 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 10 March 2021

 Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

Cr Gaedtke noted that the Clean Up Australia event last weekend was wonderful and it was a great effort from everyone. Savages Crossing, Jensen’s Swamp, Twin Bridges were all cleaned up by volunteers. Well done to everyone.

Cr Gaedtke noted that she has received a great response to our new Red Benches.

Absolutely brilliant news delivered to us all by the announcement of “Brisbane 2032 named “preferred host” for Games”.  The International Olympic Committee named Brisbane as the preferred host for the 2032 Olympics and Paralympic games.  The announcement came days before the SEQ Mayors mark six years since initiating the push to host the games.  As part of its new fair and open process, the international Olympic Committee elevated the Brisbane 2032 proposal to the Targeted Dialogue phase which earmarks the region as its preferred host.  It also kickstarts a more detailed evaluation of the south-east’s proposal for 2032.  What a wonderful opportunity to showcase our beautiful region as an affordable and liveable region, and one that has sound investment and business opportunities.  The SEQ Mayors are committed to securing lasting legacies for the region and will be working hard to develop a proposal that, through design, ensures our cities do not end up with white elephants.

It is great to see local community groups are once again meeting, and are confident to do so with COVID compliance.
