Keilor Community Hub to open its doors

Summary

The highly anticipated Keilor Community Hub will open its doors on Monday 3 April 2017.

Mayor of Brimbank, Cr John Hedditch encouraged community members to visit the Hub to access Council’s new Customer Service Centre, the new Keilor Library, neighbourhood house programs, arts spaces and community meeting rooms.

“For some time now the Keilor community has been watching the transformation of the former Keilor municipal office building.

“We’re happy to say work is now complete and doors will open to the Keilor Community Hub on Monday 3 April.

“We are confident the community will be pleased with what’s been done with the space.

“The new Keilor Library is more than double the size compared to Kennedy Street, and will offer customers access to a more contemporary library with improved facilities.

Keilor Customer Service Centre

“We are also pleased to re-open Council’s Keilor Customer Service Centre where customer support staff will once again be available to respond to general enquiries and receive payments.

“For the first time, residents will also have access to neighbourhood house programs in Keilor,” Cr Hedditch said.

Neighbourhood house programs will be managed through Sydenham Neighbourhood House, with pop-up programs to be initially offered to provide a sample of popular programs held at other centres.

Community feedback on the neighbourhood house pop-up programs will be used to inform programming for Terms 3 and 4.

  • self-service kiosks;
  • two children’s touchscreen PCs;
