THE community came out in force last
Monday night, September 5 with 42 peo-
ple in attendance at the second meeting
to hear ideas for the future of the Koru-
mburra Railway Station.
The redevelopment of the VicTrack land and
building has captured the imagination of a broad
range of people and a great deal of interest is be-
ing taken at a variety of level.
The South Gippsland Shire Council’s com-
munity strengthening officer Barbara Look said
people are engaged by the project and 10 people
put their hands up without any need for anyone to
The 10 have volunteered to examine ideas sub-
mitted as uses suggested for the precinct.
Volunteers include Steve Bone, manager of the
Commonwealth Bank and president of the Koru-

the Korumburra Round Table; Jenni Keerie, the
co-ordinator of Milpara House; Gil Freeman from
Grow Lightly; and David Rasmus well known for
his work with the South Gippsland Tourist Rail-

cated to music and theatre.
With a functional kitchen in place the opportu-

with potential for the main room to be used for
community meetings and events.
Ms Look said VicTrak has been helpful and is
ready to play its role to part fund with one million
dollars and assist with the removal of rails.
The shire is grateful to the Korumburra Se-
nior Citizens Club for hosting and catering for
the meeting which got underway at 5.30pm and
finished at 7.30pm

experience, as the Colorado program was a co-
development project between GM Brazil, GM

type of engineering work Holden will be re-
sponsible for in the future.
