Chopperline report this week will see them doing some testing of trainee pilots. There should be some flights today (Tuesday) with another two tests on Wednesday. Apart from those flights, it is a ‘same as usual’ forecast.
BeCA representatives will meet with Cr Baberowski and Stockland this morning (Tuesday) to discuss the proposed hand over of the old Land Sales Office precinct to the SCRC. Eventually the facility will be handed to BeCA to manage. BeCA has a list of up to 5 or 6 organizations which are hoping to use the facility once it passes into Community hands.
BeCA was represented at a Public Meeting in Beerwah last evening where the topic was upgrades to streetscapes in the town. Council arranged the public meeting for public comment. It was also seen as an opportune time to consider a possible future “Community Association” for the town.
With Beerwah being seen by some as a ‘divided’ town, split in two by the train line, a future Community Association would be a group to unite residents for the betterment of the town. A Community Association could also provide feedback to Council on how the hinterland community can best advantage itself with the future construction of Caloundra South and the new hospital precinct at Kawana.
Caloundra South is forecast to have a major shopping centre ‘the size of Chermside” which would have an impact on Beerwah shops and shoppers. Perhaps a Community Association would best prepare Beerwah businesses and residents to best manage challenges and opportunities by promoting communication between the developer, SCRC and the community?
