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.

A general meeting was then held

Eleanor suggests there needs to be bollards at drives on Greys Ave to stop cars using the footpath as a road. Andy will talk with Audrey and the Local Board.
Franklin rd, Hamish Keith has asked for no eScooters on footpaths on Christmas month. Andy to tell Hamish about our Footpaths for Feet petition.
Walk AUckland will run Beating the Bounds in Feb for the Waitemata LB
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.
Finding myself alone, I phoned Mike Mellor who has been to meetings in Wellington representing Living Streets. He also went to the NLTP launch, in Wellington as I in Auckland, where we meet with NZTA board members Micheal Stianssy, Dame Fran Wilde and managers Fergus Gammie, Brett Glideon and Steve Mutton. We both pointed out that the Walking and Cycling programme contains only shared paths. The solution is for both the Local Government and NZTA to put projects into the programme to gain the FAR. LSA will encourage this.
