The Lusk Vision 2030 project will deliver its final report in July or August and we will see what recommendations the consultants will present to make the town a better place over the next decade. It has already delivered an important submission for the Fingal County Development Plan 2023-2029 and we hope that Fingal County Council will take on board the many issues raised. However Lusk Community Council has already brought the Lusk Community Cultural Centre project to construction phase and huge progress has been made during May and June.This project is important for a number of reasons. It is redeveloping what was a derelict site on Church Road. In doing so, the Community Council is conserving the façade and gable walls of an important vernacular cottage in the heart of medieval Lusk. It is creating a new cultural centre for the town and this project will significantly add to the ranking of Lusk in the “Tidy Towns Awards”. The Cultural Centre will in turn become a springboard for new ideas and engagements for the community of Lusk as well as for visitors to our town. When Fingal County Council redevelops the adjoining property as five residential units for independent living by 2022, Church Road will have two exceptional improvement projects in the heart of medieval Lusk. Pride in our town is very important for everyone. Willie McGee, a director of Lusk Community Council, has been working tirelessly to clean up the town with your help. He has organised a number of “spring clean” days with great community engagement. This is a simple idea, everyone can play their part, it just involves giving your time to help out. Willie (Tel. 087 6379199) and Fingal County Council (www.fingal.ie) are now promoting the “Adopt A Patch” idea. If everyone plays a small part, then the sum of the parts becomes a game-changer. You too can help build a better Lusk.
