Landsborough Place Making Master Plan
Kicking off the consultation with ‘Beers and Ideas’ at the Landsborough Pub went well with a good bunch of people dropping in to view the information panels and talk to the place making team and myself. This really is your chance to help shape the town's future and we want to hear from you! The first and current phase of community engagement is the ‘Values and Visioning’ phase. Council would love to hear your thoughts on how Landsborough could be upgraded. The project team will collate and review all feedback from the first phase or engagement and develop a draft master plan. The draft master plan will be presented to the community in early May 2018 for further feedback as part of the second phase of community engagement. Now is the time to get involved! Head to https://haveyoursay.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/ for more information.

Glasshouse District Park update
It is looking like March will see the official opening and media event for the Glass House Mountains District Park. The project is jointly between council and the Queensland State Government via the Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program. As you probably already know, our new and pretty amazing park consists of a customised playground, shade sail and stone pitched seating walls; a new public amenities building; shelter with tables, seating, barbecue facilities and drinking fountains; fenced dog off-leash area; bench seats overlooking the lake; pathways, landscaping and drainage works and a 15 bay car park. Keep an eye out for the confirmed opening details for March and join the festivities!
Get ready to go explore!
Council has been working with TransLink for some time to bring the benefits of the go explore card to our region, and it’s finally here! A go explore card allows unlimited daily travel on Sunshine Coast buses for just $10 per day for adults and $5 per day for children. Cards are available from selected retailers including 7-Eleven and Night Owl stores. To find a retailer, or for more information on public transport, visit translink.com.au/goexplore, download the MyTransLink app, or phone 13 12 30, anytime.
