There was much general discussion over several issues at the recent BeCA Management Committee Meeting for October.
BeCA had received no community feedback on the proposal that Council construct a half court basketball court at Canavan Gracie recreational Park. BeCA has advised Council of this.
BeCA will advise Council Parks & Gardens that though both Canavan Gracie and Quinn Park are presented in great condition the same cannot be said for Active Park and Arbour Park where weeds appear to be a problem.
There was an update on the receipt of nominations for the 2020 BeCA Management Committee after a positive response to vacancies. These will be finalized at the 2019 AGM at the Public Meeting on Monday November 4th at the Bellvista Meeting Place 6:45pm. There has been a further nomination for treasurer which will also be determined at the meeting.
Mark McArdle will be a speaker at this meeting along with representatives from Council’s Caloundra Aerodrome Management team. Cr Baberowski and Senior Constable Peter from Queensland Police Service will also provide reports.
There have been more reports of inappropriate behaviour from young teens over the recent school holidays though there seems to have been a decrease of incidents involving graffiti. There is a follow up meeting planned arising from the recent Youth Behaviour Forum for later this month where this type of incident will be raised.
A recent news item congratulated a Brisbane Council on providing improved playground facilities for children. The new equipment included in-ground trampolines similar to the ones Sunshine Coast Council wishes to remove from Edge Park on Bells Reach. It seems the safety level of this equipment is determined by the relevant Council safety officer. What is deemed safe for a Brisbane Council area is not deemed safe for Bells Reach!
The president and secretary shared their experiences from the tour of the under construction new Baringa Tavern. It seems the new Baringa shopping precinct is having an effect on our own Bellvista Market Place.
BeCA welcomed 8 new members to the the Association.
