Our estate is just emerging from a summer drenching which saw around 400mls of rain fall since early Friday morning. Ex-tropical cyclone “Oswald” dropped a huge amount of rain along with strong blustery winds across our estate over the weekend.
The grass of our parks and recreational areas has returned to a bright healthy green color and hopefully the black areas where the grass has died during the prolonged dry spell will regenerate as the warmth of summer returns.
The new adventure playground over at Bells reach looks a picture with the vibrant green grass of the park making the spot a highly popular one with Bellvista and Bells Reach youngsters. Click on all photos for a larger view.
BeCA has already reported downed trees across the pathway near the Bellvista Market Place (photo below left), the washed out tan bark from the playground near the tennis courts and the potholes on Bellvista Blvd (photo below right) to SCRC for attention. Hopefully the graffiti around Canavan Gracie Recreational Park will be cleaned up shortly as well.
Residents may need to be patient with council as BeCA expects there will be a mountain of service requests for SCRC to deal with.
If you have a concern which SCRC needs to attend to, use the Service Request Form available HERE to report it. Even this web link appeared ‘overloaded’ at the time of writing.
The rain should also mean relief from the dust problem for residents living close to the new Bells Reach development. This rain will help the grass planted by Stockland on the open areas of Bells Reach to grow and further help with the dust problem for everybody.
The recent Resident Survey conducted by Stockland achieved a return rate of 21% which means BeCA has gained a $500 donation from Stockland for supporting the survey on our website and Facebook pages. BeCA thanks all residents who returned the survey and also to Stockland for generous reward.
BeCA begins its work for 2013 this evening with its first Management Committee Meeting for the year.
