The City of Greater Geelong has endorsed the Northern ARC Master Plan which will create the long term vision for renewal of the precinct.   Its important for the community to be aware that the project is not fully funded and it will be delivered in stages over the next 15 years.  Stage 1 of the health and wellbeing hub is a new $33 million health facility being funded by the State Government.  Works will commence late 2016 on this facility.  Other future facility upgrades will include a new Waterworld, Centenary Hall and Corio Library facilities. The Northern ARC site will be a significant community landmark and asset for northern Geelong providing residents with a central meeting place and integrated site for arts, recreation, community and health services.

 

Long Term Vision – Moving forward

The new Northern ARC facilities will be delivered on the site over a 15 year period as the older, existing facilities will be decommissioned in stages. This will mean a relatively seamless retention of current facilities while the plan is being delivered and will ensure the needs of the community continue to be met as the master plan vision is realised.  Council has commenced the next planning stage of feasibility and business case, which will be critical to secure future funding from Federal and State Governments.
