Agenda Items

 

1.    Naming the Destination Playground

Type of Report:

Operational

Legal Reference:

N/A

Document ID:

Reporting Officer/s & Unit:

Rebecca Ainsworth, Marketing Manager

 

1.1   Purpose of Report

To consider a range of names for the new playground at Anderson Park and select a preferred option.

 

At the Meeting

A substitute motion was immediately proposed, noting that even if the playground was formally named, it was most likely that the community would continue to refer to it as “Anderson Park Playground”. If in the future an investor wishes to develop the playground further, this motion would retain the option for naming rights to be included in any negotiations.

It was noted that it was good to see the range of Māori names proposed by the public and this would be an option that would be interesting to explore for the future, noting that full consultation would be required if this were to occur.

 

Officer’s Recommendation

The Strategy and Infrastructure Committee:

a.     Consider a selection of names that the community has provided for the new playground at Anderson Park;

b.     Consider the site visit undertaken with members of the Māori Consultative Committee; and

c.     Select and adopt a preferred option.

d.     That a DECISION OF COUNCIL is required urgently due to the opening of the new playground at Anderson Park being scheduled before the next Council meeting.

 

 


 

Substitute Motion

Councillors Brosnan/ Taylor

That Council

 

a.    considers the playgrounds design, location and suggested names from the community

b.    decides that the playground will be referred to as the ‘Anderson Park Playground’

c.     notes the opportunities for future stages and naming opportunities

d.    That a DECISION OF COUNCIL is required urgently due to the opening of the new playground at Anderson Park being scheduled before the next Council meeting.

2.1   Purpose of Report

To seek approval for the Marketing Department to apply for external funding to support the Elite Road National Cycling Champs to be held in Napier 4-6 January 2019.

 

At the Meeting

In response to questions from Councillors it was clarified that:

·         sports events organisers are able to apply to Council for funding; applications are assessed against a number of criteria including the likely economic and social benefits to the city and the level and type of support being sought. It was noted that this particular report is rather Council applying for external funding.

·         Waste free events are an important part of the draft Waste Management and Minimisation Plan there is full support from the Infrastructure Directorate for Council taking the lead on running waste free events.

A correction was noted to the name of the organisation “St John Ambulance”.

 

Committee's recommendation

The Strategy and Infrastructure Committee:

a.     Approve an application being made to Lion Foundation for $50,000 to assist with costs to manage the Elite Road National Cycling Champs in January 2019.
