ERNIE ORGAN PARKFraser Coast Regional Council voted 4/7 against community consultation on the removal of the native hibiscus (cottonwood)Obviously the removal of the cottonwood trees will just enhance the serious erosion problems at Torquay, while not even creating a view. It will be an unnecessary taxpayer expense to continuously combat the erosion, remove the cottonwood trees for no reason plus lay and maintain lawn.  There will be added expense to business including the time to clean sand and leaves from their properties and merchandise.This park has its own ambiance and does not require a needless upgrade.  I am sure there are other areas that would like a park on the foreshore or even back from the beach within the community for children as 70% of the Wide Bay is obese I am all for more recreational areas!
