Regional communities in O’Connor are set to receive a boost with 3 new local infrastructure and community projects, as part of a $207 million investment under Round 4 of the Coalition Government’s highly successful Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF).
Federal Member for O’Connor Rick Wilson said the community-based projects were a positive investment in the region’s future.
“This is a fantastic outcome, with three projects sharing in $7.9 million under this latest round of funding, ” Mr Wilson said.
“These include $5.27 million for construction of the Ravensthorpe Cultural Precinct, $2.1 million for upgrades to Jerramungup swimming pool and $542,000 for refurbishment of Boxwood Hill Combined Sports Club facilities, which will drive economic growth and local jobs at a time we need them most.
“Regional communities in O’Connor are continuing to show amazing spirit and strength as they support each other through these tough times and I am glad to see this latest round of BBRF will provide much-needed support at such a crucial time.
“We have seen outstanding outcomes from the first three rounds of the BBRF – creating jobs, boosting local economies and growing confidence in regional communities as a great place to live, work and invest.
