As you may have heard, Sunshine Coast Council announced the annual budget late last month, with $816 million set to be invested in a diverse and valuable mix of projects with the important aim to create a safer, secure future across the region.
Budget highlights for Division 1 include a new $5.5 million extension to the landfill site at Bells Creek, start of detailed design for a significant two-lane upgrade to Johnston Road, Glass House Mountains and signage and trail upgrades along the Glass House Mountains Regional Trail.
In addition, Council will spend more than $1.3 million continuing to upgrade roads across Division 1 and we’re also building on the great progress we’ve made developing a truly remarkable network of family-friendly parks. This financial year we’ll see upgrades to playground equipment and facilities at Beerwah’s Newell Park, renewal of the equipment at Gowen Drive Park at Landsborough and other park upgrades across the Division.
I’m also very pleased to announce that important planning work will begin for a major civic centre at Bells Creek to incorporate a community facility, town plaza and open space.
