    The Caves Lions Bicentennial Park is set to receive some welcome additions.

    Livingstone Shire Council is undertaking upgrades to the park, including a hard roof shade structure over the existing Skate Park, additional play equipment, concrete pathway, irrigation, and landscaping.

    The project is jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) through a Central Queensland Bushfires Flexible Funding Grant.

    Councillor Glenda Mather, who was involved in the preliminary discussions around the design of the park in conjunction with The Caves and District Lions Club committee, said the key priorities for this project were a result of a series of community consultations.

    “Residents identified the important role a welcoming green space would play for the community, in regards to building social cohesion and strengthening connections,” Cr Mather said.

    “The park will become a central space where community led initiatives can take place at any time of the year.”

    A resident of The Caves for the past 25 years and member of The Caves Playground Committee, Kristine McHugh, said the park upgrades will have a significant impact on the local community.

    “The skate park will now be able to be used all day, even in the middle of summer. This, along with the upgrade to the play equipment, paths and gardens will now make this area a community hub for parents and children to meet and play,” Mrs McHugh said.

    “It will give the community a revitalisation and encourage tourists to stay a little longer in our area. Most importantly, in the event of fires or disasters, it will be a safety zone for all residents. We would like to thank Glenda Mather and Livingstone Shire Council for all of their efforts in supporting the community in this development.”

  • Community identifies top priorities for Council's annual budget

    More investment in roads, economic development, parks and open spaces, sport, and community development projects are just some of the key areas residents would like to see considered in Council’s 2020/21 annual budget.

    Council’s Engagement and Events Team conducted a community survey earlier this year to gauge the community’s thoughts and ideas regarding its priorities for the 2020/21 budget.

    Mayor Andy Ireland said the survey would contribute towards providing a comprehensive scope to assist Council in planning and allocating funding towards capital works and community projects.

    “Council is forecast to invest $34 million towards the renewal of existing assets and construction of new assets for our growing Shire in line with the expectations of the community as captured in the Livingstone Community Plan: Towards 2050,” Cr Ireland said.

    “As a result of the fantastic feedback from this survey, the majority of residents who took part expressed their desire to see more funding allocated towards Council services including rural and urban road networks (gravel sheeting, sealing and resealing), shared pathways (cycle ways, rail trails and footpaths), drainage (floodway construction, kerb and channel, flood mitigation), waste recycling (transfer stations, landfills, education programmes) and wastewater (sewerage, network upgrades and water recycling).

    “Overall the community was clear on what it would like to see in the way of improving our Shire’s services and facilities through enhanced liveability, a thriving community and stronger communication between Council and the community.

    “Livingstone is welcoming, connected, and resilient with a relaxed community spirit, celebrated for its natural beauty, vibrant culture, and thriving economy and Council’s vision is to continue to build on that principle for the betterment of our Shire and its residents.”

    Council is currently undertaking budget deliberations, with the annual budget expected to be adopted in July.

    Councillors to catch-up with residents at Yeppoon Community Markets and Glenlee

    Mayor Andy Ireland will be at the Yeppoon Community Markets next weekend on Saturday, 27 June from 6.30am.

    All Councillors will also visit Glenlee Park on Saturday, 29 August from 1pm to 3pm and residents are invited to drop in for a catch-up.

    “This will be a great opportunity for a catch-up with residents in an informal and friendly atmosphere,” Cr Ireland said.

    “Council values the importance of talking to residents and hearing their ideas, stories or concerns they may have about particular issues in their locality.

    “Councillors also plan to visit other localities across the Shire in coming months.”

    For those who cannot make it but would like to share their suggestions or ideas, Council’s online Resident Reach programme also provides residents with the opportunity to connect with Council.

    Residents can ask questions, share information about their locality and their ideas or tell stories about their local community.
