Emily Place Innovating Streets 4 People Pilot Update (see link below) - plans have landed! progress to date, proposed temp changes (informed by the data & inspiring ideas that emerged from co-design process), next steps Have Your Say (till 18 April) webpage & feedback options:

Fits in with the City Centre Masterplan vision, local board plans, and of course CCRG's hopes for a more people-friendly (just nicer really) street environment promoting safety, neighbourhoods and neighbourlihoodness (is that a word? should be!) for us all.

CCRG is highly supportive of the agreed plans like the city centre masterplan, Access for Everyone, and this Innovating streets kaupapa, because of all the potential benefits for everyone, especially residents.

Many of the positions that CCRG have agreed upon and for which we advocate, can flow from the implementation of these plans, such as air quality improvements, more trees/greenery, noise reductions, street Safety, ease of getting about, and just a more people-friendly city centre neighbourhood.

Share the streets 'cos residents live here!

Million-dollar dumps: Publicly owned properties fall to rack and ruin

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

To the side of East Auckland’s Te Ara ki Uta ki Tai cycleway, nestled in overgrown greenery, is a building that wouldn’t get a second glance if it weren’t for hot pink graffiti.

The house, owned by Auckland Council subsidiary Auckland Transport, was used as a site office by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency staff working on the $46 million cycleway between Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive, Auckland Transport spokesman Mark Hannan said.

But locals say the property has been all but destroyed by vandals since the cycleway was completed in 2016.

The property is one of several that have become run down and derelict under the ownership of local government.
