A range of recreational, place making and heritage projects will enhance public spaces across Campbelltown as part of a $26.6 million commitment from the NSW Government’s WestInvest program.
Mayor George Greiss welcomed NSW Treasurer Matt Kean to the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Anna this morning to announce the funding for 11 projects.
“We welcome the NSW Government’s allocation of $26.6 million to our community, and are excited to be delivering these 11 projects across our city,” Cr Greiss said.
“Our community have told us that they want more greenery and active spaces in our public domain that respect and honour the heritage of our region,” he said.
“These projects reflect those community aspirations while increasing connectivity across the city, delivering recreation and lifestyle benefits for our new communities and also embellishing established suburbs.”
“We are looking forward to getting the work underway and delivering these great projects for our city. I’m confident we’ll be hearing further announcements and seeing more projects underway in near future.”
