Council delivered its $782 million 2020/21 budget on June 25 and it includes a diverse mix of valuable projects to support our community in Division 7.

I’m really pleased for the many sporting groups and organisations who use the hugely popular Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex to see a $925,000 upgrade to this facility at Fishermans Road. This will include the development of a new eastern oval as well as field lighting, drainage, irrigation and car parking.

Council will also invest just over $1 million on important transportation projects across Division 7. This includes upgrades to the Power Road intersection and realignment, delineation and lightning upgrades to improve motorist safety on Lindsay Road, Buderim and Petrie Creek Road, Rosemount.

The Bradman Avenue Foreshore Cod Hole Park in Maroochydore will undergo a $200,000 upgrade to the pedestrian pavement, signage, wayfinding and path lighting from the Eudlo Creek Bridge to the boat ramp. There will also be an upgrade of public amnesties at the boat ramp.

If you’d like to know more about what this year’s budget has in store for your neighbourhood, visit council’s website for all the details on Division 7 and the region as a whole.

New loo on Lindsay Rd

Have you seen the striking new loo on Lindsay Road, opposite the post office? This architecturally designed building is a huge improvement on the previous facility both visually and functionally.

It includes an ambulant toilet with bench seating, a disability toilet including baby change facilities and wash basin. A large concrete hand wash basin is also locoated at the entry to the building.

Overall, I’m really pleased with the outcome and I hope you like it too. I think this new facility really fits into our beautiful village from a visual standpoint.
