If you have concerns of any sort, this is your opportunity to provide some feedback to WRC's Long Term Plan. Submissions do not need to be long or complicated - a line or two on a subject that concerns you is much better than silence! Use the links below to access the documents. At present, on a cursory glance, I'm having trouble locating anything specifically connected with transport issues. If I do, I'll let you know - and if you get there first, let me know so I can alert others!

Kind regards,

Judy

30 UNDER 30 PROJECT APPLICATIONS FOR THE PROJECT ARE NOW OPEN

Some of you may have heard about the 30 under 30 project that the Youth Council are currently involved with. Applications for the project are now open. See the intro below and please direct anyone you think would have an interest to:www.hamilton.govt.nz/30under30

Hamilton is a young city. More than 40 per cent of its residents are aged under 30 years of age.

As part of Hamilton City Council’s Youth Action Plan, Council is collaborating with the Youth Council Advisory Panel to profile 30 of the city’s successful or high-achieving young people.

30 Under 30 is a multi-media project crossing a number of platforms. You’ll see profiles of the 30 young Hamiltonians in this section of Council’s website, in the monthly City News publication, and through various social media channels.

We’re looking for young people who are achieving or contributing to our city and its community in a number of fields.

They include:

- Sport or athletic pursuits

- Academic study

- Arts and culture

- Community work

- Environmental and conservation work

- Overcoming adversity

- Employment and career

The first phase of the 30 Under 30 project is a call for nominations or applications to participate. Fill in the form below – or send a link to people you would like to see participate – to lodge a nomination or application. You can nominate someone else, but you will need to advise them that you are nominating them for this project.

Applications/nominations close on 31 March. Once all applications/nominations are in, a panel comprising Youth Council Advisory Panel and Council staff will assess applications, and in May, we’ll begin rolling out the profiles.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

L IVING STREETS

We're unfortunately not going to be able to do our pair of autumn Sunday Strolls this year - however we will most definitely be back with the annual Spring strolls around Labour Weekend! For the same reason, we won't be having our monthly meeting this month but will aim for April as usual.

In the meanwhile, two things that people might like to give some thought to:

1. Thanks to some very hard work on behalf of Living Streets member Rex Bushell, we have a new updated print run of our CBD Lunchtime walks map. Some copies have already gone into the international students' orientation packs at the University of Waikato, and new supplies have been delivered to the i-Site in Garden Place and will be going to the Hamilton Gardens information office. If any of you know of other locations that might like a few (or even quite a lot) of copies of the map, do get them to email me - I'm very happy to drop copies off to anyone who can use them.

2. Peter Bos is continuing his great work with searching out and mapping places in Hamilton that might be turned into interesting walking routes. Attached is a draft copy of the available lanes and alleyways in Frankton village, which could become brilliant pedestrian and cycle shortcuts (many of them are quite wide, and they need to be imagined with some street art and some pop-up shops installed!). It would be great if we could promote this sort of thing and help to encourage HCC to get actively involved in developing such plans. This kind of thing is relatively cheap to do and could make an enormous difference to how both locals and visitors to Hamilton see the place. If you feel like emailing councillors or mentioning such things in submissions to the HCC annual plan, please do - even a one-line comment can make a difference!

Kind regards,

Judy
