Sponsor found for University Way Fence Project

Sponsor found for University Way Fence Project

SDDCA MEDIA RELEASE

Sippy Downs and District Community Association (SDDCA) President Matt Druce is pleased to announce that a sponsor has been secured for the final stage of the University Way fence project between Colombia and Albany Streets, Sippy Downs.

Mr Druce said, “This is an important community project as this particular roadway is one of the area’s most used local roads and is in desperate need of repair and paint. A joint project last year between the SDDCA, Cr Christian Dickson, former State Member Steve Dickson and the Buderim Men’s Shed saw the restoration of the fence from Oxford Close to Scholars Drive. This has made an incredible difference to the amenity of the area with stage 2 set to remedy this long-standing eyesore.

“At the SDDCA AGM in August, we made an open call for sponsorship for the restoration of the remainder of the fence along University Way from Columbia Street to Albany Street.  I am pleased to advise residents that through town planning consultants Innovative Planning Solutions, Mr Graham Hobbs and Mr Ian Tregoning, the owners and Directors of Living Choice Australia, have responded to that call and advised that LCA will provide sponsorship for this project.

Completion of stage 2 of this project will see the erection of “Project Thank You” signage at the beginning and ends of stage 1 and 2 of the project, recognising the efforts and contributions of all the organisations and businesses involved. This has been approved by Council for a period of 12 months for which we are grateful.

We are aiming to commence work in the new year and are calling for expressions of interest from local industry relevant businesses to put up their hand and volunteer to assist in the management and delivery of this final stage, in turn securing the opportunity to have their business acknowledged in the “Project Thank You” signage.

“The SDDCA has established good working relationships with many of the landowners in our fast-growing area and it is encouraging to see this genuine desire by Living Choice Australia to provide for the Sippy Downs community.  As well as the proposal of community facilities put forward by Living Choice Palmview on land bordering Chancellor Park Estate, they also have approval for a large residential development in Palmview. Our aim is to continue to work with them and other developers on matters of community interest.”

Mr Hobbs said, “Living Choice provides a wide choice of living options and leisure facilities in safe, secure communities located in sought-after locations. We value engagement with local residents and were only too pleased to provide sponsorship for this community project run by the Sippy Downs & District Community Association.”

2nd Chance – Introduction to Electric Bikes group ride at Sippy Downs

2nd Chance – Introduction to Electric Bikes group ride at Sippy Downs

As published back on the 20th of September The Sunshine Coast Environment Council (SCEC) has scheduled an “Introduction to Electric Bikes” group ride at Sippy Downs as part of this year’s Bike Week events. We have received funding from the Sunshine Coast Council to deliver 12 monthly rides across the region, and they are part of SCEC’s commitment to encouraging more sustainable transport choices for some journeys.

The first Sippy Downs ride was cancelled due to the weather with a second opportunity now available from 8 am to 10 am on Sunday 11 November, departing from Windmill Park, Oxford Close, Sippy Downs with a lovely ride scheduled along the lake, and thence into Brightwater estate.

The rides are free to participants, and bikes and helmets are supplied.  SCEC Reps will commence with a technical and safety briefing and finish with a friendly morning tea.

There are a LIMITED number of positions with just 10 spots available so bookings will fill up fast.

Bookings can be made by emailing etherealcrew@gmail.com or telephoning 0407116105.

(This updated invite was sent to us by Sunshine Coast Environment Council)
The milk is spilling!

The milk is spilling!

The old adage don’t cry over spilled milk is very wise indeed and the message is simple… the only time we have any power to enact change is before something happens.

Something is about to happen, the milk is spilling, but it’s not spilled yet! As we have shared before, it is important that the community stands up and shows their desire for a much needed proposed community facility precinct for Sippy Downs – by completing a letter of support which can be completed via the link below.

Submitted letters of support will be used to demonstrate community interest to the council.

This link also includes images and information on the proposal.

SDDCA President Matthew Druce said “We cannot urge the community strongly enough to get along to this community meeting and SDDCA AGM to get a true and accurate snapshot of exactly what is happening locally, especially the two presentations on proposed community facilities for Sippy Downs.

Establishment of much needed community facilities for Sippy Downs is welcome news. We are calling on residents to come along and be involved in the progression of these facilities.

Open to each and every member of the community from visitors to residents and business representatives, this evening always presents a fantastic opportunity for locals to stay up to date with what has, is and will be happening locally.

The Sippy Downs Districts Community Association has been supporting and representing the best interests of locals in the Sippy Downs, Tanawha and Palmview area for over 13 plus years with the support of members and the community.
