A new community space for St Marys is expected to get the tick of approval.
The development application for the St Marys Community Space will go before the Break O'Day Council at its July meeting on Monday.
The multi-purpose outdoor recreation area would be located on the corner of Groom and Story streets and would include a skate park, bike track, swing set, fitness equipment, and a barbeque and picnic area.
The project has been recommended for approval by council planning consultant Rebecca Green.
At the council meeting Councillor Kylie Wright will put forward a notice of motion for the project to be included in the Drought Communities Programme.
The council was a recipient of the $1 million in Drought Communities Programme funding in March.
The funding aims to support communities in drought stricken areas of the country through providing funds for infrastructure projects, boosting employment, and addressing the needs of the community.
In her submission in support of the motion Cr Wright said the program specifically names bike parks, skate parks, and parks as areas that could qualify for funding.
"The St Marys Community Space is an ideal project to nominate to be funded in the Fingal Valley," she said.
The project has been underway since 2016 with fundraising and grant funding making up the bulk of the association's funds.
"I believe it would be appropriate for council to add this project to the Drought Assistance Funding Program application, to show support to the community in St Marys, and beyond, who have been working hard to enable this project to happen," she said.
