A link to the bridge

After an onsite meeting at the Eumundi Range Road bridge it was evident to me that the failing bitumen footpath leading up to the bridge needed a complete makeover. I have allocated an additional sum of money from council’s Division 9 divisional fund to replace it with a wider concrete footpath that provides easy user friendly access to the new bridge. The bridge is on track to be complete in December.

Brilliant body art

I would like to join Councillor Greg in congratulating the Australian Body Art Festival organisers on a brilliant three days of cultural and arts experiences. This event was a great showcase of talented artists in a picturesque setting. Eumundi was truly at its best that weekend.

Are our trees and native vegetation important to you? Curious to know how council looks after these important natural assets?  We’ve released a draft Tree and Native Vegetation Policy, which guides how we manage trees on council-owned land in a sustainable way. Visit our website to have your say on the proposed policy from November 15 to December 15 and go in the draw to win two nights stay at Treehouses Montville.

Meet and greet

Last month’s meet and greet session proved to be a popular one, with locals showing a keen interest in Sunshine Coast Council’s current projects. Recent Environment Levy outcomes were of particular interest, including the 480ha of land we’ve secured for environmental purposes from the Palmview Infrastructure Agreement and our Land for Wildlife (LFW) program. There are 866 LFW properties in the Sunshine Coast Council area, which makes it the largest LFW program in Australia.
