At Community ASA we believe that disunion is created in communities when governing bodies do not keep pace with our changing world. Their focus on the continuous maintenance and improvement of social systems is often disturbed by areas of seemingly greater importance. When this happens, those who experience the greatest unrest are the most vulnerable in the community. This is a great unjust. We believe that by realigning this focus, by unifying every member of the community to evolve together as one, governing bodies can empower their communities to work towards a sustainable future together. Our community facilities are just one very large step towards a stronger, more unified Northern Queensland. By providing a sanctuary that welcomes all members of the Aitkenvale and surrounding communities, both young and old. We are encouraging people of all different walks of life to come together as one to play, learn, relax, celebrate, laugh, and experience all in one central location. Discrimination, hate speech, exclusion – all are meaningless when you enter our recreational oasis. And with continuous effort, we believe these values will inspire all areas of the community to do better, and live better together. Now, more than ever, communities need to stand together as one.
