GESAC - local access must be ensured for new basketball facilties.
Probably one of the most challenging and important issues that Council has dealt with this year has been on the weekend allocation and usage for basketball at our great new indoor facilties at the soon to be opened Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre (GESAC). see previous posts.
An article appeared in last Saturdays Age (Nov 12) - links bottom right. In responding to that article and to quote from an email sent to Councillors and Admin yesterday-
"Certainly re the Saturday Age article I stand by and am indeed proud of all my efforts so far (and will continue to do so) in advocating strongly on behalf of the 1400+ families and kids who would have potentially not been playing at the new GESAC facilities under the original offer. Also endorse Jim and Franks comments in this article re addressing this important community need".
Whilst I feel this issue has been unresolved for far too long, I am hopeful that a solution will be reached very soon that will be inclusive of our local association and clubs.
