It is that time of the year again where we would like to say thank you for your continuous support for Treeby Community Association. We, at TCA, has worked hard over the past 12 months to help our community to fight for what we want and unite the residents. Together we represent a significant voice and as a group, we make a positive difference. ๐Ÿค

Some members had reached out requesting guidance on their membership renewal. I do apologise if you are finding the joining or renewal process complicated. Please reach out and we would love to help! ๐Ÿ˜„

There are 3 ways to join or renew your TCA membership for 2020-2021 and they are:

  1. Via Membership Account page. This is our recommended method, as it connects you to us in the most efficient way. (I will guide you the process if you need a hand below)
  2. Pass the joining or renewal fee to Lani (TCA President) or Helen (TCA Secretary/Treasurer) face-to-face. Message them on Facebook or through TCA email.
  3. Direct Paypal payment through PayPal.Me/Treebyca. (Please remember to add your name, contact details, street address in the "message" section so we know who you are)

This year we had included, due to popular request, a Family Membership level ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ that is good up to 5 family members. Or if you are happy with just a single membership, you can pick the Annual Membership too! Any contribution will greatly assist the TCA's growth. ๐Ÿ“ˆ

Once again TCA thank you for your support โค๏ธ and would love to welcome you to join our bi-monthly meeting! See you there. ๐Ÿ‘‹

This is a quick update to inform the resident that part of Solomon Road parallel to Calleya Estate had been opened which allowed residents to come into the estate via Greensand Promanade (new entry) and Dollier Street (existing entry). See map above for the green coloured line.

However, it also appears that they had temporarily closed the minor stretch of Solomon Road between Dollier Street and Cutler Road โš ๏ธ. See map above for the red coloured line. Making it into a 1-lane street, causing unnecessary jams during normal hours.

TCA has not received any information regarding this closure and still waiting to hear back from the council. We do wish that this closure is only temporary and fast. Will post another update as we know more!

So please plan your routes carefully.

If you wish to go Kwinana Freeway or Northbound, please detour using Jandakot Road and Berrigan Drive. If you are heading Southbound, going via Clementine Boulevard is the less jam option at the moment.

Take care and drive safe ๐Ÿš—!

Opal Aged Care - Treeby Parklands - Opening Late 2020

Stockland and TCA have been receiving questions regarding the construction opposite to the dog park on Abelia Road.

This is the new Opal Aged Care facility.

Opal Aged Careโ€™s new home, Treeby Parklands Care Community, is progressing well with construction expected to reach completion in September 2020. Opal Aged Care offers high-quality clinical care, social and recreational programs, and community connections in a friendly and inviting atmosphere for residents and their families. The Opal care home will also include a cafรฉ and physio rehab clinic which will be open to the wider Calleya/Treeby Community.

Please contact Rita Gatenby for more information on PH 0429 954 886 or rita.gatenby@opalagedcare.com.au

Visit Opal Aged Care Specialist website.

Today Treeby Community Association executive team had a bi-monthly meeting in our community garden. Many topics are on the table for discussion, and there is one that I would like to share with all of you (residents of Treeby) here.

As a few of you probably read on our WhatsApp group or our Treeby Crime Watch FB group that there have been a few thefts around the area, as well as 4WD intrusion near Ghostgum roundabout. CoSafe and Police were informed of these activities and subsequently, they are logged.

In the last Neighbourhood Watch meeting the statistics for April 2020 are released and here is Treeby.

As you can see there is a jump between the incidents in February 2020 and April 2020. This is due to multiple factors such as COVID-19 lockdown, unemployment, and being a new construction area are easy targets.

Regardless of the result, I have to applause our community for staying vigilant and keeping eyes around our estate. There are many instances where our community came together and deter suspicious activities. By working together we can make our estate safer for everyone!

Thank you all. We hope the number will drop back down in our next meeting.

We urge you to report any incidents or suspicious activities to the following organisations. Just remember that CrimeStoppers is an intelligence database that sends information out to relevant departments to action. When calling the police or CrimeStoppers, call CoSafe as well as often they are closer to the incident than the police.

000 (Emergency) ๐Ÿ†˜

  • Emergencies that are life-threatening
  • For a crime that is being committed or has just been committed (includes fire and medical emergencies).

131444 (Police) ๐Ÿ‘ฎ

  • Non-urgent situations that require police attendance
  • E.g. car theft, anti-social behaviour (ASB), property related incidents, burglary
  • For crimes that have occurred.

1300 333 000 (CrimeStoppers) ๐Ÿš“

  • Non-urgent situations where immediate attendance is not required
  • E.g. criminal activity or suspicious behaviour
  • You can remain anonymous (as you are not reporting to the police directly)
  • Information can be current or from the past.

1300 26 72 33 (CoSafe) ๐Ÿš”

  • Non-urgent situations where immediate police attendance is not required
  • E.g. ASB, vandalism, graffiti, suspicious behaviour (this will be reported to CrimeStoppers), noise complaints
  • CoSafe responds to calls within 15 minutes.

Please help us to keep Treeby safe. No matter how trivial you think your information is, it might be the missing link for the police. ๐Ÿšจ

Lastly, if you are interested in comparing our suburb with the rest of City of Cockburn, you can find the NHW - Monthly CoSafe Report - April 2020 here.

 

 

The City has been working with a Community Reference Group and Architect to complete a draft design for a new Community and Sports Centre in Treeby. The purpose of this facility is to serve the local community and sporting groups, given their growing numbers and needs.

