Cr Robinson - Eumundi and Yandina Update
  • Friday 25 July 2014

Link from Gridley Street to new building
After a recent meeting between the Eumundi and District Historical Association, Councillor Rogerson and I, it was agreed council will scope a project to provide vehicle access to the new building behind Discover Eumundi. The project will include vehicle access, road reserve landscaping, and other upgrades to improve the function and amenity of Clem Park.

Meeting with the community
Last month’s ‘meet and greet’ in Eumundi provided a great opportunity to discuss residents’ concerns, including the Eumundi Doonan Verrierdale Group’s proposal for this area to be governed by the Noosa Council. Other topics included progress on the Eumundi Markets terraces area, the Halls Creek and interurban break debate, and a few general enquiries.

Yandina Chamber of Commerce
A number of key matters were discussed at the last Chamber meeting, including funding opportunities for the Yandina Street Fair, improved access for kayaks and canoes along the North Arm and Maroochy rivers, and improvements to pedestrian access and the amenities block in Yandina town centre.

NAIDOC Week, held 6-13 July this year, is an opportunity to officially honor the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples in the Sunshine Coast region. There were a number of NAIDOC Week celebrations around the region, including council’s flag raising ceremony in Nambour. NAIDOC stands for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’ which was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week. This acronym has since become the name of the week itself.

Happy 200
Congratulations to Sacha and the Eumundi Green team on its 200th edition – it’s the voice of the community and provides an important source of local information. Here’s to another 200.
