Marino Community Hall - I wish this was...

A picture of Marino Hall from across the road

For many generations the Marino Community Hall has served the community of Marino and surrounding suburbs by providing a place to meet, try art, do yoga and occasionally have a dance. However it’s time for us to start thinking about the future for both the Hall and the piece of adjacent land the City of Marion has recently acquired. But before we do anything we want to hear your thoughts on a few key elements to ensure that the site is enhanced for the benefit of the whole community. Over the next six weeks we will be seeking your ideas for what the site could be used for in the future. We will simply be asking ‘What would you like to see Marino Community Hall and vacant land used for?’ and getting you to answer by completing the statement ‘I wish this was…’

We want you to get involved so we can start to build a picture of how the site could be used, from modifying the current structure to potentially starting fresh and building something the community wants and will use. We will be seeking your thoughts in a number of ways including:

You can respond in any way you wish. We are looking for written comments, photos, short videos, and if you’re feeling artistic drawings or collages of what the site might look like. This means whether you're 5 or 85 anyone can get involved.

While we cannot promise that these ideas will be developed, we want to hear what people in the Marino area have on their wish list so we can make the most informed choices for you, the site and the community in the future.

Consultation starts 1 November. Share your ideas by 13 December.

If you need more information please contact the Community Engagement Coordinator - communityengagement@marion.sa.gov.au
