Election promises for funding continue to fly in, with Casey Liberal Candidate Aaron Violi promising $3.8 million for upgrades to Belgrave Recreational Reserve if the Liberal party returns to government.
The proposed funding was announced by Mr Violi at an event held by the club on Thursday 21 April and will be used for a new pavilion and cricket nets at the reserve located at 1A Reserve Rd, Belgrave.
Mr Violi said the funding would provide a permanent home for Belgrave sports and community groups.
“It’s great to see the hard work of the local community paying off with this investment in the future of Belgrave,” he said.
“I’m proud to be a part of the Liberal team delivering for the East. If elected in May, I’ll continue to give my all for our communities.”
24 local teams — including 10 women’s teams — will use the facilities once completed.
Belgrave Football Netball Club committee member Mel Davey said the project “will be a game-changer for our local sporting clubs and the local community.”
“It’s great that Aaron has listened to what we need and delivered this commitment for Belgrave.” she said.
The Shadow Minister for Infrastructure was contacted for comment.
