05 May 2020 5:40 PM

During this difficult time, the City of Kalamunda continues to deliver slated developments, infrastructure improvements and move forward new projects to meet community demand and expectations.

Mayor Margaret Thomas said Council and City staff have acted decisively and quickly to implement measures to reduce the impact of the global pandemic locally while continuing to meet ‘business as usual’ obligations and timelines where possible.

“I’m so impressed by the can-do attitude of our teams,” Cr Thomas said. “Staff are continually finding innovative ways to deliver outcomes and keep project timelines on track while adhering to the necessary health advice to ensure personal and public safety.

“We understand the importance of balancing the current need to stay safe, while preparing for the road out by ensuring City-led projects stay on track to meet the demands of our community now and into the future.”

Current projects are tracking well including the installation of the Stirk Park Gross Pollutant Trap with completion expected this month while work on the new Kalamunda Community Centre, at Jorgensen Park, is progressing with retaining walls underway and main construction works completed by December 2020.

“With all of the uncertainty right now, I am so pleased to report this flagship project is moving ahead on time and budget,” Cr Thomas said. “Council is also looking at future population growth within the City by making plans that target these areas and asking for community feedback so we are ready.”

As such, the City is focused on growing demand for recreational and sporting infrastructure and public space releasing plans, including requests for funding support, for upgrades and improvements to Maida Vale Reserve, Scott Reserve, Hartfield Park, Ray Owen Reserve and Sporting Complex.

The City’s road upgrades and improvement projects are also on track with a program of works continuing to roll out in the Forrestfield Industrial Area and Cell 9 Wattle Grove along with many other City-wide road improvements to ensure ongoing community safety and amenity.
