Shaping Logan's community facilities - Logan City Council

Last Updated on Monday, 12 March 2012 14:20

Council is developing a Community Infrastructure Strategy to determine the type and range of community facilities required in Logan City as the population grows. Council has seleted a group of people to participate in a Community Reference Group. The people chosen live or work in Logan and volunteer or use facilities such as Sport and recreation clubs, Community organisations eg Multi-cultural, Meals on Wheels, Community Centres, Respite Centres, Major venues - eg: Indoor Sports Centres, Aquatic Venues, Entertainment Centres, Community halls, neighbourhood centres, kindergartens, PCYC, Schools, preschools and tertiary institutions.

This is a significant planning project for community in partnership with Council Officers and council is to be commended for this strategic partnership.

As a longterm committed conservationist and environmentalist I recognise the value that ecosystem services provided by the natural environment - the biodiversity infrastructure - plays an invaluable role in providing essential resources for human health wellbeing and development. In America there is an extensive program to ensure that children have opportunities to experience the natural environment.
