Community tours of Civic Centre

Community tours of the new Civic Centre were held at the start of this month, with participants getting an exciting opportunity to get a sneak peek of this contemporary, purpose-built community facility.

Tours focused on the innovative construction methods, sustainability and Green Star rating and community and civic spaces including the civic plaza, library, auditorium, council chambers and customer service area.

The Civic Centre creates a real heart for Shellharbour City, a community “lounge room” where people can meet, learn and enjoy the public spaces.

The Civic Centre will be officially opened at the start of December.
