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.
Please see the attached memo/images to fully understand the situation. You can view them by clicking each one individually.
When I have further information I will let you know.
Christian is the Division 6 Councillor for the Sunshine Coast Council.
Christian was elected at the age of 19 years old in October 2006. In 2008 Christian was re-elected as the local councillor for Division 6 as part of the amalgamated Sunshine Coast Regional Council.
In the 2012 local election Christian was elected unopposed, something that was unexpected and very humbling.
Having been re-elected in 2016 he feels that he has a strong mandate to work hard for the community whilst continuing to deliver important projects in Division 6.
Christian feels “blessed” having the opportunity to live on the Sunshine Coast and having the opportunity to work with local resident's to improve lived experiences in our region.
