MENORA and Yokine will benefit from collaborative projects by WA Labor and the City of Stirling, candidate Simon Millman said.
Mr Millman said a WA Labor Government would provide $221,000 towards three local projects.
The funding will come from WA Labor’s Local Projects, Local Jobs Fund, which is designed to provide communities with funds to build community infrastructure.
The projects, which will be jointly funded by the City of Stirling and a Labor State Government, are external upgrades at Alexander Park Tennis Club in Menora ($100,000 of state funding), the Flinders Wellington Sump Public Open Space ($80,000) and upgrading the cricket wickets at the Yokine Regional Open Space ($41,000)
Mr Millman, Labor’s candidate for Mt Lawley, said the Alexander Park Tennis Club “will receive extensive upgrades to the clubroom and to the external surrounds to improve the amenity for the community”.
“We will see two additional cricket practice wickets constructed at the Yokine Regional Open Space, and the Flinders Wellington Sump will be converted into a local public park,” he said.
“I congratulate the City of Stirling for pursuing these innovative projects on behalf of the residents of Mt Lawley.” Mr Millman said.
