The Korumburra Community Hub development is a component of the Korumburra Revitalisation Project (KRP) which aims to reinvigorate the town centre and meet the needs of the community through development of integrated services and the platform to attract investment. The Hub is a Council Priority Project which was first formally endorsed on 26 July 2017 and is identified in the Korumburra Town Centre Framework Plan adopted by Council in October 2013. The Hub has been designed by architects France-Jones Morehen Thorpe (FJMT) and will accommodate;
- Library services
- Milpara Community House services
- Korumburra Senior Citizens
- Korumburra and District Historical Society
- Multi-purpose meeting spaces / consulting rooms
- Kitchen facility for catering purposes
- Wall display space for Rotary Club art exhibitions and other exhibitions / displays
- Future provision for Council services
Funding of $5M has been received from the Victorian Governments Community Infrastructure Loan Scheme and $750,000 from the Living Libraries Infrastructure Fund.
Construction is anticipated to commence late 2021 and be completed early 2023.
Progress Report - October 2022
The development of the Korumburra Community Hub is progressing well despite the various challenges currently facing the construction industry.
Construction is approximately 75% complete with services rough-in completed, external cladding nearing completion, windows being installed and internal finishes (including internal cladding) about to commence. The project is on track for completion in early 2023, with user groups likely able to move in also during early 2023.
