Our community is our future in Division 2
  • Thursday 20 June 2019

Sunshine Coast Council’s 2019/20 $848 million budget will deliver even more great projects to support our communities as they grow. 

Division 2 Councillor Tim Dwyer said the projects planned for his division over the next 12 months would help to achieve a healthy, smart, creative region.

“Whether you’re exploring our town centres, playing a sport or taking a leisurely stroll, we will be making plenty of improvements in Division 2 to help support our communities into the future,” Cr Dwyer said.

“The Caloundra Centre Activation project is key milestone for our local area. Not only will it provide a new town centre, it will make Caloundra the cultural and community hub for our entire region.

“We’re also looking after our sportsmen and women with the completion of stage 2 and 3 of the Regional Tennis Centre, as well as improvements to our Reserve 1000 sports fields, including improved clubhouse facilities for our little athletics and AFL teams.

“There’s lots of work going on along our coastal strip, with upgrades to our Coastal Pathway in Caloundra and Dicky Beach, and a pathway renewal on the Caloundra Esplanade – making it easier for residents to enjoy our active outdoor lifestyle.

“In Kings Beach we’ll further progress the design and planning for a future new Surf Life Saving facility, an important project for our region.

“Our communities are our future and the 2019/20 Sunshine Coast Council Budget will support Division 2 as our region and communities grow.”

  • $2.1 million for Stage 2 and 3 of the Regional Tennis Centre
