Petition - Yarrawonga aquatic and recreation centre
28 March 2018
To the Legislative Assembly of Victoria:
This petition of the residents of Yarrawonga and district and other Victorians who visit the area draws to the attention of the house that, as the Shire of Moira will not commit to supporting development of an aquatic and recreation centre (indoor heated pool, multisports stadium and supporting facilities) in Yarrawonga despite:
- A public survey demonstrating strong and widespread support;
- Viability demonstrated by a detailed financial study;
- Tthe accumulation by the shire of liquid reserves of over $30 million and an operating surplus of more than $10 million;
the petitioners request that the Legislative Assembly of Victoria use its influence to encourage Moira Shire Council to give earnest consideration to committing to an aquatic and recreation centre, and to report to the Assembly within six months on progress.
