July meeting notice

The next Residents’ Association Meeting is on Monday July 18th, 7.30pm at the Newtown Community Hall, 71 Daniell St

Jenny Rains, Wellington City Council Community Services Manager, and Mike Mendonca, Chief Resilience Manager, will be our guests.

A Community Coordinator for Newtown. This is a proposal for an additional staff member within WCC, to work closely with the community and facilitate contact with the Council services – an outcome of our May meeting with Kevin Lavery and others from Council. Jenny Rains will be discussing ideas of what this role might look like.

Funding for Community Facilities. The WCC Long Term Plan has funding allocated for upgrading community facilities in Newtown over the next three years. The task for 2016/17 is to develop a concept through community engagement, before moving on to capital projects.

Resilient Wellington.  Wellington is part of the 100 Resilient Cities project pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation – 100RC for short.  Mike Mendonca will give us an overview of what is involved.

This is an important meeting for future planning!  Do come, hear what’s going on and share your thoughts.  Everyone is welcome.
