I am happy to announce that the drainage works in the Elizabeth Daniels dog park have been completed. The works included providing a rubble pit to reduce the amount of water swamping the park. In addition to the rubble pit, a new slab was placed under the dog bowl to drain any excess water. The new drainage works will greatly reduce the amount of unwanted water pooling the park, due to the drinking bowl overflowing. This is a great outcome for our local community, providing a much more functional community facility.
50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast
The 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast will be officially commemorated on 1 August 2017. Council is planning a number of celebrations throughout 2017 to mark this historic occasion. Photography enthusiasts are invited to dig out their photo albums and cardboard boxes in search of their favourite 1960s and 1970s photo of the Sunshine Coast for the chance to be featured in the Still Shining – Celebrating 50 Years 2017 heritage calendar. Applications are now open and I encourage all residents to send in their treasured photos of our beautiful region.
With less than five months until Christmas, now is the time for business groups to apply for council grants to help with decorating business centres during the festive season. There is $5000 in funding available for Division 6. Find details about the application process and guidelines on council’s website.
