A re-elected McGowan Labor Government will invest $2.4 million towards an upgrade of the Norm Sadler Pavilion and facilities for local teams at Maida Vale Reserve.
The funding will assist the Shire of Kalamunda to progress $5.9 million of priority works as part of the Maida Vale Reserve Master Plan.
The $2.4 million commitment to upgrade and extend the Norm Sadler Pavilion includes additional change rooms and refurbishment of existing change rooms, a first aid room, umpires room, public toilets, storage space, and spectator seating.
While parts of the pavilion are in good condition, the current change room facilities are outdated, limited in numbers and do not fully support current operations.
The Maida Vale Reserve Masterplan priority works program also includes upgrades to lighting and power supply at the facility. The Shire of Kalamunda recently received $148,333 to fund the installation of floodlighting at Maida Vale Reserve through the Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Fund.
Comments attributed to Premier Mark McGowan:
“This $2.4 million commitment will provide a boost to local teams who use Maida Vale Reserve, ensuring they can grow and keep up with demand.
“Over the past four years, my Government has invested in upgrades to facilities for grassroots sport clubs in Perth’s outer suburbs and across the regions.
“Sport is such an important part of local communities, and it’s vital that we continue to improve facilities in our growing suburbs.”
Comments attributed to Member for Forrestfield Stephen Price:
“This is a big win for local sporting teams, in particular Kalamunda United Football Club and Kalamunda Rangers.
“Maida Vale Reserve is hugely popular with local families but clearly some of the facilities here are not adequate for our local teams.
‘The upgrades will deliver huge improvements to change room facilities and much-needed storage space for equipment.
“I’m proud to support our local sporting teams and ensure they have a bright future.”
