JRA does not endorse any particular party or candidate in accordance with our non-alliance policy. We are only providing information provided in response to our member's concerns and questions. JRA Executive hopes this additional information is helpful in making a very personal decision.
Unfortunately time restraints upon some of the Mt Ommaney Candidates led to the delay in presenting this information.

Energy Conservation Community Program

Submitted by JRA-Site Admin on Wed, 19/10/2011 - 4:48pm

JRA Executive is corresponding with Energex on ways that we can assist members with reducing their electricity bills.

JRA’S last promotion on the installation of home solar electricity generation, has delivered remarkable cost savings for those that proceeded with the installation.  A few residents have reported that they paid nothing for their last (winter) electricity bill and one resident received a $50 rebate. 

NB: JRA encourages residents to take into account all costs (e.g. installation, maintenance, upgrades, etc) when making their decisions re any alternative energy.  It is important to examine all aspects when calculating potential savings.  Ultimately, you are responsible for your own decisions and results. 


JRA Discussion agenda topics with Cr. Bourke

Sirocco Intersection Signalised Traffic Lights

$15,000 budgeted for traffic study – all existing lights along Dandenong road to be put on same smart system and coordinated.
JRA expressed concerns that if a full set of lights were installed at the Sirocco/Central/Dandenong intersection that they might encourage the use on Galleon Street as an alternative route to Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre. JRA also expressed concerns that if entry and exit intervals at the Kentucky lights were reduced, it could encourage more motorists to use the Andaman Street access point.

Message from JRA President.

Jamboree Residents Association Inc. members made a decision to join BRU for the following reasons:


  • JRA would retain its own autonomy on issues affecting Jamboree Heights, but could draw on the experiences and expertise from other resident associations.JRA is not "anti-development". However, JRA was keen to participate in the management of growth in Brisbane to ensure there is no detrimental impact on our living standards or sense of community.
