BeCA has received a heartfelt email thanking the Association for its decision to name Canavan Gracie Recreational Park from Laurie Gracie on behalf of herself and her family. The naming ceremony was of special importance to her and was most appreciated.
Though helicopter activity has decreased recently, BeCA has decided to again visit Chopperline and further cement communication channels with them. There have been changes in staffing at Chopperline and BeCA’s previous contacts there are no longer with that organisation. There continue to be days when the behaviour of helicopters over the estate causes concern.
It appears the trail bike issue at the northern end of the estate has decreased causing less concern for residents. BeCA hasn’t received any follow up communication to indicate the problem still exists. However BeCA will continue to press Caloundra Police on the issue and maintain pressure on inappropriate use of trail bikes in areas neighbouring the estate.
Weeds are causing the Bellvista Gardening Team problems. As soon as one area is sprayed and the weeds die off, it seems a new lots of weeds take their place. Mulching may be a part solution to the problem.
Our next meeting is a Public Meeting scheduled for Monday May 6th and will focus on recycling. We will have a presentation from a local identity on worm farms as well as a multi media presentation on the SCRC Recycling program. General Business at that meeting will provide an opportunity for residents to raise issues of concern.
BeCA is having some problems finding a printer who is prepared to produce 1500 copies of the Business Directory. The BeCA Business Directory will feature businesses with a close connection to our estate and is will be delivered free to all homes on the estate. It seems a run 1500 copies isn’t large enough to interest many printers. Others are prepared to create the 1500 copy Business Directory sheet but only in black and white. If you have a contact who will be interested in providing BeCA with a quote for 1500 A4 sized reasonable copy colored sheets with a small magnet on the rear please contact our secretary HERE.

BeCA has been asked to nominate a ‘passive form of fund-raising cause’ as a beneficiary of any sales via “Open Shed”. Stockland is promoting the “Open Shed” website as a method to promote community spirit. BeCA will be informing Stockland that its preferred project would be the maintenance or updating of playground equipment across the estate.
BeCA has been requested to add a post to its website regarding The Bazaar Market, conducted each Saturday morning at Corbould Racecourse. You can read the post directly above this one.
