Pedestrian/cycling bridges across Waikato river are needed
Why Hillcrest alone?????????? If so work in with Ministry of Education ie with schools.
Needs to off set sports funding. In future less people will be playing sport and we need to encourage activities which will enhance other skills.
Need to encourage less cars in the city.Walking and cycling way to go.
Also look at pedestrian / cycling bridges at Strwbrick Landing and the Gardens thus encoraging people from each side of the river to walk or cycle.
Need to look at pedestrian cycle way between gardens and Glenview club.
Both not necessary if pools built in suburbs. Once again need to look at commercial opportunities where large numbers of people meet.
Only charge for tour buses as they on charge the tourists for a free service. More businesses ie extra eating places. The council could also sell plants and apply for carbon creditsa with all the new trees they anticipate planting at the gardens and gullies.
The existing pine trees in the gullies could be milled to reduce costs. Carbon credits applied for with new planting.
We’re proposing to balance our books in 2024/25 and reset our debt-to-revenue ratio to 300% for 2021/22 then decreasing by 5% each year until 2025/26 where we will remain at 280% from 2026/27 to 2030/31. Rates are proposed to increase by an average of 8.9% in 2021/22 and 4.9% annually until 2030/31.
The Council must seek to increase its boundaries ie Tamahere to increase its rates take. Currently many people outside Hamilton use the services roads pools etc but contribute little.
We have lots of other projects included in our Long-Term Plan. We want to hear you views on any of them.
Hamilton East is fast becoming the go to dinning area.The business centre and Steele Park needs attention. For inxtance changing rooms and new toilets should be a prioity. Hanging flower baskets [like Otorohanga would differeniate tGrey Street and make it more appealing. Parking is also a disaster. The Council must work the owners of the land,on which the Eastside hotel stands to encourage the sealed area below the hotel to be usedas public parking.
