Katoomba Neighbourhood Centre started in 1979 when a public meeting was called by Thelma Murphy (still active in the community and then Alderwoman on Council) to discuss the establishment of a Neighbourhood Centre as a “meeting place where neighbour meets neighbour.” At the time Number 10 Station Street was about to be vacated by the Health Commission. The building was passed over to the newly formed Committee who applied for Western Sydney Area Assistance Scheme (WSAAS) funding. The centre was run entirely by volunteers until 14 June 1981 when WSAAS funded Coordinators commenced duty.
Belong Blue Mountains is managed by a Board of annually-elected local residents, with representatives from the Lower Mountains, Mid Mountains and Katoomba Neighbourhood Centres included on the Board..
