The BeCA Management Committee met last night (Tuesday Oct 7th).
The major points discussed at the meeting included that BeCA will apply for a Stockland Community Grant. If successful and the guidelines have been adequately adhered to, BeCA would use any funds gained to update its website. There are certain facets of the site which no longer work properly (forms and links at the foot of each page) so it is believed a major update would spruce the site up and get all aspects working effectively.
There was an update on preparations for the Annual General Meeting on November 3rd and the election of the 2014/15 BeCA Management Committee. Nomination forms are available from the Positive Property People Real Estate Office at Bellvista Market Place and completed nomination forms may be left there as well.
The yellow bike from the former Ray White Office will be a door prize at the upcoming BeCA Public Meeting at 6PM November 3rd at Bellvista Meeting Place. Each person attending will receive a free ticket in the draw. People will be able to purchase further tickets at $1 each or 6 for $5. What a great Christmas gift this would be!

Discussion was had on the Bellvista Meeting Place. BeCA will seek a further meeting with Council to sort out any lingering concerns. BeCA is anxious that a local management team be in put in place for the Bellvista Meeting Place as quickly as possible. It is felt a local Management Group would be more effective and lead to better use of the facility.
Concerns over some damage to one of the biopods has been solved with SC Council upgrading it.
There will be a small ‘stick-on’ in the next Connector Newsletter for residents to attach to their letter box on Halloween. The sticker will say that “Trick or Treaters” are welcome at that home.
BeCA has decided it will no longer pursue a “BeCA smart phone App”.
It was noted there has been an increase in police presence around the estate. This is a direct result of complaints to Caloundra Police regarding hooning, speeding and inappropriate behaviour.
Regretfully Bellvista is a hot spot for thefts from cars. BeCA urges all residents to lock their vehicles and not leave any valuables in parked cars.
New members were voted on as BeCA members from recent membership applications.
BeCA farewelled two of its Management Committee members, Ian Eather and Neal Costello. Ian has left the area and is no longer eligible while Neal has been rushed into another volunteer position with another organisation. BeCA sincerely thanks both members for their contributions. John Lehmann will assume the role of Treasurer.
The next Public Meeting will begin at 6:00 PM on Monday November 3rd where our first speaker will be Mayor Mark Jamieson. Kevin Hegarty Chief Executive, Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service will then provide an update on the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital.
It is expected the AGM part of the night will be quite brief.
Cr Rick Baberowski will provide a Councillor’s Report.
There will be tea, coffee, cheese and biscuits after the meeting for those who wish to stay on and have a chat.
