2. South Terrace Activators

Alex noted that he has been investigating an artistic / sculptural bike rack to install in front of his new coffee roastery on South Tce. Work continues. Jon noted he would be attending a conference on bike infrastructure and would report back to the group on his findings.

Rachel has spoken to Morrison about extending the East-West mural on to their warehouse. She will continue to follow up.

Theresa and Iain reported back from the Light Pole group. Of the 46 poles on south tce in south fremantle the group felt 21 were paintable. They have met and their current thinking is to have the paintings extend to 2m, have a blue background and have the flags of local residents painted to reflect the multicultural community. Precinct members were supportive of the groups ideas and agreed the group should start with one and go from there.

Ken was still keen to see concrete bus stops installed and painted. Jon agreed to investigate the location of unused bus stops on Ken’s behalf. It was noted that residents sometimes opposed the installation of bus shelters but at least two of the South Tce stops were in business areas so possibly more likely to be accepted.

3. Business Group
• Belinda noted that there was strong support from local South Tce traders to work together to promote business in the area. Belinda has discussed with Council staff and has received an offer by a member of the Economic Development Team to support the development of a Business Group as an adjunct to the Precinct Group.

• Alex noted that he felt a meeting in early December (a Tues evening) was viable and Belinda agreed to coordinate.

4. Precinct Meeting Schedule for 2014
• It was agreed that the Precinct would meet at 7pm at the Meeting Place every second month on the first Thursday evening of the month beginning in February 2014.

• This would mean that the next Precinct meeting would be Thursday 6th February 2014.

• Iain Bailey agreed to review development proposals which he continued to receive from Council and to bring any he felt may be of interest to the group as appropriate.

4. Meet the Candidates
• Andrew Sullivan and Claudia Green both outlined their ideas for South Fremantle and were asked by questions by Precinct Members.

5. Closing
• Belinda thanked everyone for coming, wished the Candidates the best of luck and encouraged everyone to invite South Fremantle residents to the Pizza Fiesta on Saturday November 2nd 2013, 4pm – 8pm @ Parmelia Park.
