from the front page of the Glen Eira News August 2006
"During the community consultation it was clear that the community favoured the retention of both the Carnegie and East Bentleigh swim centres and although Council has not formed any pre-determined view, its preference is to retain aquatic facilities at both Carnegie and East Bentleigh"
One of the issues I feel needs to be resolved in Glen Eira is the uncertain future of the Carnegie Pool.
At present councils only committment is it provide funding ( at least 210k this year ) to keep it open while GESAC is being built down at Bentleigh .
What happens after that? It will either be closed or updated.
In last years election I campaigned strongly for a new modern seasonal facility that would compliment Bentleigh.
In the new year I will be pressing for council to plan for this future.
