In 2019/2020 we plan to invest $6.3 million to renew and develop assets and $12.7 million to maintain and operate assets, as well as provide local programmes and initiatives
For information on the investment plan, see section 2.1 (page 23) of the supporting information document for the capital spend and operating spend for Albert Eden Local Board 2019/2020.
What we are doing
A continuing focus for us is protecting the environment through ecological restoration, improving water quality and creating urban forests.
Our reviewed Local Paths (Greenways) Plan identifies several walking and cycling routes for development.
The needs of our growing and diverse communities are considered when we improve parks, ensuring they are easy to access and enjoy.
We'll continue to upgrade our community buildings and promote the use of shared spaces to cater for a range of needs.
We'll also promote local economic development through town centre improvements, business sustainability action plans and migrant business workshops.
What we are proposing
We're not proposing major changes to the existing work programme for 2019/2020 as we continue to deliver the projects identified in our 2017 Local Board Plan.
We will continue the high level of service you expect through providing quality parks and playgrounds, libraries, community and recreation facilities.
Message from the chair
I am pleased to present our local board priorities for the 2019/2020 financial year. We are not proposing major changes to existing budgets or work programmes. We will continue to manage our budgets prudently while delivering good outcomes for the community.
We remain committed to providing the high level of service you expect through quality parks and playgrounds, libraries, community and recreation facilities.
In 2018/2019, your feedback supported projects now underway, including developing management plans to care for our urban streams, and supporting local businesses to implement sustainable practices. We had a very positive response to a cycling and walking connection between St Lukes and Greenlane Station, which is now being investigated.
We have reviewed our Albert-Eden Local Paths (Greenways) Plan and will be developing key routes over the coming years, as budget allows. Making our streets safe and easy to get around using traffic calming measures and signage is also a priority. We will continue to support local businesses through town centre improvements, business sustainability action plans and migrant business workshops.
We will continue the important work of protecting the local environment by funding projects that reduce local waste, improve water quality and create urban forests.
The needs of our diverse communities are being considered as we improve parks, by ensuring they are easy to access and enjoy. We will continue upgrading our community buildings and will promote the use of shared spaces to make better use of existing facilities.
Current and future growth predictions in the local board area mean we will continue to advocate for community and recreational facilities to ensure the requirements of our increasing population are met.
We would like to hear your feedback on all these initiatives, or any other additional thoughts you may have to improve the Albert-Eden Local Board area.
Chair, Albert-Eden Local Board
