Cr Karen Murphy has been working throughout the 4207 division and has shot out an update on the doings in the Beenleigh area.

Beenleigh has been getting hit with a lot of construction and while it may be annoying at times to deal with, the improvements to the area will be worth the hardship.

The council is seeking input from residents on the Urban Art Strategy. So, this means getting into action now and having a discussion with the council or Cr Murphy and not waiting till it is built to complain. Have your say and make a difference.

Cr Murphy goes into detail here about what is happing.

The first section of the shade solution is now complete with all discs installed. Today work starts on the rigging for the second section (across the lawn) where discs created by local artist June Hintz will be hung. While works slightly delayed due to recent wet weather, the work will be finished late June. Council will have an event in mid-July so be sure to stay tuned for more details.

Today I met with the project manager and contract supervisor to get an update on the works. At this stage we are running ahead of schedule and we’ve been able to make some variations to the plan with regards to parking and loading zones to help out the businesses.

The new 7 story, $40 million development on York Street is coming along well with completion and fit out on scheduled in August. It is a great catalyst for investment in Beenleigh and has already generated a lot of interest.

Council is seeking your input on our Urban Art Strategy that aims to embrace artistic creativity in public and private spaces to make the city a more enjoyable and meaningful place to live, work and visit. Despite some mistruths being perpetuated by others, Council WILL NOT be painting over the Donald James Waters OAM Tree of Life mural. It’s a wonderful piece of public art that will be protected, not removed. I’ve asked Council officers to investigate how we can protect the artwork for the future.

I’ve also been around and spoken to some of the local business owners today and touch base with them. If I’ve missed you today please get in touch – I’m always happy to have a chat.
