Three of our Community project ideas, “Reliable Mobile Phone Service, a safety imperative in Sandy Point”, “Sandy Point Music Club Sound System”, and “Viewing Platform, Main Beach Track, Sandy Point” have been approved to progress to the voting stage of the State Government’ s $30 million Pick My Project initiative. Unfortunately the “Toilet Block for Ned Neale’s Lookout” didn’t make it through.
This means that people in our local community can now vote for their favourite project ideas and hopefully we will get funding for one or more of them. Anyone who is over 16 years old and has a connection with the Sandy Point Community is eligible to vote for our projects.
Voting is now open and will close on Monday 17 September – so please register to vote at and then cast your vote for the three most worthy projects in our local community.

Projects must be nominated by 24 June and during July will be assessed against the guidelines and each project’s budget will also be reviewed. In July/August those projects that are thought to qualify will be announced and voting will then take place.
Winners will be announced in September 2018.
It is important for the success of projects that they receive broad support from our wider community. This is where your help is required; please register for voting now.
To vote, you’ll need to:
• Be a Victorian resident
• Be aged 16 and over
• Live in the community you vote in.
• Register for Pick My Project. This will require mobile phone verification so they can make sure they’re dealing with real people. If you don’t have a mobile, call the contact centre for assistance on 1800 797 818
Please also keep a watch on our website at sandypoint.vic.au and our Facebook page for more information about our success with this initiative.
