Maroochydore City Centre Opening – Stage 1
A world of possibilities unfolds as Maroochydore City Centre site opens
When Mark Jamieson declared the site of the new Maroochydore City Centre open to the community, he was doing more than just cutting a ribbon.
The Sunshine Coast Mayor opened a whole new world of possibilities to the thousands of residents who attended People’s Day (August 10).
The Maroochydore City Centre site will be home to a 21st century smart city where environmental sensors will monitor temperature, pollution or pollen levels and send alerts when changes are detected – making the city more liveable for residents and visitors.
Smart irrigation systems which use a combination of weather station, associated sensors and flow metres will also be deployed across the site to help maintain public parkland and reduce weed growth while minimising water usage and costs.
Official opening of the Maroochydore City Centre was well attended and our community was impressed with our progress.
This is Australia’s biggest greenfield city centre and also the most digitally advance.
I thank my fellow Councillors for their commitment and dedication to making this project a reality.
Buildings will now commence coming out of the ground.
