Moranbah Youth and Community Centre Opens
The Moranbah Youth and Community Centre was opened by Queensland Minister for Communities the Hon. Coralee O’Rourke MP, Isaac Regional Council Mayor Cr Anne Baker, and BMA Caval Ridge Mine General Manager Dan Iliffe.
Guests were honoured to be joined by representatives of the Barada Barna People – the Traditional Owners of Moranbah, and it was a wonderful opportunity to see the work being undertaken by the Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors, Moranbah and District Support Service, and Emergency & Long-Term Accommodation in Moranbah.
The multi-purpose centre incorporates space for youth and community activities, counselling rooms, open-plan office space, and meeting rooms.
MYCC was developed under a partnership project with the Queensland Government, with BMA contributing $5.2 million through its commitment to community enrichment as part of the Caval Ridge Mine Social Impact Management Plan.
This initiative between BMA and the Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors, with ongoing support from Isaac Regional Council, is another example of how the private sector and Government can work together to ensure the liveability and prosperity of sustainable rural communities.
The MYCC can be found on the corner of Mills Avenue and Appleton Street in Moranbah.
