Recap: the week ended 23 August

Think Papanui’s curator Simon Britten rounds up stories from the past week:

On Saturday, the St Vincent De Paul store in Papanui reopened. Coverage of the opening was Think Papanui’s top post of the week on Facebook.

Consultation on proposed transport projects in the Cranford Street area closed on Monday 19 August.

No new bus lanes through Papanui just yet

Also on Monday, the City Council confirmed that the Main North Road bus priority project was delayed – construction had been expected to start in July. Think Papanui has approached both the Council and NZTA for comment – keep an eye out for a follow-up article over the weekend.

Final nominations for Papanui Ward in the 2019 local body elections have been confirmed.

I posted some information on the agenda for today’s meeting of the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board.

Council staff have recommended a 30km/h speed zone for some Papanui streets, following recent consultation.

I reported on last Saturday’s meeting of the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board, which unanimously recommended traffic lights for the Harewood/Gardiners/Breens intersection.

Parenting Week 2019 runs for ten days during September.

A peek through the window at the current state of Redwood Library

The reopening of Redwood Library has been delayed due to structural concerns – a mobile library service will continue to visit the site two days a week.
