Requests for Financial Assistance [CDV-30-100]


Waihi Cherry Blossom Festival Society Inc. [1096220] (40KB) (40 KB) Adobe Acrobat PDF document

The organiser for the society has written requesting financial assistance to implement Stage 1 of the Flowering Cherry Tree programme.

The estimated cost to purchase 60 trees for planting both sides of Seddon Street from the Information Centre, east to the cul-de-sac and Gilmore Street is $2,100. The members were invited for their opinions on this location.

The members suggested that staff consider more options on where to plant the trees. One suggestion was to create a tree lined path from the Hauraki Rail Trail terminus to the Town Centre.

The Community Services Manager supported that the trees need to be planted in an area of significance and suggested if a decision on their location is agreed to soon, the trees could be planted in this planting season.

It was agreed that the matter be deferred and revisited at the next meeting to allow for further consideration of the location and when the trees could be planted.


The Mayor attended the meeting at 2.50pm.

RESOLVED

THAT the Golden Steps Trust is granted $1,000.00 from the Waihi Ward Discretionary Fund with the proviso that the group become registered as an incorporated society, and

THAT the group be advised that individuals requiring assistance apply to them in the first instance and not to Council, and
