The Northern ARC must be built.
The City of Greater Geelong allocated $20.6 million towards
the priority project in 2017.
But we are still waiting for other levels of government
to help meet the total cost of $61.6m.
You can provide the spark that helps deliver the Northern ARC.
Show your support for the health and recreation facility that will change lives
and deliver a fair outcome for the north.
There is no more time to waste. The Northern ARC must become a reality.
The facility is desperately required to address the entrenched inequality in Geelong.
Co-located with Barwon Health North, the Northern ARC will provide residents with a world-class complex that is unlike anything else in Australia.
Its impact will be enormous. Once opened, it will be one of the region’s busiest public facilities, attracting more than 600,000 people annually.
The integrated complex will deliver an estimated $111 million in preventative health benefits alone within the first 10 years.
It will also create scores of jobs and provide vital social and recreational opportunities currently denied to local residents.
There is no more time to waste. The people of the north need to see decisive action.
The undersigned formally petition politicians of all persuasions to commit funding to the Northern ARC.
