With a number of Management Committee members as apologies, a full Management Committee could not be completed early in September. However lively discussion on a variety of issues followed.
Cr Baberowski was in attendance.
A further more detailed report was delivered on the recent meeting with Council, BeCA and Police on behaviour issues around Canavan Gracie Recreational Park and a broader discussion followed. It seems Council will most likely position its CCTV option at the park.
Cr Baberowski reiterated the need for the community to provide a wider range of descriptive detail when making a report to police. Ideally this improved detail could involve safely obtained video, audio and descriptive evidence. At all times members of the public should ensure they do not place themselves into a dangerous position while in the vicinity of these youths.
The local parks and gardens are looking great at the moment and Council is to be congratulated on their neat and tidy appearance.
Council will trial several options along some sections of the dividing strip between the footpath and veloway along Bellvista Blvd. Grasses planted by Stockland have not survived and now a bare strip separates the two paths. Following several trials, Council which will determine which is the most cost-effective solution and it will become the future preferred replacement for this dividing strip.
An email will be forwarded to Cr Baberowski who in turn will request action from the State’s TMR (Traffic Main Roads) to adjust the signals.
A range of issues requiring repairs from Council which have been lodged with Council are all ‘in the pipeline’ or have been referred to the appropriate authority, e.g. Energex or Unity Water.
BeCA looks forward to receiving further information in relation to a “Fish Swap Out Day” planned by Council for April/May 2021 in a bid to remove ‘pest fish’ from the lakes at Bellvista.
Cr Baberowski had a copy of Council’s “Sunshine Coast Cultural Heritage Discovery Guide” which lists a range of things to do here on the Coast. Google “Sunshine Coast Cultural Heritage Discovery Guide” for further information or grab a booklet.
Caloundra West Lion’s Community Garden at Active Park in Bells Reach is looking great and is a credit to those involved. Contact the local Lions Club if you wish to be more information.
BeCA remains appalled at the number of dog walkers who do not clean up their pet’s droppings. The instances of dog droppings left on local footpaths has increased dramatically during the pandemic. Despite having Council Officers attend to follow up with dog walkers who openly disregard the rest of the community and do not pick up droppings, instances appear to have increased markedly.
BeCA’s Constitution says the Association’s Annual General Meeting is a Public Meeting. It is therefore recommended that the BeCA AGM be conducted at Bellvista Meeting Place on Monday November 2nd beginning at 6:45pm. All residents are invited to attend.
The meeting will be conducted under strict Covid19 Guidelines and employ social distancing. The Treasurer will present his report followed by the President who will present the Annual Report for 2020. If required, elections will be carried out.
The AGM under the newly elected BeCA Management Committee for 2021 will then hear of any General Business from the floor.
At the conclusion of General Business, the AGM meeting will be closed. We anticipate the meeting will close before 7:30pm.
Nomination forms for the 2021 BeCA Management Committee will be available from the website, the newsletter and from the offices of The Positive Property People at Bellvista Market Place.
Nominations may be lodged at the offices of The Positive Property People or to the Secretary. Her contact details are available on the BeCA website. (Mob: 0498 266 059 or email firstname.lastname@example.org)
Nominations for the 2021 BeCA Management Committee will close at 4PM on Monday October 19th. If any vacancies remain after the closure of nominations, further nominations can be taken from the floor of the AGM on November 2nd.
BeCA remains hopeful that construction of the Baringa Mobile phone tower will begin shortly. BeCA understands a large concrete pole from Rocla will be available early in October and that hopefully the new Mobile Phone Tower will be fully operational by December, if all goes to plan.
