Community engagement for “Lusk Vision 2030, Lusk for Life”, with consultants AP&E, commenced in February and is ongoing. Many thanks to Lusk Community Council who have progressed this project and made this opportunity available. We have been asked to complete a survey regarding the needs of Lusk, and over the coming weeks, a 2030 plan will be developed based on the survey results and the engagement with all community groups. This is a unique and really positive opportunity for Lusk, and we are very hopeful that, as a cohesive community, we can deliver a well-considered plan for Lusk over the next 10 years.
Late January saw the passing of 13 residents in one week in Lusk Community Unit, from COVID 19. We would like to again express our deepest and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of those who died and, indeed, all those who have lost loved ones in this last extremely difficult year in our community. May they Rest in Peace.
Fingal County Council’s programme of works for Lusk was published last month. We are receiving improvement works to the amount of €362,000, the largest amount Lusk has ever received, for road works on Thorigne Fouliard Lane, Traen Hill, Minister’s Road and St. McCullin’s Close; path works on the Skerries Road to Country Gardens and Minister’s Road; controlled pedestrian crossing at Skerries Road roundabout/Clonrath Estate; pedestrian warning sign on Minister’s Road, repair on pathway and bandstand on the Green and fencing replacement on the tennis court in Orlynn Park. Many thanks to Councillor Robert O’Donoghue for all his representations on our behalf. We continue to plan and develop our Multi-Use Youth Services Facility proposal for Lusk, regarding which we will be in discussions with consultants AP&E as part of the “Lusk Vision 2030”.