The draft design for this new Community and Sports Centre was developed based on community feedback from early 2019, when we asked our residents what kind of spaces and activities were most important to them. With a construction budget of approximately $5.5 million, the draft design includes elements such as an activity room, "wet" arts and crafts space, a function room, external play area and more.

THANK YOU โค๏ธ

Thank you to all for adhering to the social distancing practices in the last few weeks. A huge thanks to members in our community that are in the front line protecting us all ๐Ÿ‘. Also, a big thanks to our residents who offered up their time to help those in need. We had witnessed many positive interactions on our Facebook and WhatsApp group. It really shows that we are stronger together as a community ๐Ÿ’ช.

It is a time for strength, humanity and kindness. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿค

We are still FAR from over, despite today's news of easing coronavirus restrictions in WA from our Premier Mark McGowan. McGowan has announced a "cautious relaxation" of some COVID restrictions in WA, including allowing indoor and outdoor non-work gatherings of up to 10 people. However, please keep continuing to follow the advice from the Australia Department of Health and WA Department of Health. Take care and reach out if you need help!

 

Have you seen Carl?

This week, our Treeby Gardening Committee had been working on a fun secret project. We would like to introduce Carl, our Community Garden Scarecrow, he will be a permanent resident there while guarding ours produces. ๐Ÿ˜Š 

Feel free to drop by and say hi to Carl! ๐Ÿ‘‹

 

Nextdoor report!

A while back we introduced Nextdoor in our TCA Facebook group. The member has been slowly increasing over the past 6 months. Just today we hit 237 members in 189 households. That is 15% of Calleya!! That is amazing.

I know this may be just 'another social platform' for some, but the great thing about Nextdoor is that anything shared in this neighbourhood will only be read by the residents in Treeby. Unlike Facebook groups where it is hard to control who joins the group.

So, if you are interested to join Nextdoor use this link. ๐Ÿ˜„

15% of Calleyans are on Nextdoor!

If you see trash along your road or in your neighborhood, please take the time to pick it up and throw it away ๐Ÿšฎ.  If you are at the park, please use the public bins for your trash, cigarette butts, and finished cans/bottles.

Please be considerate of others who also might be walking where you have walked by disposing of your dog waste๐Ÿ’ฉ.  Doggie bags are available in the yellow tubes located throughout the estate. If the doggie bags run out, please report it to Cockburn council customer@cockburn.wa.gov.au.

If every person just took a few minutes each week to dispose of trash, we could easily keep our community beautiful โœจ!  Thank you for your time and contribution! ๐Ÿ˜

More information

There is an update from City of Cockburn regarding the installation of sports floodlighting over the coming months at our Treeby Reserve (Oval). A formal letter should be making rounds in our estate. You can also read about it here!

The City of Cockburn with the support of the Federal Governments (Sport Australia) Community Sport Infrastructure Program is scheduled to install four new sports floodlighting towers over the period of March to June 2020 on Treeby Reserve, corner of Clementine Blvd and Sapphire Dve, Treeby.

On the next page is a map outlining where the floodlighting towers will be located and some Frequently Asked Questions.

The sports floodlighting will use LED lights and will allow both sporting clubs and the wider community to use the reserve at night.

Notably, the installation will include a community light that enables low level lighting at night when the reserve is not being used by a sporting club. This light will enable basic leisure activities to occur (walking or running) and will discourage anti-social behaviour.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why has Treeby Reserve been chosen for floodlighting?
    The City of Cockburn is committed to providing public open spaces that are well utilised. Treeby Reserve is currently the only active sporting reserve in the suburb of Treeby. It provides a good location for local sport and recreation activities and was originally set aside for recreational purposes as part of the planning process for Treeby.
    The park is currently under the management of the developer Stockland; however this is scheduled to come across to the City in 2021. Once the formal management of the reserve is transferred to the City, the City will have the ability to allocate usage to sporting clubs for use.
  2. What type of sporting activities could be undertaken?
    The lighting layout has been configured to accommodate two rectangular pitches (soccer, rugby) as well as an Australian Rules Football oval. Lighting is to local community competition match standard.
  3. Which sporting clubs will use the reserve?
    At the Ordinary Council Meeting in June 2019, the Fremantle Roosters Rugby League Club was awarded winter tenancy (April to September) to Treeby Reserve following an open expression of interest process. At this time, no summer sporting clubs have expressed an interest.
  4.  Will I still be able to use the park for informal recreation activities (such as walking, jogging, dog walking)?
    Yes, although the park will be available for hire by organised sporting groups, the park is still available for general use of the community at other times. In any case, informal recreation activities could be still undertaken around the park and the barbecue, picnic shelter and playground can be used by the community at all times.
  5. What does the sportsโ€™ floodlighting include?
    Sports floodlighting will enable greater sporting opportunities at night to be undertaken in a safe manner. The proposed infrastructure includes four 34m towers with LED lights. The overall brightness can be switched from 50 to 100 lux to enable both training and local level competition in line with Australian Standard AS2560.2.3.
    The floodlight pole locations and design has taken into consideration the control of obtrusive light to nearby amenities and residential properties as per Australian Standard AS4282. In any situation, floodlighting would only be operating in the park between 5.30pm to 9pm (Mon to Thurs) and 10pm (Fri and Sat). Sporting clubs using the lights are required to pay for running costs.
  6. When will works occur?
    Works are scheduled for March and April 2020 and from 7am โ€“ 5pm Mon to Fri. Some Saturday work may be required. Works will occur periodically, however the community will still have access to the reserve and amenities.

After reading through the Frequently Asked Questions, should you require further information staff please contact the undersigned on 9411 3444 or customer@cockburn.wa.gov.au.
