JIMNA FIRE TOWER STATE FOREST USE GREAT DEBATE SPECIAL AND IMPORTANT NOTICE

TOGETHER WE HAVE SAVED THE JIMNA FIRE TOWER FROM DEMOLITION BUT IT’S PRESERVATION IS BY NO MEANS ASSURED. TO PRESERVE THE TOWER FOR POSTERITY IT MUST BE REDEVELOPED INTO A SELF FUNDED TOURIST ATTRACTION / DESTINATION.

FOR THAT TO HAPPEN THE QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO CHANGE OR CLARIFY FUTURE FOREST USE POLICIES WHICH HAVE BEEN DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEMOLITION THREAT TO THE JIMNA FIRE TOWER.

THE PUBLIC USE OF STATE CONTROLLED LAND NEEDS TO BE OPENLY MANAGED NOT DECEITFULLY DISCOURAGED. TOURISM INFRASTRUCTURE SHOULD BE IMPROVED NOT REMOVED. 

FLORA AND FAUNA NEEDS TO BE PROTECTED BUT NOT BY THE CURRENT PRACTICE OF NEGLECTING AND LOCKING UP STATE FORESTS. ACCESS ROADS ARE VITAL FOR CONTROL OF DESTRUCTIVE WILD FIRES.

ALL STAKEHOLDERS IN THE FUTURE COMMERCIAL AND PUBLIC USE OF QUEENSLAND STATE FORESTS AND NATIONAL PARKS ARE REQUESTED TO REGISTER THEIR INTEREST IN THIS IMPORTANT DEBATE (SEE BELOW).

THIS IS A STATE GOVERNMENT POLITICAL PROBLEM WHICH REQUIRES A STATE GOVERNMENT POLITICAL SOLUTION.

 If you, your group, or your business has an interest in the future “COMMERCIAL or PUBLIC USE OF JIMNA STATE FOREST or CONONDALE NATIONAL PARK” in South East Queensland … whether it be …”INDIGENOUS CONNECTION”… or    “CONSERVATION AND WILD FIRE CONTROL”  .. like…land care ….. weed and pest control ….. flora and fauna protection……water management etc….or…”NATURE BASED RECREATION”  like…bird watching ….bush walking ….camping…orienteering… etc….or….”FOREST ACTIVITIES”  like ….mountain biking…. horse riding…….off-roading…dirt biking…car rallying….hunting….fossicking…etc….or….

JFTAG INTENDS TO MOBILISE STAKEHOLDERS AND CREATE A FORUM TO DEBATE THIS ISSUE DURING THE LEAD UP TO THE FORTHCOMING QUEENSLAND STATE ELECTION ….. OR TO STRENGTHEN OUR LOBBYING CAPACITY WITH OUR NEWLY ELECTED QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT….
