Following the recent heavy rainfall I’ve heard several accounts of increased mosquitoes around local properties. In addition to Council’s regional mosquito control program, there are a number of simple things you can do to help stop mozzies breeding in your backyard, such as emptying pooled water out of any pots or containers. Visit Council’s website for more helpful tips.
Thank you to everyone who attended the recent Mooloolaba-Minyama bikeway info sessions. The new bikeway will allow more people to travel safely by bike through this area. It will also fill a missing link in 96km of Coastal Pathway between Tewantin in the north to Pelican Waters in the south. This flagship project will suit cyclists of all abilities. It will improve access and safety, reduce traffic congestion and will be an attractive addition to the streetscape. View the designs and provide feedback on Council’s website before 16 March.
NY artist creates Coast’s own wings
In a first for Queensland, high profile New York City artist Kelsey Montague created #whatliftsyou, a public art piece that delights the senses and connects participants to the Sunshine Coast through social media platforms. The intricate wings feature unique Sunshine Coast elements and icons, and it is fantastic to see how these seemingly disparate elements are brought together so beautifully in a singular art piece.
#whatliftsyou will be exhibited at Nambour Civic Centre from March 6 to April 15 and will pop up at other locations across the Coast. If you have an opportunity I encourage you to drop by and have your photograph taken with the wings and share with you online friends. Visit Council’s gallery website for event details.
