Drop in to say hello
Happy New Year! I hope you had a relaxing break over the Christmas and New Year period. I’ll be holding my first ‘councillor catch-up’ sessions for the year on January 29 at Currimundi Market Place between 9-11am and at Parklands Market Place (outside Aldi) between 12-2pm. Please drop by if you would like to chat about what’s on the agenda for Division 3 this year, let me know what’s important to you, or just to say hello. I hope to see you there.
Improved safety for students
Council is currently constructing a new pathway along Coonowrin Street in Dicky Beach. It will stretch from the roundabout at Buderim and Cooroy Streets to Coochin Street, to connect the existing pathways and provide a safer link for Currimundi school students and other pedestrians. Improving pedestrian safety is an important community priority and one which I remain committed to funding. I look forward to the completion of this new pathway prior to the commencement of the new school year.
Better parking at Grahame Stewart Park
Thanks again to those residents who last year assisted council with input into the Grahame Stewart Park landscape plan. Work to formalise the south-western car park is expected to start in early February. This will include two disability access bays, three standard bays, a bus set-down area and connecting path. The western end of Ilya Street will be open to one-way traffic only during construction. I am delighted to see the park continuing to be a place that the local community can enjoy and be proud of.
