Price welcomes the signing of contracts for $3 million Cathedral Precinct development

Member for Durack, Melissa Price has welcomed the signing of contracts for the Geraldton Cathedral Precinct project; a $3 million election commitment. 

Ms Price said the milestone marked an important day for Geraldton, as the town would benefit from the tourism dollars generated by the project. 

“I’m very happy to see this project receive support as it will contribute to tourism growth in the city and support local jobs and industry” Ms Price said. 

“Tourism is a real growth industry not just for the Mid West, but for all the five regions of Durack, and anything that encourages the tourism sector is something I fully support.  

“The Cathedral is an architectural achievement and has national heritage significance, and enjoys about 20,000 tourist visits a year. 

“I fully endorse the funding being committed by the Federal Government, and I welcome the opportunity to encourage more visitors to the region.  

“I’m proud to have won funding for this important project for my local community and am proud to be seeing it through to fruition” Ms Price said.  

While the Coalition is investing in the project, the Diocese is managing the delivery of this project.
