Proposed Pump Track for Shirley

“Temporary Pump Track Consultation To Get Under Way”
“Consultation around a proposed temporary pump track on Shirley Road can go ahead now funding has been approved for the project. Earlier this month, the Christchurch City Council approved $87,850 [http://councillive.ccc.govt.nz/video/8314] for the creation of the relocatable track. The Waipapa/Papanui Innes Community Board at the end of last year, was approached by local boy Shannon Smith, who organised a petition in support of a bike or skate park.”

I do support Shannon’s request for a permanent pump track to be located within MacFarlane Park, which is why I got involved and emailed the Papanui-Innes Community Board, after seeing the article (“Temporary pump track not good enough – Shirley pupil”: A Shirley Primary School pupil says the push to install a temporary pump track is not the option he wants) in the Nor’West News [Page 11]. (see Timeline below, 18th December 2018)

Based on my local knowledge, I sent an email to the Papanui-Innes Community Board:
– to outline my observations regarding the proposed location, and
– providing two different permanent options for a track located in MacFarlane Park,
which would integrate this new facility into areas already well used by the children/families of Shirley. (see Timeline below, 21st February 2019)
Local children naturally go to the Jebson Street part of MacFarlane Park (Option 1: Flying Fox, Shirley Community Garden, Toilets & Seating), or to the Acheson Avenue end of MacFarlane Park (Option 2: Playground, Basketball Court, MacFarlane Park Centre, Dairy, Toilets & Seating).
I am currently researching permanent pump track options, based on the Gap Filler pump track project #detour (corner of Manchester and Gloucester streets.)

I do not support the proposed temporary modular pump track being purchased/installed on 10 Shirley Road.
– The 10 Shirley Road site was chosen, as it is the only location in Shirley, that has the required 40m setback from residents, due to the noise levels associated with the modular pump track design/construction. Due to these restrictions it cannot be installed in MacFarlane Park.
– Local children in Shirley know there is an “invisible boundary line”, they are free to play unsupervised, as long as they don’t cross the major roads and stay within MacFarlane Park.
– The proposed pump track will be mainly used after school and on the weekends, when the crossing lights (red light runners) from Shirley Primary to 10 Shirley Road, will not be supervised by a teacher.
– The proposed modular pump track “Quadragon”, is the next size up from the “Speed Ring” modular pump track in Burwood (corner of New Brighton Road and Brooker Ave).
– What is the expected life of this temporary modular pump track design? As the Burwood track is already showing signs of wear & tear (installed June 2018).
– What is the cost of the base required for the proposed pump track, to be installed at the 10 Shirley Road location? The Burwood track has a concrete base with gravel top coat, is this included in the $87,850 price?
– Residents are awaiting the “Richmond Community Needs Analysis” report by Sarah Wylie & “Shirley Community Centre Feasibility Study” by Peter Burley. When a decision is made to build a new community centre on the 10 Shirley Road site, this temporary modular pump track will need to be relocated to a new site, but due to its restrictions where?

As a community we need to ask ourselves whether we want temporary facilities as part of our children’s childhood memories?
Or whether we should be investing in building permanent facilities? Facilities that enliven our community, and rise up a sense of identity and well-being through the memories created, when our children connect with our community spaces.

Timeline:
– 24th August 2018

RE: CCC Meeting 28 March 2019, Item 20: 2018/19 Capital Endowment Fund Applications: Shirley Pump Track
Could you please forward this email to the Council members today, before they discuss this funding application at the Council meeting tomorrow (28 March 2019) morning.

This Is What a Librarian Looks Like

“This Is What a Librarian Looks Like”
A Celebration of Libraries, Communities, and Access to Information
By Kyle Cassidy
https://christchurch.bibliocommons.com/item/show/1001618037

“Libraries can be – and in many places are – anything their communities need them to be. The power of libraries is their willingness and ability to assess the interests, desires, and needs of their patrons as they change over time. Libraries are community centers, schools, health clinics, post offices, movie theaters, job placement centers, and infinite other things.”
Matt Krueger | Teen Services Librarian | Irondequoit Public Library

“Libraries are more important to our world than people realize. We are the ‘holders of forever’ ensuring access to our cultural heritage, while providing the free access and flow of information to anyone in the world. All you have to do is ask.”
Kyle K. Courtney | Copyright Adviser | Harvard University Library

“Libraries are centers of discovery and a safe place to go where one is encouraged and supported in finding information that is empowering and transformative.”
Jessie Nachem | Librarian | The Wright Institute Oakland Public Library

“Libraries strive to be a safe place for the maligned members of our communities. Librarians want you to be welcomed and find a second home with us.”
Amy Call | Reference and Instruction Librarian | Marygrove College

