What's happening in your community. Council Submits $10m Water Infrastructure List for Govermment Approval The Council finalised a $10m- list of projects last week which will see residents benefit from upgraded Three Waters infrastructure. The project aims to create a path where children and families can bike and walk, and also to help encourage more people to leave their car at home. KICKSTART Residents have raised concems about vehicle speeds in the area and the Council is working with the school to improve safety in the area. The new section of path will continue from the existing path along the western side of Rangiora Woodend Road, before crossing into School Road It will link with Waka Kotahi, NZ Transport Agency's planned signalised crossing point on State HRVE R GO MOTORCYCLE RDERS EVENT 2020 The funding is part of a stimulus package made available to the Council in return for signing up to the first stage of the Govemment's Three Waters (drinking water, wastewater and storm water) Reform programme. This funding will allow a number of projects. which were planned for future years, to start immediately Highway I which will be ready for the new school tem in 2021. without needing any significant up-front capital costs from rates. In order to access this funding, the Council was required to submit a list of projects which could start quickly and be mostly completed within a year. A section of Rangiora Woodend Road, near School Road is also wide enough to look at options for improving the layout of the road. such as adding car parking on both sides of the road and new planting. There are two options for locals to consider. Earlier this week the Council nominated the following 11 projects: Feedback on the road layout is open until 22 October and drop-in sessions will allow directly affected residents to talk through the proposals with staff.
