A high ropes course could be created in Epping North, a splash park built in Craigieburn, and Whittlesea skate park extended under just three of the proposals vying for votes in the state government’s Pick My Project initiative.
More than 70 community groups and residents from across Whittlesea and Hume have submitted ideas for projects they believe will improve their communities, as part of the $30 million initiative.
The community is now being rallied to vote for their top three projects. Projects with the most votes in the state will share in the funding.
More than 40 submissions were received from Hume.
The Hume Health Challenge will give participants access to free group fitness sessions, workshops and health checks and will run for six months.
In Westmeadows, the LifeHouse Church is hoping to secure $175,000 to build Victoria’s first community-based multi-sensory room.
In Whittlesea, close to 30 projects were submitted from across the municipality.
Doreen’s Julie Mackenzie, a masters student in cybercrime law, put forward a proposal to create a cybercrime training program for seniors.
In Whittlesea, the Whittlesea Healthy, Energetic, Active, Relaxed and Together committee is hoping for $200,000 for a network of bike shelters.
Voting closes on September 17.
