‘Stories of Old Buderim’ book launch

I congratulate the Buderim Historical Society on the recent launch of ‘Stories of Old Buderim’. Comprised of 104 different stories originally published in the Buderim Chronicle, it is illustrated with a wonderful selection of historic photographs. This book provides an insight to some of the most significant periods in Buderim's rich history and it was my privileged to provide monies from my divisional discretionary fund for the printing of this valuable record. Copies are available from Pioneer Cottage, the Old Post Office and Books of Buderim.

Golf Links Road pathway

Work is almost complete on an extension to create a 1.8 metre wide concrete pathway along Golf Links Road.  Further sections will be completed as funds become available. During construction, it is possible that property access may be affected for short periods.

King Street pathway

Work is also underway to complete the missing pathway link along the southern side of King Street near Mayfield Street.

Council endeavours to avoid disturbing large and established trees on its projects where possible.  It is anticipated that no trees will be removed as part of this project.

I thank residents for their patience and for working with me to deliver these much anticipated additions to our community infrastructure. You can read the full story here.

Share pathways safely

While on the subject of pathways, did you know that all pathways in Queensland are shared between cyclists, pedestrians and other wheeled devices (unless otherwise signed)?

Everyone should keep left, keep the path clear and give way to pedestrians. For more information view the Road Safety section on council’s website.
