Construction has started on the first stage of a new multi-purpose depot at Jimboomba.
The Logan City Council facility will include a workshop, storage shed and a large space for community use.
The six-hectare site, between Abell Road and the Mt Lindesay Highway, has long-term potential to support a range of Council operations as further stages are developed.
Mayor Darren Power said the new depot would respond to the needs of the growing south-western parts of the City of Logan.
“There is no doubt our city’s growth is happening between Jimboomba and Park Ridge, including the surrounding suburbs of Yarrabilba, Flagstone, Logan Reserve and Greenbank,” Councillor Power said.
“It makes sense to provide space for essential Council services where they will be needed to support our community in the future.”
Division 9 Councillor Scott Bannan said he was excited about the site’s potential.
“We’ll start to see savings in both time and money for ratepayers as the depot develops,” Cr Bannan said.
“The community space in the first stage is a win for local organisations who work so hard to make life better in our area.”
The project received $3.5 million in funding from the Queensland Government’s South East Queensland Community Stimulus Program.
State Member for Logan, Linus Power said the community will greatly benefit from this new multi-purpose depot.
“The Logan community is rapidly growing and our government’s investment in this project will ensure we can deliver the jobs and services our community needs,” Mr Power said.
Stage one is due to be completed later this year.
