New Design for Coolum Civic Centre

A milestone for Coolum central meeting place

Sunshine Coast Council has unveiled the designs for a major upgrade to Coolum Civic Centre and surrounding parkland, and welcomed funding support from a local Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank.

Mayor Mark Jamieson said unveiling the designs marked a major milestone in the upgrade of the prominent 2.6 hectare district-level Jack Morgan Park.

“It’s an exciting day for Coolum, as we show off the final designs for Stage One of the Jack Morgan Park and announce Bendigo Bank’s $50,000 contribution to the life of the project,” Mayor Jamieson said.

“It’s fantastic to see an NSX-listed company giving back to the local community and contributing to a project which means so much to locals – we’re lucky to have community-minded organisations like Bendigo Bank on the Sunshine Coast.”

Division 9 Councillor Stephen Robinson said Stage 1 of the upgrade project would benefit visitors to Coolum Civic Centre and Coolum Library, and the wider community.

“The community has formally identified this park as the civic heart of town and this project will transform it into a safe, functional, high quality public open space that is comfortable, accessible and visually appealing,” Cr Robinson said.

“Locally, this project is going to be one of the most important Council initiatives since the Coolum Streetscape project – it will revitalise and reactivate this popular park.

“Works will include internal and external renovations to the civic centre including the foyer, toilets, kitchen, meeting rooms and entry areas.

“The access road and car parking areas will be improved, new footpaths will link the library to the civic centre, and new outdoor seating areas will be constructed. The upgrade also includes new trees, car park lighting, bike racks, way-finding signage, drainage and kerbing.

Manager of the Marcoola Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank, Judy Blackall said the decision to partner with council on the project was really one made by the North Shore community.

“In 2012, we hosted community groups at the North Shore Community Centre who told us what they wanted to see for the future of this special part of the coast. They listed a number of projects including this one about to get underway at Jack Morgan Park – our largest contribution to a single project to date,” Judy said.

“I’m proud to say this is the second project we’ve partnered with Sunshine Coast Council on, with the completion of the Marcoola Streetscape in 2014 being the first. Our branch was born from the dream of our community wanting its own bank. We look forward to working closely with council in the future as more locals realise that by banking with us the more we can give back, giving our communities a real say in their own future,” she added.

Fast Facts

  • Construction on the first stage of Jack Morgan Park Upgrade will start in May and is expected to be completed by August 2015, weather permitting.
  • The Coolum Civic Centre, Coolum Library and Coolum Community Centre will remain open and fully operational during all works with traffic control in place where required.
  • The upgrade and revitalisation of Jack Morgan Park is the latest stage of the Coolum Village Masterplan (2010).  Council consulted with the community as part of the Masterplan’s development.
  • A reconfiguration of the existing access road and car parking area will include a safer ‘drop off’ zone for vehicle passengers. It is worth noting the current number of car parking spaces within the precinct will not reduce as a result of these works.
  • Additional stages of Jack Morgan Park Upgrade are planned for 2016-2019, subject to available funding. Once the overall upgrade of Jack Morgan Park is completed, it will be alternative outdoor recreation and event area to Tickle Park with the ability to host performances, street theatre and even a community garden.
