The Northam Shire Council has committed $850,000 in the 2017/2018 budget for the development of the Northam Youth Precinct.
The area will provide greater social and recreational opportunities for young people.
Based on community feedback Council endorsed the selected precinct site at Jubilee Reserve on the corner of Peel Terrace and Chidlow Street, adjacent to McDonald’s.
Renowned skate park and youth space creators Convic, have been engaged to create a preliminary design centred on feedback from the community.
Community members will have the opportunity to view the draft concept designs once completed.
