A public meeting is being held tomorrow (Wednesday) to discuss future uses of the Casino Drill Hall.
The meeting will be held at the Casino Community and Cultural Centre in Walker Street, from 5.30pm.
It follows a recent decision by Richmond Valley Council to buy the old drill hall and surrounding land for $340,000.
The council had been negotiating with the Commonwealth Government since March after it was announced last year that the Department of Defence wanted to auction the land.
That announcement prompted an angry response from RSL representatives and community groups, and resulted in a number of public meetings and deputations to politicians.
The council is hosting tomorrow’s meeting to provide community members with an opportunity to put forward their ideas for the hall.
The building was purchased to be used primarily as a military history museum, while remaining available for other community uses.
Originally built by the Light Horse Brigade in 1908 on land near the post office in Barker St, the hall was relocated in the mid 1930s to its current location on sloping land to the south of the Richmond River on the Summerland Way.
Light Horse regiments from Casino, Tenterfield and Kyogle were based at Casino and used the hall for training.