“I believe in the library as a place for a great exchange of information, discovery, and creativity. Libraries encourage open minds with open doors, open books, and open screens.”
Natasha Arce | International School Librarian | School of the Nations Macau

“Libraries are the heart of community learning.”
Samantha Marison | Student/Aspiring Librarian | University of Connecticut

“I have always thought of libraries as a refuge – as places to collaborate and learn. Libraries offer people the freedom to be themselves.”
Claire Schmieder | Adult Services Librarian | Cherry Hill Public Library

“Libraries mean that no matter what your situation, you will always have a place where you can go to find the knowledge you need to be the person you want to be.”
Natalie Dejonghe | Ebook Trainer/Grant Project Coordinator | Reaching Across Illinois Library System

“Not only do I provide books to my littlest patrons, I help their parents learn how to parent. I help them find materials on behavior, education, life development stages, and much more.”
Valerie Bogert | Youth Services Librarian | Springfield Greene County Library

“For many immigrants to this country, the library is the first place where they feel accepted.”
Alicia Long | Reference Librarian | State College of Florida

“Libraries can help stop a generational cycle of abuse, victimization, or anger. They can rehabilitate, help people grow, and change in life.”
Sam Leif | Correctional Facility Librarian | Colorado Department of Correction

“Libraries provide important services that target underrepresented communities. Without libraries, many individuals could not read, write, or use a computer. These basic services can change lives. I want people to realize that libraries are transforming every day. Libraries are pulling our communities together and strengthening them. People don’t know about so many of the services libraries provide.”
Marian Mays | Recent MSLIS Graduate | University of Kentucky

“Libraries provide a community gathering place with resources, information, entertainment, and socializing for no commercial payoff. Our payoff is a healthy, literate society.”
Sara Sunshine Holloway | Teen Services Librarian | Tacoma Public Library

“Libraries are becoming social centers where people can come for recreation or to learn.”
Mario Veyna-Reyes | Las Vegas-Clark County Library District

“Books change lives. They expose individuals to ideas that can save the world of one or the world of many. Librarians are guides to the many pathways books offer. Information is my lifeline. I do what I do to share this lifeline with those who need it most.”
Anna E. Gentry | Network Librarian | Firstline Schools

“What would we do without our elders? Grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles? They’re the libraries and archives of our lives and society. Librarians and archives, like elders, reaffirm our sense of being, our purpose, and help inform who we are and how we interact within society.” Rachel E. Winston | MSIS Candidate, VF Austin (May 2015) | VF Austin Information School

“If all the libraries in the community shut down, the community would lose more than just the ability to distribute library materials. Librarians are a hub of resources for communities and provide opportunities for people to help themselves and connect with other members of the community.” Karina Reyna | MLS Student/Knowledge River Graduate Assistant | University of Arizona Knowledge River

“Reading and learning can open the mind, but only as far as the reader or learner is willing to be opened. I can’t make anyone embrace change – I simply continue to provide the opportunities. It’s all up to you. It’s what you choose to spend your time one, and how much you choose to challenge yourself. Nowhere is this more obvious than in a prison.”
Erin Boyington | Library Technician II | Sterling Correctional Facility, Colorado Dept. of Corrections

“Libraries are more relevant today than ever. In these challenging times, early childhood education is in great demand and trained children’s librarians are being sought our in droves for their experience and expertise.”
Christopher Lassen | Library Information Supervisor/Children’s Librarian | Brooklyn Public Library

“The library is the only place anyone – poor or wealthy – can go with a question and find a real person, capable of reading between the lines, who can help find an answer. Google doesn’t work if you aren’t even sure yourself with you’re looking for.”
Megan Hodge | Teaching and Learning Librarian | Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU)

“Libraries are the embodiment of lifelong learning.”
Rebecca Leonhard | Director of LAS Libraries | Leysin American School in Switzerland

“Libraries are a safe space where you can challenge your views about life.”
Scott Nicholson | Associate Professor | Syracuse University School of Information Studies

“Why libraries? Innovation, creativity, inspiration, diversity, community.”
Courtney Young | 2014 President of the American Library Association | Penn State Greater Allegheny Library

Community Facilities Network Plan

The below information is from the Christchurch City Council website, https://christchurch.infocouncil.biz/Open/2019/03/SOC_20190306_AGN_3001_AT_WEB.htm, 6 March 2019.

16. Community Facilities Network Plan
Reference: 19/207225
Presenter(s):
John Filsell, Head of Community Support Governance and Partnerships, Paul McKeefry, Community Facilities Specialist.

1. Purpose of Report
1.1 The purpose of this report is to update the Social, Community Development and Housing Committee on the development of the Community Facilities Network Plan.

