The Waroona Community Precinct development is another step closer to fruition thanks to additional funding from the Alcoa Waroona Sustainability Fund.


The Alcoa Waroona Sustainability Fund Advisory Committee voted to increase its financial support from $450,000 to $1 million at its recent meeting.


Shire President Mike Walmsley said additional funding was sought to continue to achieve the community’s vision for the Precinct, which had been hampered by cost escalations impacting the construction industry.


“We really appreciate the added support from Alcoa through the Alcoa Waroona Sustainability Fund as it enables us to keep the momentum going for what is a transformational project for Waroona,” Shire President Mike Walmsley said.


The Precinct has been designed with the aim to revitalise the town centre, acting as a vibrant, central hub for residents and an attractive ‘stop and stay’ destination for visitors to the area. Civil works have now begun on the highly anticipated development, which will include a skate park, pump track, play equipment, picnic areas, arts projects and landscaping.


In addition to the Alcoa Waroona Sustainability Fund and the Shire, the Precinct has received funding from the Federal Government, the State Government through the Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries, Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development and Lotterywest and the Lions Club of Waroona.


The Alcoa Waroona Sustainability Fund is administered by the Shire of Waroona in partnership with Alcoa, with annual contributions based on the previous year’s production of the Wagerup Refinery.
