Shoalhaven City Council has made the BMX facility at Curleys Bay Reserve, Culburra permanent following the completion of a 12 month trial period.
The track, which has proven extremely popular with local residents, consists of a dirt circuit inclusive of a series of jumps, berms and raised corners suitable for BMX riding.
Mayor, Joanna Gash said that following ongoing discussions surrounding the location of the track and the conclusion of the 12 month trial period she was extremely pleased to see the facility become permanent.
The Mayor said the BMX track provided the local community a high quality recreational facility and meeting hub.
“The Culburra Beach Community Consultative Body has long expressed an interest in developing a permanent BMX track in the local area,” said Clr Gash.
“Council worked extremely closely with the local CCB to develop the BMX track in the Curley Bay Reserve before the implementation of a 12 month trial period.
“Staff have monitored the site closely over the past year and reporting an increased use from participants utilising the facility.”
“Given the use and community support for the BMX track I am extremely pleased to see the facility made permanent.”
Council’s Policy and Resources Committee moved to make the track permanent under the delegation of Council during this afternoon’s Committee meeting.
As part of the recommendation Council staff will investigate the Curley Bay Reserve site for the ability to also house a skate park.
A further report outlining options will go before Council following the investigation.