2. Executive Summary
2.1 The development of a Community Facilities Network Plan project is underway and will include advice on specific facility opportunities identified by Council.
2.2 This report provides an overview of project goals, scope and timeframe along with emerging information.

3. Staff Recommendations
That the Social, Community Development and Housing Committee:
1. Receives the report.

4. Key Points
4.1 Key points are discussed in section 5 of this report below.

5. Context/Background
Issue or Opportunity
5.1 A Community Facilities Network Plan us being developed that will provide a framework to inform and guide Council’s decision making processes over the provision and operation of community facilities. It will also provide information on specific facility opportunities identified by Council; namely, a Shirley Community Centre, a Multicultural Centre, a Centre for the Dallington-Avondale-Burwood area and an Okains Bay Community Centre.
5.2 Project objectives include:
· Explore the feasibility of four potential community facilities identified by Council.
· Describe current community facility provision including use, capacity, degree to which facilities are fit-for-purpose, cost and asset condition.
· Develop a current list and framework for recording facilities provided by Council and others.
· Cross-reference existing provision against community need.
· Develop a framework and criteria that assists Council in making decisions on the provision of community facilities including working with others.
· Produce a Network Plan as a living document to be updated over time.

Strategic Alignment
5.3 The LTP 2018-2028 Service Plan is aligned with Council’s strategic direction of enabling active citizenship and connected communities in respect of community facilities, it states:
· We [Council] provide community centres, halls and houses to encourage participation in local activities and build a sense of community.
· We [Council] offer support to community organisations to help them deliver the valuable services they provide.
5.4 On 22 June 2018 Council resolved (CLTP/2018/00017):
· That the Council requests staff to complete the Community Facilities Network Plan as soon as practicable; and approves an additional $170,000 operational expenditure in 2018/19 to expedite this, inform next year’s and future years’ annual plans. Potential developments include but are not limited to; the Shirley Community Centre, a Multicultural Centre, a Centre for Avondale, Burwood and Dallington area and an Okains Bay Community Centre.

Network Plan Scope
5.5 The Plan will primarily cover community facilities owned and/or managed by Christchurch City Council including halls, community centres and cottages, leased facilities for volunteer libraries, toy libraries, community gardens and play centres. For the avoidance of doubt these are detailed in Community Facilities Asset Management Plan (17/696137).
5.6 Other facilities will be analysed to inform the “network” and identify opportunities to partner with others and/or signal gaps:
· Community facilities (or similar) situated on reserve managed the Parks Unit.
· Council-owned heritage classified buildings used as community facilities.
· Facilities owned by others.
5.7 The plan process will consider but not be limited to the following inputs:
· Demographic, e.g. – Population, Diversity, Geographical spread
· Financial, – CAPEX for new and R&R, OPEX
· Range of options for facility provision, including but not limited to:
– Mixed model use such as community centre and libraries (Citizen Hub Strategy)
– Facilities provided in partnership including draft partnership documents and templates
– The promotion of non-Council facilities
– Non-asset solutions.
– Current and planned provision of facilities by Council and others.
– Utilization and availability of facilities.
5.8 Council owned facilities currently leased by Early Learning Centres will not be included in the Plan as Council has approved a process to determine its future involvement (13 December 2018).

Project time frame
5.9 The project involves two workstreams that are interconnected. The development of a Network Plan and the consideration of potential facility opportunities identified by Council (see section 5.1 of this report).
5.10 Information on the identified facilities will be available to Council in order to inform any debate at the conclusion of the 2019/2020 Annual Plan process in June 2019. Any Council decisions on these facilities in the Annual Plan process will inform and update the Draft Network Plan which will then be finalised for Council consideration prior to September 30 2019. Conversely the emerging findings of the Network Plan will be used to inform the advice provided to Council on the identified facilities.
5.11 The table below summarises the key outputs and dates:

Project Output (Date)
– Initiate background research, project plan including timelines and milestones (29 October 2018)

Richmond Community Needs Analysis

“The Board and Governance Team see Richmond as a priority area, the research is to look at the strengths, needs and gaps of the area.
Once the research is completed the findings will be presented to the Community Board.
Scope of study: Aims and Objectives
The aim of the research is to develop a profile of the Richmond community and their needs in terms of current and future recreation, sports, arts and health and social service provision
Specifically, the research will fulfil the following objectives:
(a) Provide an accurate demographic profile of Richmond and identify future demographic trends of this community, drawing on 2018 Census data.
(b) Create a profile of existing recreation, sports and arts and social and health agencies in the community.
(c) Profile residents’ existing access to recreation, parks, sports, arts, health and social services and potential future demand for these services, focusing especially on the way residents are interfacing with Council assets and services: what is working well, and what would make this community better.
(d) Develop a document that will assist with future planning for Richmond, taking into account barriers to access, and future patterns of access fort different services.
(e) Gaps and issues in existing provision of services will be identified.
(f) Gather information that can inform future uses of the former Shirley Community Centre site.”

