A great initiative from Council to trial fire pit use this winter. Let’s hope everyone follows these guidelines and this can become a permanent change. For those in favour please sign the petition that closes June 20... www.epetitions.brisbane.qld.gov.au/petition/view/pid/868 #fireupbrisbane 🔥

Good!

🐝 The Crosby Road Bushcare Group is back with a working bee on this Saturday, 30 May from 8am - 10am meeting at the Crosby Road stairs.🐝

The personal safety of Brisbane residents and visitors is Brisbane City Council’s top priority and Council is working closely with Queensland Health and the Australian Government and is guided by these agencies on all matters of public health. Therefore, as guided by the Queensland Government’s Roadmap to Easing Restrictions, Council has recommenced community bushland restoration activities including Habitat Brisbane volunteers and Catchment Group bushcare sites on Council land.

· Hygiene and social distancing must be practised during working bee – we want you to stay safe and be a model for the Brisbane community.
· Starting 16 May, Working Bee groups have been limited to a maximum of 10 people.
· All volunteers must sign-in to the Working Bee Record Form - these must be made available to your HBO at short notice if requested.
· If volunteers socialise before or after working bee, food must not be shared; volunteers must stay at least 1.5m apart Tools must not be shared (see attached Guide for more information about tool management).

Please join the groups' Facebook page 'Crosby Road Bushcare - Brisbane Habitat Group' for up-to-date information about changes due to weather conditions.

🏉 Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner has announced that more than 150 eligible community sports clubs across Brisbane will be given a one-off $5000 water payment rebate.
⚽️ Council has reached out to more than 350 community organisations that lease Council facilities to understand their needs during this crisis. The feedback from clubs was that 80 per cent of them had no revenue source and that 78% needed support for utilities payments.💦
🏑 Local sporting clubs are the life blood of community participation and play a valuable role in building resilient, connected, healthy and vibrant communities. The $1 million plan will help struggling clubs cover the cost of maintaining their grounds while closed due to coronavirus.
🏏 We want to see these clubs welcome people back to well-watered fields and ready for use 😃
Now it would be great if the State Government also stepped-up to assist with their Bulk Water and Electricity charges that are hitting clubs hard.

As part of the Better Communities app launch, the LGAQ has a winning way to harness the restless energies of young people during the coronavirus disruption by offering two $2,500 prizes: one for primary school children and one for high school children and young people to build their dream town.

The competition will run until the end of Term 2 – 5 pm Friday, June 26 – with the winners to be announced the following month. The app has been designed to challenge the player’s ability to juggle the complex decisions faced by councils. It asks users to build their ideal community, define policy priorities, and make difficult decisions on realistic scenarios including land development, budgeting, emergency services, pollution, education, and more.

Entry is only via the Better Communities app. An updated version incorporating the competition entry portal is available (free) from Android and Apple stores. All information on the competition, including its terms and conditions, can be found in the app.

Good Luck!

You know all those bike rides and family walks you’ve been doing during isolation – don’t stop now! Keep the momentum going by riding, scooting or walking to school. If you haven’t actively travelled to school before, now is the perfect time to practise travelling the route. The roads are quieter and the cooler autumn weather makes outdoor exercise much more enjoyable. If you choose to drive, avoid congested drop off/pick up points and help maintain a 1.5m social distance by taking part in a park and stride, where you can park the car a couple streets away from the school and walk the rest of the way. An active school commute is a great way to reconnect with your community (from a safe distance of course!) after so much time spent indoors.

Safety tip for parents of these kids on bikes, and other new riders. Beware/avoid the deadly door zone of parked cars (about 1m). Sadly Cr David didn't deliver a safe bikeway north of Price St as parked cars were a higher priority than providing a safe separated bikeway space for people on bikes. If he now values rider safety and the benefits of cycling, this safety warning will be left here.

...unless you plan on traveling through Eagle Junction & Wooloowin where this very councillor opposed safer bike lane infrastructure (that would benefit thousands) in favour of retaining storage space for private vehicles (to continue the ratepayer funded benefit for a few dozen people).

Is it still a win for your/our local community after you cheered that the bikeway north of price street was scrapped???

How are the roads going to be quieter as everyone returns to work avoiding public transport where possible, and Brisbane not adding additional temp safe active transports routes like we've seen both in Australia and overseas?

When I drove past this morning it looks like the neighbouring dog park is still closed. Is that the case?
