CONFIRMATION OF MINUTES

MOTION: THAT the minutes of the previous meeting be accepted as a true and correct record.


MATTERS ARISING FROM MINUTES

Carpark Refurbishment

John Inglese tabled a redesigned carpark to allow for 34 spaces (1 disabled space). Traffic Committee recommended that this be approved. Palm tree be moved. C Flynn requested that we explore lighting of the tree in new location to make it more attractive.

Slogan Launch

Launch was considered very successful. Positive article was also published in the Leader. 43 people attended the launch. Want to keep these people involved. Cr Frawley indicated it was very positive and we should keep momentum going.

Marketing Manager’s Report

Refer to the Attachment No. 1

Graffiti Task Force

A report on the Graffiti Task Force would be submitted to the Committee on a regular basis.

Security Service – Update

Discussed proposal. Will have benefits in terms of insurance costs. Cr Frawley suggested we write to police to get a list of all anti-social offence in Hurstville ** the hours suggested for security controls.

Should also talk to Botany Council about how they perform these.

Need to advise Chubb of Council’s position on this matter.

Noted that many shop keepers may have their own security in place already.

Tim Stewart advised that any trial must be:- (1) Measurable (police information critical); (2) Owned by the Business Community; and (3) integrated with all existing security patrols.

RESOLUTION: THAT PPE to get 12 months crime figures and Chubb be advised that he matter is progressing. DM-Business & Financial Services to explore a renting levy and report on how it could be used.

FURTHER THAT a Report to Council be prepared to get “in-principle” approval to go ahead down this avenue of security patrols and it necessary to obtain quotations from firms.

Image Bank Report

C Flynn advised that Council equipment could be utilised (along with students) to obtain photographic data. Cost is therefore minimised.

Public accessibility could be done via the Library – images we then catalogued and placed on Internet etc.

Committee endorsed this and PPE to coordinate the obtaining of funds from the Government and activating the project.

Web Site Report

Library putting together an email reference search facility.

Will look using Council’s Web Page as well as exploring a new domain name.

Chamber of Commerce Report

Focus a building up membership to be reflections of business and industry in the area.

Biggest issues
* security/graffiti
* loud, bad language – particularly offensive to the elderly people.

Looking to use dinners and getting Ministers to the area.

McMahon Street was thought of highly and it was considered that Council could market its existence to the other end of Forest Road

Cr Frawley noted that if we can remove factors which make people uncomfortable (loud unruly behaviour) than the town will take off. Committee members must walk the street and become familiar with the issues.

RESOLUTION: Invite all key managers, Kevin Greene MP and Committee members between 3 and 4 pm. This should be done ASAP during school days.


GENERAL BUSINESS

Dora Street & Queens Road Traffic Lights

Heading east up Dora St and turning right into Queens Rd is very difficult due to through traffic. RTA is involved in phasing. Aim is to allow movement of Queens Road. J Inglese to follow up.

Brochure for HTCC

Refer to the Attachment No. 2 for the proposed format of the newsletter to the owners and traders in CBD.

Communication is critical particularly to building owners who pay the form centre levy. Could also go onto the web site.

RESOLUTION: Trial of the brochure bi-monthly with 3 issues to take place over 6 months and 1500 copies produced.

NEXT MEETING

4.00pm, Monday, 7 February 2000 in the Council Foyer.
