CASTERTON’S Kelpie Interpretative Centre has been prioritised by the Glenelg Shire Council as a top three project for future funding.
The top three projects were decided by the council early last week and included the $3.25 million Portland Geothermal System Redevelopment; the $3 million Portland Foreshore Projects, which will provide places for community events and festivals, designated youth activity spaces, a foreshore playground, picnic and barbecue areas and board walk; and the $2.5 million Casterton Kelpie Interpretive Centre, which is expected to attract an estimated 10,000 additional visitors to the town each year.
The list was made public at a public launch of the shire’s top 10 priority projects document, which was prepared to ensure that the council’s and community resources were used most efficiently
The document was launched by Premier Denis Napthine, Glenelg Shire Mayor John Northcott and other significant Victorian Cabinet Ministers in Portland last Friday.
