Coraki Youth Hall will get new toilets.
Rileys Hill is set for a new barbecue and picnic shelter and the Evans Head Senior Citizens Hall will be fitted with solar panels.
Eight new community projects in the Richmond Valley have been funded in the NSW Government Community Building Partnership program
State MP Chris Gulaptis said $100,000 was allocated for six community group initiatives and two projects put forward by Richmond Valley Council.
Richmond Valley Mayor Robert Mustow said he was pleased the council’s two bids were for $25,000 to overhaul the Coraki Youth Hall including new toilets and asbestos removal.
The other project is at Rileys Hill with a $14,000 grant to build a new outdoor park shelter with a barbecue and picnic setting.
The other grants will be used to repaint the New Italy Museum, buy solar panels for the Evans Head Senior Citizens Hall and St Vinnies in Casino as well as fund upgrades for three local sports clubs.
“Coraki Golf Club gets 200 new trees and loses its potholes, Casino Pony Club gets a much needed new zero-turn mower and a trailer and Casino Croquet Club gets shaded seating for members and visitors,” Mr Gulaptis said.
