November Council Meeting: The November meeting of council is on Wednesday, November 27 at the Bungendore Council Chambers. Items on the agenda include the community consultation report on the Braidwood skate park concept and location, consideration of tenders for refurbishment of Braidwood Pool and Rusten House, a report on the community consultation about the Bungendore Car Park, the Queanbeyan CBD Spatial Master Plan and more. The full agenda is available on council's website. Council will hold one meeting in December, which will be an ordinary meeting of council on December 18.
Visitors to QPRC: We all know that Queanbeyan-Palerang is a beautiful place to live and visit and it seems that more tourists than ever before are finding this out too. Visitor numbers from the 2018/19 financial year have been finalised by Tourism Research Australia. Over this past financial year, domestic overnight visitation to Queanbeyan-Palerang was the highest since records began in 1998 and domestic day visits was the highest since 2011.
Queanbeyan Civic and Cultural Precinct: Comments are closing soon on the business case and concept designs for the Queanbeyan Civic and Cultural Precinct. The precinct will link the council administration building to The Q, the Bicentennial Hall and a public domain space and include a fully accessible library on the mezzanine level. Take a look at the plans and the business case and have your say at yourvoice.qprc.nsw.gov.au.
Lascelles Street improvements: We will be upgrading Lascelles Street in Braidwood. The improvements include formalising parking to include 35 spaces with two disabled spots in front of the IGA, replacing existing trees, extending the kerb and median to allow easier crossing of the road, rehabilitating the road surface between Wallace and Ryrie Streets, new footpaths, kerb and guttering and improved driveways to allow better drainage and a new drainage pipe on Wallace Street to connect with existing stormwater. We are after the community's feedback on the proposed location of the trees, the species of trees and any treatments in the pedestrian islands. Go to yourvoice.qprc.nsw.gov.au.
