For 31 years Mahogany Neighbourhood Centre (formerly Pines Neighbourhood House) provided the local community with quality, affordable and accessible programs and has activities and informed, supported and empowered thousands of people, creating change and growth for the Frankston North community.
In August 2014, with no consultation with the Centre Management or Committee, Frankston City Council formally gave notice of its intention to resume control of the Mahogany Neighbourhood Centre in 2015. Council claim that it proposes to use the Centre to deliver educational and health programs to meet community needs and improve community health and wellbeing under a different delivery model.
With great sadness, the Committee of Management advises that Mahogany Neighbourhood Centre Inc. will cease operation on Friday 19 December 2014 and be wound up as a Members Voluntary Liquidation.
Frankston City Council will resume control of the building on 30 January 2015. To make arrangements with Council phone Christine Tudor on 9784 1721.
We take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your support of Mahogany Neighbourhood Centre.
