The mowing cycle is underway around the estate. Despite being wet underfoot everyone hopes the parks and gardens will look better after this mow. Grass growing has appeared to have slowed a little as the weather has begun to cool off.
Unofficial rainfall figures for the estate have the current rainfall total for 2011 at around 1350+mls. On average we could have expected around 750mls at this time of year.
This puts the current rainfall total at almost 600+ mls above average or heading on towards 25″ in the ‘old’ terms! Caloundra usually receives around 1650mls per year.
BeCA has requested that if possible Councillor Grosskreutz arrange a meeting between BeCA Executive and the ULDA to discuss issues Bellvista2 will create for the estate.
BeCA has also requested that SCRC finish the new crossing point on Bellvista Blvd ASAP. Road signs need to be moved to more appropriate places for the new crossing point and the old crossing point needs to be ‘closed’.
Building the new toilet block continues despite the wet weather. The rear wall of the toilet block will become a hitup wall for use by people using the tennis court area. However there is a concern the new hitup wall will become a target for graffiti. BeCA has already put in a service request to have the graffiti around the main park area removed.
Council has received this request and it has been passed on to the relevant area for attention. You can further support this request by completing a “SCRC Service Request” by following this link. You can also access this link via the “Handy Links” tab.

Some graffiti has also been noted at the BBQ area at the park in Rawson St. The more residents who complain by using the SCRC Service Request link, the quicker some action will occur. If you read the Parks & Gardens Update post below you will notice that the SCRC is responding to “numerous customer service requests in regards to line of sight issues due to vegetation on the road verge where these bio pods are located”. Remember the old saying, “The squeaky wheel gets the oil”.
