Over the last few years, Council has been considering its future service needs and requirements in relation to a number of key community assets including:
- The two city offices
- The two Libraries
- The Springvale City Hall
The main drivers for the review are:
- Council is still operating out of two administration centres 16 years after amalgamation, with all the inherent inefficiencies and additional costs associated with maintaining two offices
- The Libraries 2015 Strategy demonstrates a clear need to expand and upgrade the community’s library facilities
A new municipal office building, located in the heart of Dandenong on the corner of Walker and Lonsdale streets, is set to be completed in mid-2014.
This project will contribute to the revitalisation of Central Dandenong by attracting new services to the area and offer easy access for the community to a new library, council services and state of-the-art meeting facilities.
