Eversley St Redevelopment

Drysdale and Clifton Springs residents are set to benefit from the development of a community hub at the site of the former childcare centre in Eversley Street, Drysdale.

The recently completed Drysdale Community Hub is already accommodating Drysdale Senior Citizens along with the Festival of Glass, an initiative of the Drysdale & Clifton Springs Community Association Inc.

The hub is particularly important for Drysdale Senior Citizens, who have relocated to the hub from the site of the new Drysdale Library.

Greater Geelong Deputy Mayor Trent Sullivan

Facilities such as the Drysdale Community Hub are vitally important in promoting community connection.

We’ve long understood the importance of connectedness to good mental health and wellbeing.

It is critically important that all members of the community experience a sense of connection, and this hub will go a long way to engaging many people from across Drysdale and Clifton Springs.

Bellarine Ward Councillor Jim Mason

The City has engaged deeply with key stakeholders to ensure the facility would be of benefit to the whole community.

Consultation with the Project Reference Group was an important step in informing the re-design of the facility for broader community use.

This hub will accommodate the needs of community organisations in Drysdale.

Membership of the Project Reference Group included Drysdale Seniors Citizens, Festival of Glass Inc, Drysdale Clifton Springs Curlewis Community Association,

Springdale Community Centre, Drysdale Wines and Cheese Society and Drysdale Quilters.

Council committed $750k in its 2020-2021 budget toward construction.
