A vibrant community

  • Improving community access to facilities by allocating more than $22 million since 2012 for new or upgraded community facilities.
  • A massive major events program for the community to enjoy and from which local businesses to benefit.
  • Provided on average, $7.5 million in grants each year to community organisations to help deliver improved services, programs and facilities for our residents.
  • Established the Disaster Management Hub – providing our community with real time access to flood maps and council and state controlled road closures during an emergency situation.
  • Ensuring new communities – like Aura (Caloundra South) and Palmview – are provided with the community facilities they will need, without a residual cost to existing ratepayers.
  • Allocating more than $180 million since 2012 to improve and maintain the accessibility and safety of our local road network.
