Council seeks feedback on Meridan Fields Draft Master Plan
A Draft Master Plan for a new sporting, recreation and community multi-use facility at Meridan Plains is now on display and open to public comment.
Jointly funded by Sport and Recreation Queensland and Caloundra City Council, the project aims to create an attractive, practical recreational and community use precinct, Caloundra City Mayor Don Aldous said.
"The facility is to be built on vacant Council-owned land on Sunset Drive in the fast-growing Meridan Plains suburb, between the new Meridan State College and Pacific Lutheran College and adjacent to existing and future residential developments. Once endorsed by Council, we would expect this to be a staged project with the majority of facilities completed over a 10-year period," Cr Aldous said.
Key features of the Draft Master Plan include:
• Sporting club facilities and a centrally located clubhouse
• Internal roadway and formalised car parking areas
• Pedestrian and cyclist pathways with links to surrounding communities
• Open space areas and parkland with landscaping, tree planting and revegetation areas
• Picnic and barbecue facilities
• Exercise stations, seniors' fitness equipment and Petanque/bocce
• Adventure playground and native habitat display/outdoor classroom
• Fenced dog off-leash area
• Shade covered BMX play/skate facility
The plans are on display until July 21, 2006 at Council's Customer Service Centre, Omrah Avenue, Caloundra, and on the Council website: www.caloundra.qld.gov.au
A display day will be held at Currimundi Market Place, Nicklin Way, on July 1, 2006 from 9am to 1pm.
