WAIKOUAITI COAST COMMUNITY BOARD

by Gerard Collings, Chairperson


Weather has delayed the completion of the Harvey Street foot path, which will now provide a safe walkway between the township and the Waitati School.  We are advised that the Harvey Street water main renewal is now complete.  The tender price for the work was $258,786.54 (including $25,000 contingency); the final contract price was $232,000.  Tenders for the extension of the Blueskin Library closed in late August; commencement of the works will be dependent on the acceptability of the tenders.


The Dunedin City Council has confirmed the allocation of the Waikouaiti Coast Community Board's discretionary fund for the 2012/13 financial year.  Funding application forms are available through DCC's website or our Governance Support Officer (details below).


At a recent meeting with NZ Transport Agency representatives they confirmed they are considering some vegetation clearance at the Waitati SH1 corner.  The purpose of the clearance is to improve visibility on the corner especially in the vicinity of the store, final details will be confirmed at the board's September meeting which the NZTA representatives intend to attend.  NZTA are also considering a signage request from the DCC relating to the Coastal Scenic Route signage for SH1 at Karitane, Evansdale, and Waitati turnoffs.  The placement of signage is critical to the long-term promotion of the scenic route.

DCC's draft Dunedin Social Wellbeing Strategy is currently out for consultation; submissions close 21 September.  Copies of the draft strategy and other  DCC documents out for consultation are available from the council and through council's website http://www.dunedin.govt.nz/council-online/currently-consulting-on

 

The Waikouaiti Coast Community Board's next meeting is at 5.30pm, 26 September 2012, at the East Otago Events Centre, Waikouaiti.  Members of the public are welcome to speak at the board's public forum, however those wishing to do so need to advise Wendy Collard, our Governance Support Officer (phone 474 3374), before 12 noon on the day prior to the meeting.  Remember you can view the board's meeting agendas, reports and minutes at either the Waikouaiti or Blueskin libraries or through the DCC's website at http://www.dunedin.govt.nz/your-council/council-minutes

Members of the board are only too happy to hear (by phone or email) from members of the community about any issues within our area.
