BeCA Management Committee welcomed new committee member Nigel Marsh on board at its April Meeting. Nigel had previously attended a Management Committee meeting and was keen to be involved. Nigel fills the vacancy recently left by the resignation of former Treasure Kerri Baxter. Nigel and his wife live in Bells Reach.
Some concerns have been raised regarding inappropriate behaviour after dark near and around the lake area by some young members of the community. BeCA urges all residents living near the Canavan Gracie Recreational Park area to report all and any inappropriate behaviour to the police. You can use 000 or call Caloundra Police Station direct on (07) 5439 4444. A resident who recently reported some poor behaviour was immediately patched through from the police station to a patrol car to provide all details. The patrol car then attended the area.
It is everyone’s responsibility to report inappropriate behaviour. The sooner we rid this community of these offenders, the better it will be for everyone. We need your help now!
BeCA continues to receive email correspondence on inappropriate behaviour by helicopters. These are filed and where necessary forwarded on to the relevant authorities.
Councillor Baberowski attended the Management Committee Mtg and reported he was unaware of any upcoming meeting organised by CASA where the Caloundra Aerodrome Noise issue was to be discussed.
The BeCA Landscaping spokesperson reported that weeding and mulching continued to be the major focus of the Bellvista Council Gardening team over the next few weeks. Council sub-contractors were again cleaning out biopods and they reported they were disappointed that several biopods were still being used to dump lawn clippings. These biopods should be left clear of all rubbish and garden waste to ensure they operated effectively to clean storm water ‘naturally’ prior to it finding its way into local waterways and eventually the Pumicestone Passage.
The SCRC lawn mowing sub-contractors continue to do a marvelous job.
The ‘missing’ footpath in O’Reilly Drive is to be extended to the bus stop near Maroon Crt to be funded from Cr Baberowski’s ‘Discretionary’ Fund. The final piece to extend the pathway again from Maroon Crt to Huntley Place will go onto SCRC’s major works list for 2014/5. Cr Baberowski is conscious of the need to preserve some of his Discretionary Funds to ensure the new Community Meeting Place is fully completed and equipped.
The next copy of the Connector Newsletter will be delayed a week or so following some hold ups with the production of the March edition. It has only been recently delivered to homes.
Mayor Mark Jamieson will be invited to speak at the next BeCA Public Meeting which will be held in the old Land Sales Office on June 2nd. If he is unavailable we will again invite the incredibly interesting and entertaining speaker we had recently who spoke on SCRC Recycling. BeCA received extremely positive feedback from people who attended the last presentation on recycling so it was believed she would be an excellent person to have if Mayor Jamieson was unavailable.
A wine tasting surprise will be a feature for residents who wish to stay on after the June 2nd Public Meeting.
There may be a need to reschedule the September Public Meeting to later in the month and prevent a clash with the Community Meeting Centre refurbishment.
