Residents are invited to share their vision for the future use of the historic Mill Manager’s House and the 1949 Jarrahdale Timber Mill at a special community workshop on November 14. Built in 1885, the Mill Manager’s House and 1949 Timber Mill are key features of the Jarrahdale Heritage Park, which pays homage to the area’s history as WA’s first timber town.

Both structures were recently granted Royalties for Regions funding to assist with preservation works.

With works beginning in 2018, the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale, together with the National Trust of WA, are seeking expressions of interest from local groups and businesses eager to activate the area and use the Mill Manger’s House.

Shire President Cr Michelle Rich encouraged residents to attend Tuesday’s community workshop and have their say on the site’s future.

“The Shire has a long and very proud history which lives on through historic buildings like the Mill Manager’s House and 1949 Timber Mill,” Cr Rich said.

“The activation of this site for community use is important to our residents and something the Shire fully supports. We would like to encourage all interested groups to attend the upcoming workshop where they will have the opportunity to share ideas and opinions that will inform our longer term vision for the site.”

More information on the expressions of interest process will be available at http://bit.ly/2izQCWY following the workshop.
