In spite of Covid restrictions in 2021, Lusk Community Council embarked on its biggest ever pro-ject on the 4th May with the reopening of construction, the construction of a new Cultural Centre in Lusk. This project is ongoing and we look forward to its completion in May 2022. The comple-tion of Lusk Vision 2030 Plan for Lusk was another pandemic milestone and January 2022 will see the first meeting of the Lusk Vision 2030 Implementation Team, a new cross community group to work on implementing a miriad of projects to improve our town. Let’s also recognise and cele-brate key improvements achieved in 2021. The Fingal County Council programmes delivered a new lighting system in the old graveyard; the restoration of the bandstand on the Green; upgrading the tennis courts in Orlynn Park; footpath upgrades on Church Road / Ministers Road, path and road improvements on Church Road, while Lidl delivered a new retail outlet for the town. These are all very visible improvements, however much work is undertaken that is less visible, the work of the Lusk 2020 Sports Committee being a case in point. The 2020 Sports Committee has contin-ued to work with Fingal County Council throughout 2021 to make further improvements to the phase one Recreational Hub in Lusk, while working to bring the phase two open space in charge from the developer to Fingal County Council. Once in charge the 2020 Sports Committee will be working with Fingal to develop the final Masterplan for the Recreational Hub, taking into account the needs of our schools, our sporting organisations and the public at large. This is the number one priority of the 2020 Sports Committee in 2022 and it will be another exciting project for Lusk.
2022 will be an important year for the next stages in the preparation of the Fingal Development Plan 2023-2029. Please engage in this process. Your input is important.
Lusk Community Council wants to recognise all the voluntary work undertaken by countless vol-unteers across the community, it is very important, as is the work of our Councillors, who seek to make improvements in our town and community. Thank you.
