State Government Stimulus funding for Beerwah and Landsborough projects
Continuing the Landsborough streetscape project and upgrading Turner Park at Beerwah are now secured thanks to funding through the Queensland Government’s $100 million South East Queensland Community Stimulus Program.
Both projects are part of a $9.03 million funding injection to kick-start 16 projects worth more than $22 million across the Sunshine Coast to improve parks, streetscapes and sporting facilities, provide new playgrounds and generate local jobs sooner than planned.
Beerwah’s Turner Park upgrades include improved pathways and landscaping as well as recreational infrastructure and space.
In Landsborough, improvements are planned for the park side of Cribb Street. These works will continue to deliver a streetscape designed with community feedback, featuring seating, shelters and arbours, as well as lighting and landscaping, all to create a stronger destination with improved amenity and more street activation.
Heritage Calendar – Share your photos!
Sunshine Coast Council’s 2022 Heritage Calendar photo competition theme is ‘The Great Outdoors…Celebrating fun days of sun and adventure’. Send us your old photos of camping out in the hinterland, lazy days spent at the beach, even flying high above the region!
The competition is open until August 16, entry is free and winning photos will be included in the calendar. Enter online at heritage.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au or at council’s Customer Contact Centre. The Heritage Levy funded calendar is produced annually to celebrate and remember the region’s heritage.
Bring on Brisbane 2032
I enthusiastically join the rest of council in celebrating the International Olympic Committee’s announcement that Brisbane has secured the rights to host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
It will be exciting to see the Sunshine Coast play an integral role in Brisbane 2032, particularly as a home to four key venues and several sporting events, including football, basketball, marathon, mountain biking, cycling and kiteboarding.
I am beyond proud to be part of the region that will host these future games. I look forward to seeing our community come together and support both the organising of the games and the athletes, many of whom are still just dreaming of becoming a future Olympian!
