Survey favours hall restoration
Community feedback on the Mullumbimby Civic Centre and Memorial Hall favours retaining the existing uses of the centre and restoration of the hall as a multi-purpose facility allowing wider community use.
This is the result of a survey held over recent months by Geolink consultants who last Saturday took their findings to the streets for public appraisal.
The precinct includes the hall and adjoining park, the old council offices and chambers, the CWA rooms, the Rural Fire Service premises, Cook Pioneer Centre and War Widows cottage, plus an area of Crown Reserve.
Matthew Wood of Geolink said the next phase in the process would be to finalise the report which would then go on public exhibition and ultimately consideration by council.
"Overwhelmingly the community wants the hall to be refurbished," said Mr Wood.
"It has good acoustics and social recognition in the community."
