Lions Park Toilets Q&A

Question

Toilets are desperately needed in Lions Park where large numbers of users have no facilities. This should be one of the priorities on Tamborine Mountain.

Answer

Thank you for your email.

This request for a toilet facility at Lions Park is already on the list for Council.

It is one of many such requests across the region (I am aware of at least 5 for toilet facilities alone). Unfortunately, there will always be a longer list than can be accommodated within budgets in any year.

Every year, Councilors have the opportunity through the budget process to put the case for bringing specific projects forward in the program of work. These requests are then assessed collectively along with all other requests, to reach a collective decision. I have always encouraged Councilors to follow this opportunity.

You will also be aware that for this current budget, we recommenced “Town Hall” style community discussions during the formation of the budget, to gather community ideas and input.

I am delighted with this as I had commenced this process in the prior term but it did not have adequate engagement from the community and Councilors of that term thought we could defer the process to a future stage.

I encourage you to remain a passionate advocate for this proposal with your local Councilor as well. 

I have been a passionate champion of improving the livability of our community infrastructure with significant upgrades during my time as Mayor. This is something I am committed to continue.
