The Morrison Government is investing $3 million to build a new state-of-the-art Community Hub for the Marino Community.
Minister for Finance and Senator for South Australia, Simon Birmingham said the new hub would be a major boost for the Marino community.
“The existing Marino Community Hall is in need of replacement, having been built more than 50 years ago when the local area was still very much a developing part of Adelaide’s south-western suburbs,” Senator Birmingham said.
“Marino is a vibrant community and thanks to our strong economy $3 million will be provided for a new centre to be constructed on the existing site.”
Liberal candidate for Boothby, Dr Rachel Swift, said Marino is a tight-knit community and the Community Hub is deeply embedded in the community.
“I’m thrilled that the Morrison Government has been able to deliver this project which I know is much needed by the local community,” Dr Swift said.
“The new Marino Community Hub will include an art gallery and studio, café, performance area and meeting spaces. The Hub is used day-in, day-out by local community groups and this project will help the Marino community to go from strength-to-strength in the future.
“I’ve fought to secure funding for this project because I’ve listened to the local community, can see the need for it and know this Community Hub will be extremely well utilised.
“The Liberal State Member for Black, David Spiers, has been a strong advocate for this much-needed funding and I was delighted to be with him on Sunday at a barbecue with the local community to announce the funding of $3 million.
“I also thank Mayor Kris Hanna and the City of Marion for their engagement on this project. I look forward to working with them to ensure its successful delivery.”
The Morrison Government continues to deliver for the residents of Boothby and this announcement is part of our plan to build a strong economy and a stronger future.
