Support a Suncorp Stadium Community Trust
To: Graham Quirk, Lord Mayor of Brisbane
We the undersigned residents of Brisbane call upon Brisbane City Council to contribute $100,000 per annum to a Suncorp Stadium community trust.
The State Government has already agreed to a matched contribution of $100,000.
Brisbane City Council collects more than $600,000 from Suncorp Stadium in rates and charges, and more than $20,000 in parking fines for each stadium event.
Residents of Paddington, Milton, Petrie Terrace and Red Hill are often inconvenienced by the running of Suncorp Stadium – which is of benefit to all Queenslanders. A community trust will improve community services in the local area providing a tangible benefit for local residents.
