Cr Baberowski - Smoke nuisance
  • Monday 30 March 2015

Smoke and particles from open-air fires can cause a nuisance to neighbours and interfere with their normal daily activities.

I would like to remind residents that a permit from Queensland Fire and Rescue Service is required for burning accumulated material larger than two metres by two metres.

It is also a good idea to consider the direction in which the smoke will blow and chat with your neighbours to be sure to minimise any nuisance.

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 and for more information on the artist visit

Out and about

I’ll be outside Target at the Marketplace in Beerwah on Friday, April 10 from 9am to 11am. I'm looking forward to catching up with locals and discussing what’s happening in the community.
