Murphy's Paddock Petition

Thu 21 Sep 2017

 

I am very mindful that development needs to be appropriate and sustainable, and that our suburbs remain liveable.

I am gravely concerned about the proposed residential development of Murphy's Paddock, in particular about the density, greenspace and infrastructure around this project.

If this is a concern for you too, please sign this petition

Everton Park Post Office

Mon 18 Sep 2017

After over 100 years serving the Everton community, the Everton Park Post Office closed its doors in July. I was frustrated to hear this decision by Australia Post because I know that many people in the community use and rely on it and deserve to have access to these services within the suburb.

I know the local community was disappointed to hear these plans, so I sponsored a petition to Federal Parliament asking for the Post Office to reopen or be relocated within Everton Park, and I received an overwhelming response - almost 1500 signatures!

The petition went before the Petitions Committee in early August and has now been tabled in Federal Parliament. I have also written to Australia Post again. I will keep you updated on any progress.

The Post Office may be closed, but I will do my best to bring it back. Thank you for your support!

Bunyaville facilities

Thu 7 Sep 2017

We are very fortunate in our electorate to have Bunyaville Conservation Park right on our doorstep. With several different bush tracks, picnic tables, barbecues, drinking water and toilets, it's a fantastic location for a family day out or to escape the city buzz. I'm also currently working to have better barbecues installed for people to enjoy.

There are several community groups that operate within Bunyaville, including Friends of Bunyaville, Enoggeroos and Bunyaville Trail Runners and Bunya Belles. Every Saturday morning enthusiastic runners set off from James Drysdale Reserve for the Bunyaville Parkrun. Everyone is welcome! I had a BBQ the other week for these dedicated runners and am working with these groups to ensure each event has defibrillators.

It really is a fantastic location and we are lucky  to have such a gem in our electorate, as well as so many local groups providing opportunities for us to enjoy it.

 


Mander Welcomes Warning Signs

Thu 15 Jun 2017

Tim Mander, State Member for Everton, would like to advise that the Department of Transport and Main Roads will install a high crash site warning sign near the intersection of South Pine Road and Pullen Road, Everton Park.

"This safety improvement work will heighten driver awareness and hopefully reduce collisions," Mr Mander said.

The works are scheduled to commence this week and be completed by the end of June.

The work will be done at night and will include partial lane closures.

 


No funding to fix intersection of Stafford Road and South Pine Road

Wed 14 Jun 2017

Desperately needed funding to fix traffic congestion at the intersection of South Pine and Stafford Roads at Everton Park was missing from this week's State Budget.

The State Member for Everton, Tim Mander, said he was extremely disappointed there is no end in sight to the long and frustrating wait to get through this intersection each day for tens of thousands of commuters.

"Not only are people wasting precious hours of their week sitting in their cars here, but the intersection at South Pine and Stafford Roads is also dangerous."

"I have been expecting the results of skid resistance testing on the right turn movement from Stafford Road into South Pine Road after several minor car accidents on the intersection in the last 12 months. The State Government still has not provided the results of the testing," said Mr Mander.

Mr Mander said he was pleased the government re-announced some operational funding for the Youngcare facility at Albany Creek that was originally committed by the last LNP government in 2014.

Neighbour Day 2017

Tue 11 Apr 2017

Neighbour Day, featuring Madeleine Hicks Real Estate's Easter Egg Hunt, on Sunday 9th April at Teralba Park was a fantastic day!!

We had thousands of families come and join in the fun of picnic day races, inflatable soccer, face painting and a visit from the Easter Bunny.

A massive thank you to the community groups, schools, kindys and local businesses who came out to support and participate in the event.

It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying spending time out in the community. I'm looking forward to an even bigger and better event next year!

 


Support Walk for Youngcare and MS Queensland Albany Creek Apartments

Wed 29 Mar 2017

 

Youngcare at Albany Creek is on track to be the new home for eight  young people with high needs in 2017 to promote lives of choice,  independence and dignity!

The centre is holding an Open Day on 16 May 2017 commencing at 7am. To celebrate the opening of this facility, highlight the challenges for disabled young people and raise funds to purchase a motor vehicle for the residents, I am leading a group of walkers around the district on 16 May 2017 commencing at 8:30am from the Youngcare facility at Albany Creek. I will walk around the district, between three primary schools where the children will help me raise money to support this facility.

Please help support this fantastic facility which will make an invaluable difference to these young people's lives by donating here and liking/sharing this event on Facebook.

Every local business or individual who donates $200 or more can participate in the walk and will receive a  framed certificate acknowledging their contribution, acknowledgement in Buzz Magazine and acknowledgement on the event's Facebook page.
