AS they did in Tuggeranong last weekend, the Canberra Liberals have today (September 20) announced plans to build a new, $12.7 million indoor multipurpose sports complex if they win the ACT election next month.
With six indoor basketball courts and a large multipurpose space, Liberals leader Alistair Coe says the Gungahlin facility will host a variety of other sporting codes including tennis, badminton, table tennis, martial arts and dance groups.
He says the new sports infrastructure project would not only deliver world-class sports facilities for local residents, but it would also provide more jobs for Canberra and help rebuild our local economy.
It’s been a big weekend for Gungahlin with the Libs yesterday promising to build a multi-cultural and community centre for staging multi-cultural events and celebrations, performances, festivals, community forums and art exhibitions. He’s pledged $7 million to build it.
Artists desperately awaiting results of the ACT government’s current round of arts activities grants have been alarmed by an enigmatic email from ArtsACT today (October 26), suggesting that the grants may not go ahead.
