The project includes the development of a new signature and state of the art playground that will attract young families to Logan Village and installation of a heritage style church on the Village Green, providing a multi-functional space that could be used for weddings, theatre group, gallery, etc. to deliver in line with an updated master plan, a community gathering and meeting space that reflects Logan Village's rural and heritage character. This project will deliver on a key outcome from the Logan Village Forum.

Project Location: Logan Village

Project Grant Approved: $500,000

Project Total Cost: $1,000,000


Upgrading streetlights in priority eligible area of City of Logan

(Infrastructure Projects Stream)

Project Description: City of Logan proposes to upgrade the lighting at the roundabouts at Homestead Drive/Poinciana Drive and Homestead Drive/Coachwood Drive, including a section of Homestead Drive that links to the new development at Flagstone (shopping centre precinct). Due to growth and a changing footprint within the eligible area, a new footpath has been installed along this section linking the proposed new shopping precinct with the existing school in a need of pedestrian lighting. The project will install LED lighting with smart controls to bring energy efficiency and ability to manage and control them remotely as key benefits to Council and to broader community.
