Upgrades in Bli Bli

Council has just commenced the public information sessions for the sealing of Sports Road. At long last, visitors to the Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary and McMartins Strawberry Farm will soon be able to access these great local attractions without the dust, dirt and corrugations. Road construction will commence around March next year, weather permitting.

Additionally, the Interpretive Centre at the Wetlands Sanctuary has been scheduled for refurbishment mid-next year. The structure of the building will be upgraded and the interpretive displays and other educational materials will get a makeover too.

Edgewater Spring Fair

It was a great privilege to open the Edgewater Spring Fair last month. This is always a very popular event for Bli Bli and nearby residents, with plenty of stalls and fun things to do for all the family. The profits from this event are used for Edgewater Village projects, as well as providing support to much-needed charities and community programs. My thanks go to managers Heather and Ray for a terrific day out.

Community meeting

The last Bli Bli community meeting was an outstanding success. These meetings provide a great opportunity for the public to hear about upcoming projects and ask questions about the issues that matter to them. Residents were treated to a several presentations about the many exciting major projects underway in Bli Bli –  Parklakes II, the golf course and the Supa IGA expansion plans.

My presentation included an update on council projects such as those at Sports Road and the Wetlands Sanctuary, the Muller Park children’s playground, the new footpath network and the new Bli Bli signage. There is no doubt that a lot is happening in Bli Bli at the moment and these changes will ensure it remains a vibrant community and great place to live.

Meet and greet

Come along to the River Markets on December 2 at 9-11am for my next ‘meet and greet’ session. It’s the last one for 2014.
