An Albanese Labor Government and a Malinauskas State Labor Government will work together with the Marion Council to redevelop the Marino Community Hall, revitalising this precinct to create a modern community meeting place with a café, gallery, community facilities and performance areas.
This project will receive $500,000 from a Malinauskas Labor Government, $2.5m from an Albanese Labor Government and the remainder from Marion Council.
The Marino Hall currently provides space for various community groups including for art and sewing, dance, martial arts, yoga and fitness and church groups.
By working collaboratively across three levels of government, we will deliver the up-to-date community facility that locals deserve.
According to the design already completed by the Marion Council, Labor’s redevelopment will also include:
• an art gallery and studio space.
• a café,
• a new performance area,
• upgraded meeting spaces; and,
• an expanded car park.
Importantly, this facility will be accessible for the entire community.
Once completed, the hall will support a range of programs and will provide the Marino community with a brand new space capable of delivering a range of community programs.
Attributable to Louise Miller-Frost, Labor Candidate for Boothby
“The Marino Hall hosts a range of organisations and events, but it has been neglected, with the Liberals failing to take real action to provide residents with a modern and fit-for-purpose facility.
“Everyone in this community knows that we need better facilities for events, community gatherings and artistic performances.
“This investment in a new Marino Community Hall is the kind of real action I will deliver for Boothby.
Attributable to Catherine King, Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development
“Labor knows that infrastructure isn’t just roads and rail, it also includes investing in the facilities and the social infrastructure that delivers a better life to Australians.
“Talking to Louise and the Marion Council, I know how big a difference this investment will make for the local community.
“All of Labor’s infrastructure investments are about delivering a better life for locals, this is a prime example of just that.”
Attributable to Alex Dighton, Labor Candidate for the state seat of Black
“Recent challenges have highlighted, more than ever, the importance of resilient, tight-knit communities.
“The new hall will be a space where local residents, clubs and organisations can share their passions and pastimes.
“It will also be somewhere where people can come together to work on projects that will further strengthen the local community.”
