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.”

Campaign to upgrade Scholars Drive ramps up

Mickelberg’s campaign to upgrade Scholars Drive ramps up: Premier needs to stump up

Yesterday in State Parliament Member for Buderim Brent Mickelberg again called on the Premier to put her money where her mouth is and fund Scholars Drive.

Mr Mickelberg tabled a petition to the Labor State Government and called on Premier Palaszczuk to: work with the Sippy Downs and Chancellor State College community; stump up the cash to fix Scholars Drive congestion; and prevent the unthinkable from happening before it is too late.

“As I reminded her yesterday, the Premier said on the 15th of May this year: ‘I always say that government works best when all levels of government work together.’ I couldn’t agree more Premier,” Mr Mickelberg said.

“Last week I stood beside Sunshine Coast Councillor Christian Dickson when he announced Council’s $200,000 investment to upgrade Scholars Drive and now I call on Premier Palaszczuk to step up.

“I urge the Premier to prove she meant what she said and work with the Sunshine Coast Council to fix the problem that is Scholars Drive and release the Sippy Downs community from their daily nightmare.

“It was a Labor Government that built a large school on a dead-end street and it’s time Premier Palaszczuk stumped up the money to fix the congestion caused by Labor’s own poor planning decisions.

“This is a great opportunity for Premier Palaszczuk to show the people of Sippy Downs that politics can be put aside when the safety of our kids is at stake. Scholars Drive is a disaster waiting to happen and Sippy Downs residents deserve better,”. Mr Mickelberg said.

“I will not stop fighting until Labor accept their part of this mess and fix Scholars Drive. The LNP committed $1 million dollars to a solution if elected to Government so why can’t Labor?

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.
