Community spirit is the heart of Division 10

Published:

Community groups and local residents are the big winners in Division 10 following Sunshine Coast Council’s 2020/21 budget with funds being invested in community facilities.

A $1 million upgrade to the Nambour Aquatic Centre, progression of the Eumundi Town Centre Placemaking project, $75,000 to upgrade the Yandina Cricket Club Clubhouse roof and $110,000 to Mt Ninderry Stage II Walking Trail Renewal are among Budget highlights for the division.

Divisional Councillor David Law said council’s $782 million budget included investments in projects to help build a strong and thriving community.

“I’m really pleased to see our community will be able to enjoy a major upgrade to the Nambour Aquatic Centre which will benefit both young and old, from mums and bubs classes to seniors connecting with others during their weekly exercise lessons,” Cr Law said.

“The progression of the Eumundi Placemaking project is crucial because it is a fantastic town and it has an exciting and bright future.

“Road safety is also paramount, with council allocating $1.7 million to upgrade Kiamba Road, Kiamba from a gravel road to a sealed section.”

Councillor Law said he was pleased to see many Division 10 community groups receive a helping hand from council’s budget with funding being allocated towards their facilities, including Nambour Badminton Complex, Nambour Equestrian Centre and Yandina Cricket Club.

“We’re also carrying out a variety of small but valuable works such as upgrading barbecues, seats and signage to important places including Quota Memorial Park, Lions Park, Burnside-Nambour Park, Sundale Park, Kenilworth Park, Whalley Park, Belli Park, Dick Caplick Park and Allan Templeton Park.

“I’m also pleased to see Eumundi and Kulangoor cemeteries will be upgraded which, once complete, will be a welcome sight for families who regularly visit their loved ones.”

Council delivered its $782 million budget on 25 June.
