5 DECEMBER - FESTIVE SEASON BOOST FOR VILLAGE AND MOUNTAIN VIBRANCY
Town vibrancy projects planned for Tamborine Mountain and Tamborine Village have received a festive season boost from the State Government. Applications for co-funding assistance to construct the new Gallery Walk Community Park and deliver improvements to the Tamborine Memorial Hall precinct have been successful.
2 DECEMBER - STRONG RECEPTION FOR MOBILE PHONE BLACK SPOT BOOST
Planned improvements to mobile phone reception for areas surrounding Lamington National Park Road have been welcomed by Mayor Greg Christensen. A new mobile phone tower for the popular tourist route is among 76 new or upgraded base stations planned for Queensland under the latest round of the Commonwealth Mobile Black Spot program.
1 DECEMBER - HOLE-IN-ONE FOR GOLF CLUB'S SWING AT FUNDING
Seed funding provided through Council's annual Sport and Recreation Grants program has helped Tamborine Mountain Golf Club secure almost $23,000 in additional assistance from the State Government. Tamborine Mountain Golf Club was one of nine Scenic Rim sporting organisations to have a win in the latest funding rounds of the Get Playing and Get Going programs.
25 NOVEMBER - FUNDING HURDLE IS NO STUMBLING BLOCK TO VIBRANCY PLANS
Council remains committed to a program of community revitalisation and renewal across Scenic Rim's towns and villages. Although Council's short-listed applications for vibrancy projects in Beaudesert, Boonah and Tamborine Mountain were not funded in the current round of the State's Building Our Regions program it was not a significant hurdle for the long-term Vibrant and Active Towns and Villages initiative.
29 NOVEMBER - FUNDING TO IMPROVE DISASTER RESILIENCE IN SCENIC RIM
Scenic Rim will be able to build up its resilience to natural disasters from floods to bushfires after being granted $248,337 in Commonwealth-State joint funding.
