Shaping a future for Division 10

Sunshine Coast Council’s 2015-16 budget includes a mix of projects to shape a positive future by growing the economy and protecting and enhancing the environment. Council is investing in a wide range of projects which will be of great benefit to Division 10 residents.  Exciting projects for Eumundi include $715,000 for improvements to the terraces at the Eumundi Markets site and $220,000 for some fantastic upgrades to Dick Caplick Park.

Queensland Garden Expo

It’s that time of year again! The Queensland Garden Expo is on this weekend (10-12 July) and people will travel from far and wide to enjoy this great event in all its green glory. We’re very lucky to have it right here on our door step at Nambour Showgrounds, so make sure you head along for a look.

While you’re there be sure to visit Council’s Living Backyard display to learn how to attract wildlife to your backyard. You’ll find interactive displays, workshops and exhibitors with a wealth of knowledge about backyard nature conservation.

Pool hoist back in action

I’m pleased to let you know the hoist at Eumundi Aquatic Centre is back in action. Some residents had raised concerns about the hoist not working, but I can confirm it has been repaired and deemed operational for a few months now.

Do your bit

We all have a role to play in helping the Sunshine Coast become Australia’s most sustainable region, so I’d like to share some recycling tips with you. This week’s tip: be careful what you put in the recycling bin. Plastic bags, drinking straws, broken crockery and polystyrene containers are the most common items mistakenly placed in the recycling bin. Plastic bags can be recycled through bins at participating supermarkets. The other items should be placed in the rubbish bin.
