Sunshine Coast Council has allocated more than $189 million this financial year for capital works projects across the region – and now you’ll be able to see where parks, transportation, community facilities, stormwater and environmental projects are being delivered during the 2011/12 financial year.
Council’s Asset Management & Service Programming Manager, Chris Campbell, said a new electronic layer detailing infrastructure projects being delivered by council is now available on its MyMaps site for the first time.
"This will allow everyone to keep a track of council works being delivered in their street, in their neighbourhood or across the region," Mr Campbell said.
"It’s all about making it easier for people to know what council is doing.
"Council is delivering for the whole region, including a capital works program which is expected to generate more than 1200 jobs."
MyMaps was launched earlier this year to provide more information and feedback about our region – in a simple-to-understand map format. It includes electronic layer maps about planning, topography, weather impacts, transport routes, schools, libraries, public buildings and parks.
The introduction of the capital works component is part of the ongoing information evolution on the site, Mr Campbell said.
"In time, all council civil projects and road repair works will be available on MyMaps, displaying just how much on-the-ground activity is taking place at any one time," he said.
The site has a ‘help’ button to assist users in navigating the site, also a ‘contact us’ button should you want to let us know your thoughts and ideas about the site.
