The rapidly growing Truganina community is getting a library and community hub thanks to support from the Andrews Labor Government.
Member for Tarneit Sarah Connolly today announced on behalf of Local Government Minister Shaun Leane that Wyndham City Council will receive $4.9 million towards the Truganina Community Centre from the Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund and Living Libraries Infrastructure Program.
The Truganina Community Centre project is designed to deliver a safe, welcoming, and sustainable hub for a range of community services, including kindergarten and maternal and child health services, consulting rooms, community meeting spaces and library services.
The Growing Suburbs Fund helps Melbourne’s rapidly developing interface and peri-urban councils deliver high-quality facilities for their communities and has now invested more than $38.3 million to make 25 projects possible across Wyndham.
Since 2015 the Victorian Government has invested more than $42.6 million into 109 Living Libraries projects, allowing a total investment of $297.2 million for new libraries, upgrades to existing facilities and library vans.
