My further thoughts on the Keysborough South Community Hub

Likely if residents ask for it
NoIdeaIdea Description
1Maker’s Space (Art and Craft Area)There is a lot of discussion going on within Council that one of the smaller meeting rooms would be better used as an arts and craft area/wet area but whether it will be or not will likely depend on community interest
2Co-working spaces Co-working spaces offer free power-point access, hotdesks, ability to converse and hold casual meetings and WiFi – there is enough space in the community lounge area for residents to get co-working spaces installed if they ask for them
3Library BranchUnlikely given that the new Springvale Library is just being built and a library branch would increase the cost of the Keysborough South Community Hub from the current estimated $10-$15 million dollars to about $30 – 35 million dollars.
4Library Service more that just drop off and pick upThat said, the Keysborough South Community Hub could be built with a more significant library offering if residents ask for it
5More Community Activity SpaceI have already had some feedback that given the changing demographic that more community space and less children’s space would be a good idea
6Public Art To give hub individual character
7CafeThe reason that a Council hasn’t put in a cafe at this stage is doubt that it will be economically viable. So if you want to suggest it would be best if you address that question in your submission
8Green Star rating better than 5 Green StarCurrently the building is planned to be 5 Green Star but community feedback will determine whether it is built to be more sustainable than that like 5 Green Star Zero Net Emissions or 6 Green Star
9Bigger space for community amphitheatreSome residents have told me that there isn’t enough performing space
10Particular playground equipmentPlayground equipment is in flux so if you have particular equipment you want it is a good time to ask
11Electic charging stationBeing discussed internally already but currently no certainty
