MARYBOROUGH RSL HUGE EXPANSION PLANS ON TRACK & WITH PUBLIC SUPPORT

February 21st, 2013

THE MAGIC THAT IS MARYBOROUGH RSL & IT’S EXPANSION

THE Maryborough RSL is planning a two-storey expansion worth $6 million, in a move RSL president Bob Evans vows will be “the makings of Maryborough”.

“We are building two storeys in the two Adelaide St shops we own next door,” Mr Evans said.

“Our offices and poker machines will move into the new building.

“We’ll have a sports bar there with a TAB and upstairs will be a function area to seat 300 but which can be divided into three separate areas.”

Construction is scheduled to kick off in June.

“This is big for Maryborough and we’re just waiting on final approval from State RSL but we have already commissioned two builders to come up with the final design,” Mr Evans said.

“Significant local jobs will come out of this and I am absolutely confident the project is now a goer.

The name of the new building is being held tightly by Mr Evans but the hint is a “significant RSL name” will grace the structure.

“There’s more on the way when this goes through,” Mr Evans, who has served as president for six years, said.

“I’d like to see with members’ support more office space being created in the three shops we own in Adelaide Street on the other side of the club.

“I’d like to see Legacy, our library, our sub-branch all accommodated there on ground level so our veterans can easily access services.

“And my vision is that one day this club will have a multi-storey car park.”

The committee is already looking at the opportunity to introduce fine dining in the current club poker machine area and to redesign the kiddies’ room with a soundproof glass front.

“Our smokers’ area will encompass murals contributed by local schools to commemorate the 2015 Gallipoli centenary,” he said.

“2013 will be Maryborough RSL’s big year.”
