FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2017 VOL 11#16 MILDURAWEEKLY.COM.AU FREE EVERY FRIDAY Motorsport green light By Alexandra Treloar email@example.com @MilduraWeekly @MilduraWeekly MILDURA’S multi-million dollar motorsport precinct is another step closer to becoming a reality. Mildura councillors voted last night to officially endorse the project’s business case and investment prospectus, paving the way for the precinct to poten- tially come to fruition. According to Council, the project, if implemented in its entirety, has the potential to produce 800 jobs and inject $698million dollars into the region over 30 years. Industry and community stakeholders, and Coun- cil representatives, were first presented the $220,000 plan – which included the business case and invest- ment prospectus, in November 2016. Five options were presented to the forum ranging in cost from $21million to $80million, with all op- tions found to produce significant economic benefits for the area. The master-plan of the proposed precinct includes a 3km bitumen racetrack, skid pan, pit area with con- trol tower, parking, camping facilities and jet boat wa- ter course. • Continued Page 3 • GOT IT DONE!: Mildura Councillors have officially endorsed a business case and investment prospectus for a multi-million dollar motorsport precinct. No one is more excited about the move than Mildura Mayor Glenn Milne, who has been in favour of the project for the past 10 years.

It is anticipated that should the project go ahead, Mildura can expect to host bigger and better motorsport-themed events. Photo PAUL MENSCH CALL NOW 03 5032 1502 ...
