Parking is “Super Dangerous”

Parking is “Super Dangerous”

This photo was taken today in Brunswick Place Sippy Downs at 2:50 p.m. sent to us by local resident Britt Cook who stated in her message “Absolute joke when parents of the schools around Sippy Downs don’t understand that parking this way is dangerous, super dangerous.. something needs to be done asap or there will be an accident!”

We agree but following local social media we note that parents picking up kids simply don’t have enough parking available to them when picking up kids at Chancellor State School Primary campus.

Britt tells us that she has lived in Columbus Street and in Brunswick place for the last 5 years and this issue is getting worse and worse by the day

From her perspective the roads are just not developed properly for the amount of car congestion especially at school pickup and dropoff time, a point that is hard to argue with.

Brit went on to tell us that she has seen so many near accidents occur while she was walking home from uni and driving around the area at this time she finds it disturbing.

Britt went onto say that the issues caused by the lack of local parking also disrupt families living in the area.

We are aware that the areas local government Representative Counselor Christian Dickson has been working very hard on a number of potential solutions. We have spoken to Mr Dickson and we look forward to presenting this information including an interview with Cr Christian Dickson very soon.

Coles Sippy Downs – SDDCA Pre-Opening Tour & Community Invitation

‘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.’

Exploring UNITY in CommUNITY with Christian Dickson

Exploring UNITY in CommUNITY with Christian Dickson

Yesterday our President Matt Druce and Secretary Jo Jenkins had the opportunity to meet with Local Government Division 6 Councillor,  Christian Dickson to discuss the SDDCA’s Unity in CommUNITY program.

Yesterday’s meeting with Christian was an opportunity for us as a community organisation to continue exploring UNITY in CommUNITY, the SDDCA’s vision of what we see is the way forward for local community organisations to support, resource and assist each other in the best possible way.

Having now met with Member for Kawana, Jarrod Bleijie MP and Local Government Division 6 Councillor, Christian Dickson we look forward to meeting with Federal Member for Fisher, Andrew Wallace MP in January 2017 and presenting the SDDCA’s Unity in CommUNITY program to him as well.

We are thrilled to announce that Cr Christian Dickson is the first signatory to the Unity in CommUNITY foundation document and look forward to securing Andrew Wallace’s and Jarrod Bleijie’s in the new year.

We extend an offer to all local residents, community organisations and non-profits to contact us at any time so that we may present SDDCA’s Unity in CommUNITY program to you as well. Once we have a clear and definite commitment from all our elected representatives we will be setting up meetings with each and every stakeholder in the Sippy Downs and District area and beyond linking all the tiers of community advocacy and service provision under the Unity in CommUNITY foundation document.

The SDDCA’s Unity in CommUNITY program is an exciting step for the SDDCA and for the community members we advocate for and with, and we look forward to any feedback, suggestions, or ideas that anyone has on how we can further improve our goal to deliver this program for the benefit of each and every one of you.
