At its monthly Committee Meeting BeCA has decided to reschedule the Public Meeting previously set down for Nov 1st back to Nov 8th. This will allow ample time for residents to be informed via the newsletter of the Public Meeting. BeCA will be inviting our Councillor Anna Grosskreutz to address this meeting.
BeCA formalized its Sub Committees for 2011. You can see them HERE. Membership of any of BeCA’s Sub Committees is not restricted to BeCA Committee members but is open to all Bellvista residents. Contact our Secretary Tony Mohr if you wish to be involved in any Sub Committee.
Meeting dates and Newsletter Print dates were considered for 2011. The document with the proposed dates can be downloaded HERE.
The BeCA Committee then covered these outstanding issues:
1. BeCA has been lobbying for some time to fix the dangerous Telstra Pit at the corner of Cougal Circuit and O’Reilly Drive. The BeCA President has information this is a SCRC issue and he will strongly pursue this with the Council.
2. BeCA has been pursuing three issues throughout 2010, emergency access to Bellvista, the dangerous student bus stop and the Bellvista Blvd foot crossing at the foot of the hill. BeCA will continue to pursue short term solutions to these problems with SCRC.
3. SCRC has installed new Beware Of Wildlife Signs at the entrance to Dumbarton Drive. Had the signs been installed about 30 metres north on Bellvista Blvd up from the roundabout with Dumbarton Drive they would be visible to every vehicle entering the estate rather than only those entering Dumbarton Drive. BeCA will contact SCRC to have the sign moved to a more visible spot. BeCA has contacted Stockland to consider removing the Land Sales Office sign in Lomond Crescent near the roundabout with Balmoral Blvd as it blocks the vision of some motorists entering the roundabout.
4. BeCA will continue to monitor the progress of the following projects being undertaken by SCRC. These projects include the new Toilet Block for the main park, the new Rawson St Park playground equipment promised by SCRC for installation in November 2010 and the renaming of the main park near Lake Bellvista to Canavan/Gracie Park.
5. Anecdotal evidence from residents and BeCA Committee members indicate that, though far from perfect, the behaviour of helicopters over the estate seems to have improved. BeCA will be suggesting that residents be informed when there will be intensive helicopter training over the estate.
