Charlton Park 2020 Closer to Construction
One of regional Victoria’s most anticipated projects, the Charlton Park Multipurpose Facility, is one step closer to being built, following Buloke Shire Council's awarding of the construction contract.
Councillors awarded the $4.2 million project to MKM Constructions at a Special Council meeting last night.
In a statement released by the Council, they said: "The project is a wonderful example of all levels of government and the community working together.
"The Charlton Park 2020 committee have been actively involved in fundraising for this project since 2008, raising more than $1 million and have been heavily involved in the initial design of the project.
"The new facility will replace all the disjointed buildings with one large building catering for football, netball, hockey, cricket, harness racing, gym, Agricultural & Pastoral Society and community activities."
