MATTERS ARISING FROM THE MINUTES

Location of Water Theme Sculpture

The Chairperson advised that the decision to locate the sculpture within the hedge line beside the Post Office was criticised by the Positive Paeroa Group as they considered this location was not a prominent enough position.

It was therefore suggested that a selection of possible sites around the town be looked at to enable a decision to be made on the most appropriate location.

The garden area in front of the ex Information Centre site in Belmont Road was suggested as a site to consider.

In the mean time, the sculpture requires storage in a safe location to prevent potential damage or health and safety issues occurring. It was requested that staff in the meantime ensure the sculpture is relocated to a secure location.

WELCOME SIGNS - PAEROA (CR HARRIS) (619945) (29 KB) Adobe Acrobat PDF document

A report from the Asset Administration Manager was presented seeking the Ward Committee’s consideration to the installation of ‘Welcome to Paeroa’ signage on state highway locations. Photographs showing superimposed signage at the entranceway locations were provided at the meeting.

The members supported the initiative to upgrade the entranceway signs as they agreed the current signs are looking somewhat jaded.

RESOLVED

THAT the report be received; and

THAT subject to approval from NZTA to erect the signs, the Ward Committee accepts this proposal and approve the application for funding of $6,408.00; and

THAT the Ward Committee confirm that the members of the PAP group and Positive Paeroa are to take full responsibility for the funding allocated and for the construction of the welcome signs to the specifications and standards as laid out by NZTA (New Zealand Transport Agency).
