Cr Thompson - Chirunga Park Shelter
  • Thursday 26 November 2015

We have received a lot of positive feedback from passers-by during construction of new shelter at Churinga Park on the bluff at Alex. The old shelter and slab have been removed, the old bitumen drainage has been replaced with turf and the new shelter is now taking shape. One of our main objectives with this project was to retain the character and look of the previous shelter while using more robust materials that cater to this extreme coastal environment and I’m pleased that this approach is supported by our community.

$1 million grant for cycleway

Recreational riders, commuters and experienced cyclists can soon enjoy a new continuous 2.2km cycle corridor through Maroochydore thanks to a grant from the State Government’s Priority Cycle Route Improvement Program. An easier route is sure to encourage more people to ride bicycles to get to work as well as access business and retail facilities, restaurants and entertainment venues, beaches and a range of community facilities along the vibrant activity centres of Alexandra Parade, Cotton Tree and Maroochydore.

Make a difference with the gift of literacy

If you’re looking for a good cause to support this Christmas, I strongly encourage you to consider donating the annual ‘Books 4 Kids’ book drive so you can brighten a child’s life with the gift of reading. You can drop new children’s books into any library on the Coast, including the Maroochydore Library on Sixth Avenue, until December 11 and you don’t even need to wrap the book. Council’s Libraries have partnered with Salvation Army on this fantastic initiative for the past 15 years.
