I am not sure if Korumburra residents are aware that the South Gippsland Shire Council has presented three options for the new ‘Community Hub’.
The Community Hub consists of a new library, Milpara House and others which have not been disclosed/decided.
Option 1 – using the kindergarten building at the top of Victoria Street and acquiring a business and a home at the rear of the business.
Option 2 – using the Birralee building and acquiring three homes at 26-24 and 22 Victoria Street.
Option 3 – purchasing VicTrack land at the railway which goes from the Men’s Shed building up to the open large roofline of the existing shed building.
A small article was in last week’s Sentinel-Times but not much information was given from the council article.
You can go online and look but not everyone has a computer.
Options 1 and 2 are using council disused properties and will affect a business and four family homes.
Option 3 is an area that needs to be purchased but no homes would be affected.
Council is asking for community input to their options. I personally see option 3 at the railway as the best option, but then I am bias as my home is at 22 Victoria Street and is one of the homes to be acquired if option two goes ahead.
The council is holding a “drop in” session for the public on Thursday, November 9, 2pm to 9pm at the old Korumburra Shire offices in Commercial Street.
I am asking the Korumburra residents to look at these options and to give their opinion to council. Thank you.
June Ramsay, Korumburra.
