Cr Dickson - A happy median on Karawatha Drive
  • Friday 16 January 2015

There’s an attractive new look to Karawatha Drive in Buderim. 
At the request of local residents council undertook landscaping beautification works in the centre median at the entry of the Hibiscus Retirement Resort.
I was only too happy to help fast track this work by contributing divisional funding and am pleased to have achieved a great outcome that not only looks great but also ensures that visibility and safety on this section of Karawatha Drive isn’t compromised.

Disaster hub – everything at your fingertips
This time of year it is more important than ever to be ready for disasters.
And it’s now easier for Sunshine Coast residents and visitors to prepare for severe weather events and other disasters, and stay up-to-date with important information when events occur.
Council has just launched a new Disaster Hub which has weather warnings, road closures and evacuation centres on one easy-to-use site.
It also links to airport updates, traffic cameras, flood mapping, and council’s news updates and social media.
The new hub coordinates all local information in the one area so the public can access it quickly whether it be from your home or office computer or mobile device.
Visit the hub at today for all the information you need and to prepare in case a disaster strikes.
Grants up for grabs
Council offers a great range of grants programs to assist many different individuals and groups with various projects that will benefit the Sunshine Coast community, environment and the arts.
Find out more about council’s Community Grants, Regional Arts Development Fund, Landholder Environment Grants and Environment Levy Grants programs – all open now or very soon – by visiting council’s website.
