BeCA held its first Committee Meeting for 2012 on Monday Jan 30th. Much of the meeting was dealing with information which had already been made available via this website and regular updates by the Secretary to members.
The new bus seats have been installed. The seats are fairly basic but will suit the purpose and will mean young adults will not have to sit on pavements waiting for a bus.
BeCA will remind Cr Grosskreutz of the need for added signage in and out of the estate. The confusing road design deters people from using Bellvista Market Place facilities and it can be difficult for visitors who are unfamiliar with the road layout here. Anna was going to bring the matter up in council as a special case. Town planners had already decided that road signage in our estate met “the guidelines’.
All roadworks on Bellvista Blvd were to be completed by Feb 29th ‘weather permitting’. The recent 24 inches of rain we received may put that date back a couple of weeks. This morning traffic attempting to leave the estate was backed up beyond the Bellvista Blvd/Dumbarton Drive roundabout.
A mow by SCRC Sub-Contractors of all parks is scheduled for early this week but this may not occur owing to all the recent rain. Another cut of lawns is scheduled for next week when much of the parkland around the estate will have dried out (as long as there isn’t any more rain!)

Invitations will be extended to all Division 1 SCRC election candidates to attend the next BeCA Public Meeting scheduled for 6:45pm on Monday March 5th in the Land Sales Office on Lomond Cres. Candidates who have not previously made a presentation to the community will be provided with the opportunity to do so.
BeCA recently contacted Mayoral Candidate Debbie Blumel to re affirm its position that any leases being extended at Caloundra Airport should be to “Community Friendly” industries.
Road signs in Bellvista Blvd as you enter the estate near Dumbarton Drive have been re-ordered as requested by BeCA.
Recent heavy rain has cleaned the lakes out ‘to a certain extent’. Red Azolla is much less of a problem right now. SCRC put much of the rubbish in the lake down to storm water inflow following recent rains. BeCA has noted the Picitup Program and is considering how it may be involved in this program. You can read more about Picitup HERE.
BeCA looks forward to close liaison with SCRC Parks and Gardens. Supervisors are returning to work for 2012 and already BeCA has made contact with the Supervisor responsible for our estate. These tree have made a ‘back from the dead’ return to life. The recent rains have been responsible for their re birth. SCRC Parks and Gardens will investigate strategies that can be used to help retain water around these trees which were planted on the top of mounds. This unfortunate planting has meant rain water drains away from the trees thus depriving them of water.
Ian Eather reported the first Bellvista Connector Newsletter for 2012 was being edited before being sent off for printing at the end of this week. It should be available for the volunteer deliverers mid next week and could be expected in most Bellvista homes by mid February.
The meeting ended with a lengthy discussion on the Caloundra South Master Plan documents it was recently be given by Stockland. You can view an onsite internet version HERE.
Some rumours doing the rounds indicate the new lease “Pizza Shop” may have more to offer than just Pizzas. It appears the owners previous business provided a range of take away foods including pizza, fish n chips and others.
