courtyard linking the Civic Centre with the senior citizens building.

 The project is expected to cost $550,000 with $350,000 sought from the Federal Government’s Regional Development Australia Fund (RDAF) and an allocation from council of $200,000.
