Snowy Monaro Regional Council approved two community items at the ordinary council meeting on Wednesday April 17 .
The Learn to Ride Centre proposed for the Nijong Oval Sporting Precinct was approved to proceed to the construction phase.
The centre, which simulates traffic features such as roundabouts and pathways, aims to educate young cyclists about traffic safety.
While some residents surrounding Nijong Oval have indicated they do not want the facility at that location, other community consultation has indicated the majority of the community support the project. A Facebook poll asking ‘Do you support the proposed location at Nijong Oval? If no, please comment with your proposed alternative location’ received 386 votes in support, and 38 votes against.
Suggested alternatives were Lions Park at Yallakool Road and Rotary Oval.
Another Facebook poll asking ‘Do you support the proposed construction of a Learn to Ride Centre’ returned 166 votes in favour and 16 votes against.