Community Needs: Community Centres

Just a quick update. I finished my feedback for “Draft OARC Regenerate Plan” for Christchurch last night.
https://www.riseuprichmond.nz/draft-oarc-regeneration-plan-feedback/
Supporting Information:
https://www.riseuprichmond.nz/draft-oarc-regeneration-plan-tell-our-stories/
https://www.riseuprichmond.nz/draft-oarc-regeneration-plan-visitor-experience/
https://www.riseuprichmond.nz/draft-oarc-regeneration-plan-community-needs/

Since the beginning of this year I have been researching the community needs for Shirley, then Richmond.
But recently I have been researching Dallington & looking into my idea for a community centre at the former Burwood Primary School site, so that the Shirley Library building at The Palms can be sold.
I remembered Bebe Frayle from the Dallington Residents Association LTP presentation: http://councillive.ccc.govt.nz/video/7566.

If you have a look at https://www.riseuprichmond.nz/draft-oarc-regeneration-plan-community-needs/, my research shows the need for two community centres:
OARC Regeneration Plan Idea for Shirley/Richmond by Joanna Gould
“Shirley/Richmond, new Community Centre at 10 Shirley Road opposite Shirley Primary School, includes Shirley Library, Learning Spaces, Service Centre, sell Shirley Library building at The Palms.”
OARC Regeneration Plan Idea for Dallington/Burwood/Avondale by Joanna Gould
“Dallington/Burwood/Avondale, new Community Centre at 255 New Brighton Road close to All Saints Church, includes Coastal-Burwood Governance Unit more central to their residents, small Meeting/Learning spaces with kitchen, Service Centre, Volunteer Library similar to Redcliffs Village Library, sell Shirley Library building at The Palms.”

It was frustrating to find the Coastal-Burwood Community Board had asked Sarah Wylie to research their Community Needs in 2017.
http://christchurch.infocouncil.biz/Open/2017/12/CBCB_20171204_AGN_1403_AT.PDF
Pg 69-103 ‘Coastal-Burwood Community Facility Needs Assessment’
Prepared for Community Governance Team, Coastal Burwood By Sarah Wylie
Pg 102 “Strong feedback came through supporting development of a community hub facility serving Burwood, Avondale and Dallington.
The former Burwood School site was identified as the best location for this, close to All Saints Church, another key amenity in the area.
Demand was identified for smaller meeting spaces and accompanying kitchen able to cater for group activities, particularly for older adults.”

The former Burwood Primary School site is now:

Attachments: List of disposals as at 30 November 2018
“Pg 5, 3452777, Canterbury, Ministry of Education, 255 New Brighton Road, New Brighton, Christchurch, Disposal Status: Right of First Refusal”

The latest updates from the Coastal-Burwood Community Board are:
http://christchurch.infocouncil.biz/Open/2018/11/CBCB_20181105_AGN_2273_AT.htm
“4. Community Board Plan – Update against Outcomes
On 1 October 2018, the Board met to receive and review progress on its Community Board Plan 2017 – 2019, which had been monitored against the Board’s agreed Outcomes and Priorities.
A community facility for Dallington/Burwood was seen as a priority. It was agreed that the Board would next review its Board Plan in June 2019.”
http://christchurch.infocouncil.biz/Open/2018/12/CBCB_20181203_AGN_2277_AT.htm
“5. Deputations by Appointment
Burwood/Avondale/Dallington Group – Burwood/Avondale/Dallington Community Hub, Bebe Frayle and David Collins will speak on behalf of the Burwood/Avondale/Dallington Group regarding the Burwood/Avondale/Dallington Community Hub.”
“5.4.1 Burwood, Avondale and Dallington Community Group
The Burwood, Avondale and Dallington community group meetings continue to happen monthly. The group is supported by Coastal-Burwood Community Governance staff and Board members. The group are currently organising three community events, one in each area as well as a combined event to be held in March of 2019.
The group are completing a feasibility study with regards to having a combined Community Hub to collectively service the three suburbs. The Burwood, Avondale and Dallington areas have dramatically reduced community spaces/places as a result of the 2010/2011 earthquakes with approximately over half of the land and housing lost to the red zone.”

Obviously my concern now is, if the Dallington/Burwood/Avondale community were researched by Sarah Wylie in September 2017, and still have no community centre, and have to wait til June 2019 for the Board to review its Board Plan.

What does this mean for the Shirley/Richmond community, that have been researched by Sarah Wylie in October/November 2018, with a report due to be presented to the Papanui-Innes Community Board early next year, when are we likely to see a community centre?
