Council has announced a wonderful new Community Centre currently under construction at Baringa. Council insists that the new Centre would be one for Bellvista, Arbour, Bells Reach and Baringa communities with activities involving all local communities.

Council is keen to see that Baringa should not develop all on its own, but Community Facilities would be shared with the neighbouring Bellvista, Bells Reach and Arbour Communities.
Connectivity is a major theme run by Council to ensure all of its facilities are available for all of the community.
On Friday July 15th, BeCA representatives met with Cr Baberowski onsite to investigate how the physical sense of a connected community could be further enhanced with the construction of a connecting pathway between Arbour and the pathway leading into Little Mountain’s Koala Court.
It would be a spectacular walking track of several hundred metres passing through dense bush and crossing waterways, waterways which most likely become floodways following heavy rain.
The photos above and below illustrate some of the terrain any pathway would be required to navigate through.It would require a large amount of funding to complete the project. However there may be a chance funding could be found to foster the new “Connected Community”.
BeCA has asked Cr Baberowski to proceed with a feasibility study for the project in case funding becomes available.
