Cr Baberowski congratulated BeCA on 10 years of valuable work representing the Bellvista, Bells Reach and Arbour Communities. He valued the input and feedback from BeCA on issues affecting our residents.
Council has reviewed its policy on tree from roadside verges. Residents who can offer a case can apply to have a tree in front of their home removed. Previously it had been difficult to convince Council that a tree should be removed. In future Council will look more leniently on each case by case issue.
Bellvista Blvd between Dumbarton Drive and Storaway Avenue is to be resurfaced. The date has been set for some time over December and January, well outside of school hours. All this will occur weather permitting. Residents could expect a disruption to traffic movements over a fortnight or so. Detours will be in operation while the resurfacing works are completed.
The new Baringa Community Facility is now expected to be open for business around February 2019. It is expected to provide a range of Government Services which should benefit local residents.
BeCA has referred graffiti issues asking Cr Baberowski to ensure these concerns are addressed. Generally, Sunshine Council uses the Youth Justice System outcomes to clean up graffiti around the area and it is expected that BeCA’s concerns will be added to that list. Young offenders doing “Community Work” are given graffiti removal tasks.
Senior Constable Peter listed a series of incidents which had occurred in our area. He reported on some thefts, stolen vehicles and other call outs for issues such as excessive noise and domestic disputes. Overall calls for service remain relatively low in our area in comparison to some other neighbourhoods.
He was excited about the installation of Closed Circuit TV in the Caloundra CBD and the benefit this would be for local police to monitor activity across the Caloundra CBD area and be able to better protect local residents.
