Cobargo Community Building / Community Fire Refuge
The Cobargo Community Bushfire Recovery Fund committee met on 20 August and approved a seed funding grant of $5,280 for the design concept for a Cobargo Community Building/Community Fire Refuge. In their application, the Yuin Folk Club, the Cobargo Showground Land Manager supported by the Cobargo A.P&H Society, said the proposed $2m building would be built at the Showground,
The proposed building would give Cobargo and the region a bushfire refuge and evacuation centre as well as a modern community facility for use by community organisations and others.
This is a major Cobargo community recovery project that has broad support from the local and regional community and is gaining support from sponsors and corporate donors. The project team is working to get significant funding support from governments at all levels and advises that there will be more information about this project in coming weeks.
