Youth services on the Northern Beaches have received a major boost with today‚Äôs opening of the new PCYC in Dee Why ‚Äď the first on the Northern Beaches. To help celebrate, and as a gesture of goodwill, Council is providing free parking until 11 August.
Northern Beaches Council Administrator Dick Persson AM (pictured) said the brand new, $26 million facility on the Kingsway opposite Council‚Äôs Civic Centre would meet the needs of local young people as well as providing much-needed additional car parking.
‚ÄúThe community has made it clear that it needs and wants safe, welcoming spaces, facilities and programs for our young people and I am extremely proud of what we have delivered.
¬†‚ÄúCouncil has built this PCYC to deliver more social, sporting, cultural and recreational activities for all Northern Beaches young people, as well as to provide a larger integrated carpark that benefits the whole community with its proximity to busy transport routes.
‚ÄúThis cutting edge facility, coupled with the strong support network of police and youth professionals, will benefit the Northern Beaches now and for future generations to come,‚ÄĚ Mr Persson said.
