Rehab on Beerburrum St

Council has started work to improve the road surface along Beerburrum Street in Dicky Beach, as part of its annual Road Reseal and Rehabilitation Program. This will make the road safer and help prevent ongoing maintenance issues. The work requires extensive strengthening of the sub-surface, as well as kerb and channel repairs, and drainage installation. Traffic controls, including detours, will be in place to ensure the safety of motorists and pedestrians. It’s due to be completed in mid-March, weather permitting. Thanks for your patience while work is underway.

Park improvements

Council will soon improve areas of Ridgehaven Park in Aroona. We’ll construct a shelter over the table in the existing dog exercise enclosure, and create a new small dog enclosure. There has been a delay to the original delivery date due to additional refinement of the project. Work is likely to start at the end of February or in early March. I’m sure our local dogs, and their owners, will be happy to have more space to run around off leash.

Well-deserved accolade

One of our own Division 3 residents, Anne Wensley, has taken the prestigious title of Senior Citizen of the Year. Anne received the award at council’s Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards ceremony held at Lake Kawana Community Centre. Anne has dedicated the past 50 years to our community, through more than 25 community projects and groups.  Her contributions include writing local history books about Caloundra, establishing community gardens and helping to establish Caloundra’s Resource Recovery Centre. Congratulations, Anne, and thank you for all your hard work!
