Our proposed priorities for 2020/2021
We propose, subject to consultation, to prioritise our natural environment working with the community, including Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei to improve water quality in Ōkahu Bay and to develop an integrated plan for Pourewa Valley.
We will keep vigorously advocating for transport initiatives, including the Gowing Drive linkage to the Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive Shared Path, and wider safety improvements.
Community and park facility upgrades will continue, along with our commitment to ensuring our heritage assets are protected.
We will support regional events, and seek funding for projects to support these locally, such as America's Cup 2021.
We're not proposing major changes to the existing work programme for 2020/2021 as we continue to deliver the projects identified in our local board plan.
Proposed change to Business Improvement District
The Glen Innes Business Association is proposing to expand the boundary of the Business Improvement District (BID) across the boundary into the Ōrākei Local Board area.
If the boundary expansion is successful the Glen Innes BID programme will represent about 190 business ratepayers and owners, with a proposed BID targeted rate of $250,000 from 1 July 2020.
