PRESIDENT’S REPORT
 A copy of the report was distributed and Geoff Goode summarised the main items. 

During discussion the following items were raised: 

Cycle Paths: 

Councillors L.Bottomley/J. Moller expressed, the following views: 

  • It is not realistic at present to reduce the width of Beach Road.
  • S. C. C. has a policy to locate cycle paths on the road reserve.
  • It is proving difficult to keep the trucks off Beach Road.
  • In the next 3-5 years the cycle path is only recreational.
  • S.C.C. is considering adding a treed edge to Beach Road.
Public opinions are requested. 

Amalgamation of Municipalities 

Councillor L. Bottomley considers that S.C.C. is potentially under threat to amalgamate with Brighton/Mordialloc. 

Moved that B.C.S. committee examine amalgamation and perhaps even oppose it. (L. Bottomley/J. Stewart) Carried without dissent. 

Wind Surfing 

Councillor John Moller would like to see Watkins Bay used only for swimming. 

Many agreed that the ‘Tea House’ beach was ideal for young children and wind surfing was a problem. It was suggested that wind surfing be restricted to B.Y.C. Beach. 

Moved that the B.C.S. committee monitor wind surfing. (Tina Owens/Audrey Todd) Accepted.

Max Zellman: Department of Conservation, Forests and Lands were building up an advertising campaign to make people aware of these regulations, and they are being enforced by Fisheries & Wildlife Department.
