1. Landscape Committee Chairman Paul Harrison has been following up on issues raised at Monday Night’s Community Meeting. There was much concern about the lake and its current condition. Paul has heard back from the SCRC and has been informed the brown stain in the lake is the result of a normal algal bloom outbreak. Usually the outbreak is green but when effected by sunshine the green turns to an unsightly brown. This is just nature at work and the brown stain will disappear shortly.
Recent rains has but the SCRC under a lot of pressure to keep up with maintenance. Council will be cleaning rubbish out of the lake in due course as workmen become available. A dinghy will be deployed for workers to remove the rubbish. BeCA has requested it be supplied with a scoop so rubbish near the banks can be removed by BeCA members.
Council, though delighted with this request, is unable to do so because of possible future litigation issues.
2. Development of the Bellvista Shopping Village is progressing well as this photo shows. It is muddy work right now but the construction area has been pumped out. The footpath running on the eastern boundary can again be used safely.
3. BeCA has been informed by SCRC that Stockland is responsible for the maintenance of the tennis courts. A request to repair the net posts had been referred to Council. A request has now been referred to Stockland to have the tennis nets posts repaired.
It is disappointing that it appears inappropriate use of the tennis court nets has led to their current condition. It is hoped that when repaired, residents and their children will use the wonderful tennis court facility and ensure its condition remains suitable for all members of the community to enjoy.
4. Nasty potholes near the pedestrian crossover on Bellvista Blvd have been repaired by SCRC.
5. Councillor Grosskreutz has requested BeCA forward a letter on to her which she can table at an upcoming SCRC Meeting on Tuesday of next week to discuss the future of Caloundra Airport. Issues raised by residents who attended the Community Meeting on Monday have been included in the letter. Not all residents attending the meeting were in favour of relocating or closing Caloundra Airport. A show of hands indicated a sizeable majority of residents in attendance supported relocation or closure. What was well received by most people was the need to re visit the “Fly Neighbourly Policy” which makes recommendations to pilots on acceptable behaviour whilst over houses near the airport.
BeCA has requested copies of the current Fly Neighbourly Policy as well as reasonable maps indicating all aircraft Flight Paths over the Bellvista Estate.
