Multicultural community hub on former Pallara State School site

Eligibility - Queensland citizens

Principal Petitioner:

Councillor Angela Owens
PO Box 5236

Total Signatures - 68

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 22/04/2020

Tabled Date: 22/04/2020

Responded By: Hon Grace Grace MP on 22/05/2020

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the lack of a multicultural community hub in the south west corridor of Brisbane.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to transfer the former Pallara State School site and all existing infrastructure at 282 Ritchie Road Pallara in trust to the Brisbane City Council at no cost so it can be activated as a community facility for the purpose of a multicultural community hub. This facility will support local multicultural groups to continue traditions of language, art, music, dance, food and culture, along with training, awareness and wellbeing programs for the multicultural and wider community.
