Parking for residents
I know it’s frustrating for residents when they can’t get a parking spot in their own town on market days. We all know the two market days are great for bringing visitors to Eumundi but the people who live here need to be able to grab their milk and bread, and generally go about their day-to-lives, seven days a week.
As part of Council’s parking management plan for Eumundi, it has now provided additional two hour parking on Wednesday and Saturday (along Napier Road, adjacent to the off-street car park) to further reduce parking pressure in Memorial Drive.
Additional entry signs have been added to assist in directing visiting motorists to off-street parking areas, and parking signs have been updated to conform to Queensland standards and ensure legibility. This parking management plan was supported by local community organisations, and I hope these improvements help ease the impact on residents and businesses.
Do you want this bus shelter?
I am keen to gauge usage of the bus shelter on Eumundi Range Road before considering its upgrade or removal. How many school kids, residents and visitors use this stop? Give me your thoughts by emailing email firstname.lastname@example.org. If I don’t hear from anyone, I will have to take it that the community doesn’t have firm views on the shelter and it’s possible it will be removed.
Meet and greet
Come along to my first ‘meet and greet’ session for 2015 on Wednesday 25 March. I’ll be at Lonergans Lane, opposite Fig Tree restaurant, between 10am-12pm. I’m looking forward to seeing you there.
