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 Sippy Downs ride will be from 8 am to 10 am on Saturday 13 October, departing from Windmill Park, Oxford Close, Sippy Downs.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning 0407116105.
SDDCA AGM – Community Meeting
Wednesday 29th August 2018 Commencing at 7 pm
Chancellor State College Primary Campus Hall, Scholars Drive, Sippy Downs
We have invited a fantastic range of community stakeholders and representatives to speak in order to provide the most informative update possible.
Presentations for the evening will include updates on both Sippy Downs Community Facilities Proposals and progress, Sippy Downs Community Club Proposal, Sippy Downs Drive Upgrades, Sippy Downs Parks Master Plan Results in addition to updates for Division 6 and Buderim electorates from Cr Christian Dickson and Brent Mickelberg MP.
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.
This is a FREE event!
I am proud to announce for the very first time publicly that council have now secured a 1500m2 piece of land in the Sippy Downs Town Centre to work towards delivering a community facility and library at Sippy Downs.
The land is located behind the Coles shopping centre and I’m excited to announce that $50,000 has been secured to start the necessary works to engage with the community to identify your needs. We will also look at the possibilities of carrying out joint ventures and partnerships to deliver a multi-purpose facility to maximise community use.
For those of you who have followed the journey for some time this is a major milestone and a genuine commitment from council to get the ball rolling and moving into something meaningful for locals.
Given the enormity of the project, I expect that engagement with the community would occur this calendar year to inform councils budget process over the coming years. It will also be imperative to seek external grants from the State and Federal Government to bring this dream to reality.
I am so proud to have travelled the journey to this point in time and I thank locals for their support and patience in this exciting process.

When I have further information I will let you know.
