The Australian Government continues to partner with local governments across Western Australia to get high-priority community infrastructure off the ground – with construction of the Greek Macedonian Association Clubroom Amenities Upgrade in the City of Stirling complete. 

The $420,000 project will deliver upgraded toilets and car parking – supported by $100,000 from the Australian Government under the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program and $320,000 from the City of Stirling.

Existing toilets were renewed as part of the upgrade, delivering new water-efficient fixtures, new energy-efficient LED lighting, a new efficient hot water unit, and new wall, floor and ceiling finishes.

A new universally accessible toilet (UAT) was added and a new cleaners’ store, with access to all facilities provided from a new corridor.

The project also delivered a universally accessible toilet and an accessibility-compliant car bay in the car park. 

In addition, minor paving works have ensured safer access to the front and rear doors by removing the step at each entry and ensured compliance with current standards.

The building’s electrical distribution board was replaced and rewired to bring it up to current standards.

Quotes attributable to Minister for Regional Development, Local Government and Territories, the Hon Kristy McBain MP:

“This project is a great example of the Australian Government working in partnership to deliver the community infrastructure Western Australians deserve, supporting inclusive participation in local sport.

“It’s fantastic to see work complete on the Greek Macedonian Association Clubroom Amenities Upgrade, with this just one of many projects we’re partnering with the City of Stirling on, as part of over $12.49 million in LRCI funding from the Australian Government.”

Quotes attributable to Federal Member for Perth, the Hon Patrick Gorman MP:

“These fabulous new facilities are a winner for the Greek Macedonian Association, and for our entire community.”

“Supporting local jobs and ensuring this clubroom in Inglewood can cater for community sporting events for years to come.”

“This project supports residents while helping give local sporting participants the best possible opportunities, thanks to high-quality community infrastructure.”

Quotes attributable to City of Stirling Mayor, Mark Irwin:

The Greek Macedonian Club (also known as the Alexander the Great Club) is a community group that provides a focal point for the community to gather whether it is for meals, or the daily card games and coffee.

“These upgrades provide a place for the members to stay socially connected with one another, with the facility also used by other multicultural groups to host significant events and cultural ceremonies.

“We support clubs across the City by investing in infrastructure that will meet current and future community needs, and we appreciate the Australian Government’s support to help deliver this important local project.”
