It’s been a busy time with capital projects in Bli Bli. I was very pleased to see the new shade sails at the Muller Park playground installed before the holiday season. It was a much anticipated addition and is no doubt very welcome in the recent hot weather. The Aboriginal colours of black, yellow and red used for the shade sails were selected with the project’s Kabi Kabi representative to tie in with the indigenous-inspired playground.
There is new playground equipment too, at Casey Street Park and at Sam Bowda Park, as well as a new basketball half court in Whistler Street. There’s also some improvements at Dunethin Rock, with a new shelter and revetment rock wall to make the bank more stable for fishing.
Apply for grants
Private rural landholders can apply for assistance to undertake on-the-ground projects to protect and enhance the region’s environmental values through our Landholder Environment Grants. Submit an Expression of Interest by February 26 on council’s website.
Australia Day activities
If you’re looking forward to celebrating Australia Day as much as I am, you’ll be happy to hear there are some great events planned for the day and in the lead up. On January 20, choose between Coolum Flicks in the Sticks at Coolum’s Tickle Park, Cinema in the Sand at Mooloolaba or Fire in the Sky at Cotton Tree. On January 26, head to Tickle Park for Australia Day celebrations from 7am.
Youth Action Plan
Be sure to take a look at council’s draft Sunshine Coast Youth Action Plan by February 12 – it’s on our Have Your Say website at haveyoursay.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au. I’m a firm believer in a youth action plan and I hope you can provide your comments.
