To ensure the new track gets the support from residents that it needs, could as many of us as possible drop the Council a line supporting it?!?! We are now in the community consultation phase of the development, and we need as much positive feedback/encouragement as possible.
It would also be great if constructive questions could be asked such as "Why are the soccer pitches getting lighting and there is no provision for the track to have lighting"? and "Is the pavilion just for the soccer club or is it for both of us as it looks to be orientated towards the soccer pitches".
MLAC recently had contact from the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council about the proposed IAAF standard all-weather track to be built at Civic Reserve, Mornington. We have been advised that there will be 2 drop-in sessions at the Civic Reserve Recreation Centre, 350 Dunns Road Mornington on the following dates:
Tuesday 14th November from 3pm-7pm, and
Saturday 18th November from 10am-2pm.
The Mt Martha Soccer Club will be joining us with 4 senior sized soccer pitches to be constructed at the same time. We will most likely share a pavillion, which will be built at some stage after the initial build. At this stage, lighting is only proposed for the soccer pitches, which is something we as a club, along with Mornington Peninsula Athletics Club will need to address.
The build will hopefully begin before the end of the financial year. Which will mean we wont have access to the track until the 2019/20 season. However, the senior club MPAC will be able to move in immediately, as they train all yea...
