New public art
You may have noticed some new splashes of colour around the region, with traffic signal boxes painted by local artists to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast. I contributed divisional funding towards this project to have a total of 11 boxes painted in Division 3.
The talented artists have transformed an object that previously may have gone unnoticed or even been tagged with graffiti, into a work of art that will make people stop and appreciate it.
Sculpture coming to Oceanside
Last month saw the commencement of foundation work for a stunning piece of public art, which will be positioned in the Oceanside Village Park, on the corner of Kawana Way and Lake Kawana Boulevard. The unique steel sculpture is expected to be installed by the artist before the end of June.
Birtinya Parking update
The Birtinya Residential Parking Permit six-month trial commenced at the start of June. While there have been some minor teething issues with its introduction, the response from residents has been encouraging. I welcome any additional feedback locals have about this matter.
Meet your councillor
A friendly reminder that my next ‘mobile office’ session is on Friday June 23 from 9am-11am at Currimundi Marketplace. Hope to see you there!
