Andy suggested a bit of gardening is needed at 24 Georgina St. Its a piece of council land on a corner. Bob will take a look
Beating the Bounds was attended by 4 Board members and a Councilor. We walked the 14km local board boundary and looked at many walking problems.
Accessible Street Package. This is not a good thing as it introduces footpath cycling and a speed limit of 15kph. This is unenforceable. All vehicles will crowd the curb cuts. Puts people off walking and its the trips not taken that should be counted. We will make a submission as ask to talk to it. It will be in GEs name.
Berm parking. Heidi is talking to Grant soon. We still support this action even if it is Proposal 8 of the Accessible Street Package
Bob reported a footpath invasion around 67 Gt Nth Rd as loading ramps had been built on the footpath. A call to AC got that fix. Well done Bob.
Annabels cafe in Three Lamps are still using public seating as a table.

An AGM was held. The accounts were presented and accepted by the meeting. Paula asked about the $1000 to be spent on a legal opinion on Berm Parking and was happy it will happen in the new financial year.

Bike Auckland’s newsletter has a photo of a bike a locked onto a handrail. We have asked them to point out the error of their ways. Barbara Cuthbert is being talked to.
AT berm parking. Ak Transport have a legal opinion that they cannot stop people parking on the berm. This is not the case in other place in NZ so we think they have a bad legal opinion. The meeting agree to spend up to $1000 on getting another legal opinion that negates the AT position.
The Lime e-scooter are being updated with a new version that is faster and heavier. We stil think they should not be used on the footpath.
We spoke about the Ak Transport speed reduction programme. The Shane Ellison (CEO AT) meeting. Lime scooter, we need to put out a statement. The Ponsonby old Post Office restaurant is using public seating for their out door tables. This is not on and Andy will chat with Max Wilde.
Andy presented the accounts for last year. We spent $112 on hall hire, $200 on website and LSA subs, $860 on the Walk to Work free breakfast and $500 on the Beat the Traffic audit. We had income of $1500 for the Beat the Traffic audit. Total for the year a loss of $273. We have $4005 in the bank. Andy we reappointed as coordinator for the coming year. Graeme as the other bank signatory.
Kathryn King canceled our meeting the day before it so we will request another.
Lime scooter had hit the streets and are using footpaths, cycleway and road.
We had an update on 354 Ponsonby rd Civic Space.
There are Ak Transport funds available to Local Boards for safety projects.
