Want to have your say on the future use of youth spaces in the Cairns Region? We'd love to her your thoughts via our line survey. There are separate surveys for Kenrick Street Park at Gordonvale, Pezzutti Park at Woree and Marline Coast Sports Reserve Smithfield, so you can weigh in on the future of your local space. http://www.cairns.qld.gov.au/council/have-say/open/parkour-pop-up
We're doing some roadworks at Mary Parker Drive, Gamburra Drive and Xavier Herbert Drive at Redlynch this week. The crew's on site from today to do some asphalt overlay and we expect this will continue for the next couple of days. We hope to finish up on Wednesday afternoon, weather permitting. There are traffic controllers on site and road users are asked to observe changed traffic conditions. Sorry for any inconvenience and thanks for your cooperation.
Wind warning downgraded 😊
While we are largely out of the significant weather event, It wouldn't hurt to keep your patio furniture inside for a few more days. Keep watching the Cairns Disaster Coordination Centre page for regular updates.
Cyclone Watch cancelled for Cairns. We send our thoughts to those in TC Debbie's path.
Great turnout this morning for the launch of the new fitness stations at Gamburra Park in Redlynch. Among the equipment officially opened by Cr Linda Cooper is a set of trapeze rings!

Last chance to book in for this one to keep the kiddies entertained on a wet weekend!
All residents are advised to prepare for a possible severe weather event. Information and resources are available on our website (link below). Like the Cairns Disaster Coordination Centre for regular updates across the weekend. http://www.cairns.qld.gov.au/natural-disasters
Cyclone WATCH issued for Cape Tribulation to Proserpine. Please follow Cairns Disaster Coordination Centre for regular updates.
We could be looking at some serious rain over the next few days. With that in mind, the message is a simple one: if it's flooded, forget it! It's simply not worth the risk.
With all the thunder this week, there has been an increase in lost pets coming to our pound in the past few days. Before you leave your furry friend for the day, please make sure they are safe and secure inside your property. Provide a comfortable space for pets to wait out the storms. Leaving something with your scent on it, such as an old shirt, can also help to keep pets calm. To check if you pet is in the pound, see our Lost Pets page on our website: http://www.cairns.qld.gov.au/payments/impounded-pets
It's still too early to talk locations and intensity, but it is timely to review your Household Emergency Plan, check your emergency kit and consider what you might need to do IF a severe weather event directly threatens our region. Follow Cairns Disaster Coordination Centre for further updates.
