‘Meet and greet’ with councillors and community representatives
At an informal council meeting held at the Coolum Civic Centre last week, I took the opportunity to show my fellow councillors the planning work that is being carried out for the Civic Centre’s upgrade and the revitalisation of Jack Morgan Park. I also invited a number of community representatives to personally meet with the councillors to discuss some of the key local issues.
Holiday Park receives a $520,000 upgrade
Some more good news with Council’s Coolum Beach Holiday Park about to undergo a $520,000 upgrade to cater for the ever-growing number of guests who have discovered this affordable beach-side getaway. This upgrade will meet the demand for larger, well-drained sites to cater for today’s larger campervans and motorhomes. Internal roads will be sealed and, together with other drainage works, this will be an all-weather camping and caravan park.
Men’s Shed barbecue
Congratulations to Coolum Men’s Shed president Trevor and his team for generously donating $500 to the Farmer’s Drought Relief Appeal. I recently attended a barbecue lunch at the Shed where they presented the cheque to this worthy cause.
I recently attended a Development Watch general meeting to speak about several topical issues, including Sundale, Bunnings, the new airport runway, Palmer Coolum Resort, and the Sekisui Development. It was a great chance to provide additional information on these important community issues, and I would like to thank Development Watch for the opportunity.
It was great to see the close working relationship between Coolum police and members of Coolum Neighbourhood Watch when I attended a recent Coolum Neighbourhood Watch meeting. It’s clear that by working closely with the police, the group is producing some great outcomes for the local community.
