This morning the Avid Property Group officially opened Peter Crosby way which is the brand new connection road into Harmony at Palmview.
It has been some 15 years since Palmview was originally envisaged and today marks one step closer to delivery of this brand new master planned community at the very Heart of the Sunshine Coast.
The Sippy Downs and district community association and the volunteers that have driven it along for the past 13 years played an integral part in ensuring that this development had the best possible balance with the least possible negative impact upon the Sippy Downs community.
Councillor Christian Dickson from Division 6, Sunshine Coast Council said of this brand new opening ” This is a fantastic new residential community right in the heart of the Sunshine Coast providing over 20 hectares open space for recreational purposes forming part of the total 100 hectares of open space for the community. This will serve as further community access areas for the existing Sippy Downs community and will provide many new road access points both North to the Sunshine Motorway and South to the Caloundra interchange at Caloundra Road and direct access to the Bruce Highway so in terms of Road access this is good for the community.”
The community association would like to thank have a property group for inviting us to attend and we look forward to forging strong relationships between the entire Palmview community and the Sippy Downs community as a whole.
‘On Tuesday the SDDCA had the opportunity to tour the brand new Coles Sippy Downs store and with just over 10 days to go until the store opens we would have to say that is certainly shaping up to be a refreshingly new and exciting shopping experience.
We would like to thank the Coles management team for the opportunity to take a look at the store today and we are very much looking forward to attending the community carnival family festival on Friday the 20th of January from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on site at Coles Sippy Downs.
Coles invites the entire community to come on down for the community carnival evening with sideshow alley games and rides, animal farm and jumping castles plus MKR live cooking with Chris and Cookie, Hot 91.1 in attendance plus lots more! And, a fireworks display to finish off the evening.
The store officially opens for trading at 8 a.m. the following morning, Saturday the 21st of January and we are told that there will be a whole range of amazing specials available in store to celebrate.
Coles Sippy Downs has been a long time coming but it’s finally here! Make sure you don’t miss out on their amazing FREE launch event!
PS free parking will be available on the street and at USC from 4:30pm.’
Sippy Downs was one of the first master planned communities on the Sunshine Coast but being the first is not always a good thing, Sippy Downs is a suburb which experienced a lot of challenges in the early days and to this day still has challenges that are yet to be overcome with boundary fences high on that list.
These quite lengthy sections of residential boundary fencing that face onto major public thoroughfares, two of which are currently under investigation by the Sippy Downs and District Community Association with the help of local residents and landowners, are an issue that in essece falls between the gaps.
Over the last couple of years the association has been exploring and reaching out to affected parties to look at ways to approach this issue and it’s with great pleasure that we can announce that a number of the landowner community members attended a meeting last week forming and SDDCA sub committee dedicated to exploring boundary boundary fence issues for the entire area with University Way and Springhill Drive boundary fences identified as prime candidates for the initial exploration. These 2 stretches front onto highly visible community ingress and egress routes and as such are receiving initial attention with a view to identifying and progressing to locations relative to the successes of these initial explorations.
