Amity Point to host Council NSI update in September

Redland City Council is inviting North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) residents and visitors to drop into Amity Point Hall on Saturday 14 September for updates on a range of Council projects.

Mayor Karen Williams said the North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) Community Open House, from 10am – 12 noon, would be an opportunity for members of the public to learn more about some of Council’s key island priorities.

“North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) is undergoing significant transition and this event is part of our commitment to keep in touch with island residents about Council’s role and ensure they’re informed,” she said.

“The open house is designed for people to drop in, stroll through information stations and speak to our officers.

“Council will have information stations on topics such as water and waste, disaster management, open space planning, Amity Point Shoreline Erosion Management Planning and others.

“I will be attending, along with Division 2 Councillor Peter Mitchell and other senior Council officers, so we can meet and speak with residents.

“Recognising we are only one of many agencies with tenure on the Island, in addition to information on projects and services under Council responsibility, we have also invited other government and community stakeholders and Members of Parliament to participate.”

Cr Mitchell said taking project updates to the island was an important tool in connecting Council and community.

“As the island continues to transition towards the end of mining in late 2019, this is another way of keeping the avenues of communication open,” he said.
