Issues discussed included supporting a request to Cr Baberowski for a half court basketball court for the park in Rawson Avenue.
Discussion was had on rain gardens and how some had been beautified thanks to residents. However some other rain gardens remain an eyesore and BeCA would recommend individual residents contact Council to have their rain gardens upgraded. Fact sheets on rain gardens are available from Council.
Several trees in various parks have died during the current ‘dry’. The situation will be monitored.
BeCA will continue to monitor the mowing of parks. Mowers are travelling at quite a speed and possibly some sections are not getting a close cut.
There has been a further spike in vandalism across the estates. Photo evidence has been gathered and the police contacted. Council has been requested to repair damaged property.
Concern has been raised over the picking up and dropping off of children at Baringa State Primary School. The school population is expected to be around 600 by the end of this year and BeCA has been told the school is now accepting out of zone enrollments. Parking issues have arisen during busy times so driver care is required during these busy times.
A further 60 carpark spaces should become available early in March.
