We held a very successful meeting with around 200 people attending. We covered 3 main topics: AT proposals for safety improvements in Mission Bay; noise and fireworks issues in Mission Bay, and the proposed retirement village at John Rymer Place. We also gave updates on the Mission Bay 8 storey development and our plans to convert the old Mission Bay Bowling Club land and buildings into a community asset.
The meeting was lively and occasionally a bit unruly, but that simply confirmed that these are issues that local residents feel strongly about. We are pleased to have been able to provide a forum where information and concerns could be shared.
For anyone who was unable to attend the public meeting on 30 November, here is a link to the presentation.

The Mayoral Debate meeting on 30 September was a great success. It opened with all three of the Orakei Ward Councillor candidates outlining their positions and answering questions on specific issues, and then moved on to the head to head debate between Phil Goff and John Tamihere. All of the candidates spoke well, capturing their positions concisely, and keeping to our time limits.
Around 250 people attended and were entertained and informed by the speakers. The Selwyn College Theatre is a great venue with comfortable seats and excellent viewing, making for a thoroughly successful evening.
