Next week Lismore will celebrate the completion of almost $700,000 worth of improvements to local services and recreational facilities.
The public is invited to attend an official opening celebration with Page MP Janelle Saffin and Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell at Lismore City Hall next Tuesday 15 May at 10am.
It will include an excerpt from Beautiful Bones, NORPA’s new dance work, which recently premiered in the newly refurbished NORPA studios.
There will also be a tour of the three facilities: the Lismore City Hall dance studio, Stage Two of Nesbitt Park and the Lismore City Library.
Lismore City Council GM Gary Murphy said the projects have provided an important boost to the Lismore’s services and facilities.
‘We are just putting the final touches on Nesbitt Park which is a fantastic, newly developed all-abilities recreational facility featuring a liberty swing, a high-quality one-kilometre running track and an all-access carpark, and we are also looking forward to the construction of the all-access amenities block to begin shortly,’ Mr Murphy said.
‘The refurbishment of the Lismore City Hall dance studio has been completed, making it the only facility of its type in the Lismore area. Also, the Lismore Library has been upgraded to feature a new access ramp.
‘We would like to thank the federal government for supporting these initiatives through the Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program (RLCIP) and the Australian Government Accessible Communities Grant. We also thank Variety NSW for their valuable contribution.’
