Pathway improvements and pedestrian safety upgrades in Mudjimba, Maroochydore and Coolum, sprucing up Maroochydore’s Ocean Street and bringing the Marcoola Master Plan to life are Division 8 highlights in Sunshine Coast Council’s 2024–25 Budget.

Divisional Councillor Taylor Bunnag said he was excited to deliver projects that strengthened our lifestyle, connectivity and community.

“I’ve hit the ground running to make sure this Budget delivers practical outcomes for local people,” Cr Bunnag said.

“I’m confident residents will be pleased with the projects supported in the Budget – there’s plenty of wins for our area.

“My focus this financial year is on ensuring there’s a balance between what’s most important to our community to thrive and making sure we have a financially sustainable Sunshine Coast Council.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing a range of initiatives progress, including the Ocean Street placemaking renewal, which aims to enhance an important regional cultural destination for food, dining and live music.

“Marcoola Beach Streetscape renewal has received $150,000 for street trees, more accessible pathways and a street art initiative thanks to valuable community feedback.

“Based on extensive community feedback, Mudjimba will benefit from improved pedestrian safety upgrades in high volume traffic areas, which will include two entry statement signs with line marking giving a welcoming entrance to the town.

“Residents in Coolum and surrounding suburbs like Yaroomba and Mount Coolum will be excited to know that we are progressing to detailed design works to deliver a much-needed footpath along South Coolum Road, to help make sure families can get to school safely. 

“As a regular user of Power Memorial Park in Mudjimba with my young family, I’m delighted that Council will be upgrading the playground, to complement the works we are delivering in this area.

“We’re also focusing on delivering practical improvements in places like Maroochydore, with the renewal of the Maroochy Waters Drive revetment wall and a $1.3 million upgrade to our stormwater network on School Road and Wright Street.”

Division 8 encompasses Coolum Beach, Marcoola, Maroochydore, Mount Coolum, Mudjimba, Pacific Paradise, Point Arkwright, Twin Waters and Yaroomba.
