Green light for Karinya Reserve upgrade
A new soccer pitch and clubrooms will be built at Karinya Reserve at Eden Hills as part of a joint project between City of Mitcham, the Sturt Lions Football Club and Federal Government.
Under the project, a new artificial turf soccer pitch will be installed along with a new two-storey clubroom facility at the eastern end of the existing soccer pitch.
Following community consultation in July, Council endorsed an amended Community Land Management Plan in July and granted a 10-year lease to the Sturt Lions Football Club for the proposed clubroom and use of the artificial soccer pitch within their approved hours of use.
Work on the project is expected to commence in November.
The project has been funded by a $2 million Federal Government grant and contribution from the Sturt Lions ($150,000) and City of Mitcham ($700,000) as part of its 2020-21 Annual Business Plan and Budget.
