BeCA held its July Management Committee meeting last night. Many ongoing issues were discussed and each BeCA Sub-Committee made a report.
The new toilet block near the Land Sales Office is due to be completed shortly (below left). The toilet block is all but completed and the sewerage connection should finished in about a week (photo below right).
SCRC continue to re turf older ‘roadside garden areas’. This is designed to improve line of sight for drivers and cut back on maintenance costs. The new pathway to the east of the recently sold block adjacent to The Bellcarra Retirement Resort has been completed and complemented with new picnic tables and seating.

BeCA has learnt construction should get underway on the Child Care Centre on the corner of Lomond Cres and Stornaway Avenue as soon as the company completes construction of a similar facility on the Gold Coast. The construction team will then head from the Gold Coast to Bellvista to commence construction here.
Some concerns have been raised regarding traffic issues around the new Child Care Centre especially during Unity College drop-off and pick-up times. Residents will need to show due care when using the roundabout when the new centre has been completed.
There appears to have been an increase of the number of dogs off leashes in the last week or so. Perhaps this has been due to gates being left open during the mid year school holidays by children.
There still is no news on the Notice Board being organised by IGA for the Bellvista Market Place Shopping Centre.
Concern was raised over the non-closure of the old unsafe crossing point on Bellvista Blvd. BeCA was also to follow up with SCRC on the seating at a couple of bus stops on the estate.
During “General Business” the following 4 resolutions were passed to be forwarded onto Councillor Grosskreutz for attention by Council:
1. That the Bellvista Community Association approaches Councillor Grosskreutz to pursue a Sunshine Coast Regional Council policy agreement that only Community Friendly Industries be granted renewed leases at Caloundra Airport.
2. That BeCA approaches Councillor Grosskreutz to pursue improved road signage around the estate (a) to the new Bellvista Market Place Shopping Centre and (b) to provide improved exit information to Caloundra and to Brisbane for traffic leaving the estate.
3. That BeCA approaches Councillor Grosskreutz to pursue a formal commitment from SCRC on the acquisition of the current Land Sales Office and surrounding facilities currently owned by Stockland as a future Bellvista Community Resource.
4. That BeCA approaches Councillor Grosskreutz to pursue to completion of the paved footpath on O’Reilly Drive between Samson Circuit and Huntley Place. (see photo above left)

This chap below was observed Tuesday morning in the park beside the footpath between the footbridge and Huntley Place. It seems he is a a harmless “Carpet Snake” but should remain a reminder to all residents to keep their eyes open especially on sunny days on school holidays.
