Report on outcome of ‘restart’ meeting

Fifty residents attended the meeting to discuss whether, or how, to ‘restart’ the Stonefields Residents Association following its recent problems and the resignation of several committee members. We were also joined by Colin Davis and Kit Parkinson of the Ōrākei Local Board which has been a great supporter of the SRA since its inception in 2012.

We discussed the current situation with our Association, what role it should play in our community, options available, and the best way forward. A vote was then taken on whether to (a) formally shut down the SRA or (b) to restart it with a new committee, etc. Following discussion, residents took a vote.

We’re pleased to report that residents voted unanimously to get the SRA up and running again. This will be greatly helped by the 15 members who have generously volunteered to assist in this.

We’ll be meeting in the next week or so to get the process under way. In the meantime, if there is anything you’d like to know, or if you’d possibly like to assist our efforts, please drop us a note.

Making Stonefields a great community to live in
