Carlo 1, 2 & 3 Upgrade Project Update
Although the 2020 season is currently suspended due to the Corona Virus, we have been working quietly in the back ground towards the Carlo 1, 2 & 3 Upgrade Project.
The history that we all know.....
The Carlo Ovals are currently the worst in Parramatta LGA for playing surface and lighting and the 5th worst for club house and facilities. The grounds have; no irrigation or drainage causing frquent closure from flooding. The lighting of only 20LUX instead of a minimum standard of 50LUX for training and 100LUX for games.
More good news....
In February 2020 we have secured a $45,000 Cummunity Building partnership Grant from the NSW Governemnt through the Office of our local member and state Treasurer, Dominic Perrottet towards the flood lighting component of the overall project.
These additional funds will be combined with our federal grant (below).
Formation of COUSC (Carlingford Oval UpGrade SupCommittee) with members from our club who have civil works experience, representatives from Crickets NDCA, Carlingford High School, AgEnviro sopil Scientists, Council and FNSW. If you have any experience in any areas of civil works, planning or management or legal etc and are interested in joining COUSC please email Rohan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A bubbler has been installed by Parramatta Council on the southern side of Roselea Oval (Christiaan, this one is for you).
An updated lighting design has been produced by council which will light the entire flat playing area beyond the existing ground positions.
We will keep you updated as the project progresses. We will also occasionally ask for your support to rally the troops and engage in project promotion activities, so when you hear the call get active and be involved. Nothing gets awareness to the powers that be like a crowd of support.
