Motion 1 from Councillor Tara Deacy
That this committee propose that DCC will make available street grading information online within a short period after grading, a schedule for grading so residents can see when their street is being cleaned/graded and any information related to grading.
Motion 2 from Councillor Tara Deacy
That this committee agrees to the installation of protective fencing around the playground area in Stannaway/Lorcan O’Toole Park. This has been requested for some time by local residents and the playground has been damaged considerately by fire a number of times. Parents don’t feel safe when unleased dogs can ramble through it while children use the facility. Can we address this as a matter of urgency? This is a very well used facility for the area and needs to be addressed.
Motion 3 from Councillor Dermot Lacey
This committee requests the Manager to again examine the possibility of providing a controlled dog run space in Herbert Park or Ringsend Park.
Motion 4 from Councillor Tara Deacy
That this committee agrees to begin the process involved in the discretionary funding process in a timely manner, to include discussions and analysis of poverty profiles in the area, and to ensure a more equitable process as was agreed last year.
Motion 5 from Councillor Mary Freehill
That the Dublin City Council road sign on Parnell Avenue, Dublin 12 be urgently replaced. As can be seen in photo supplied the letters have worn off the sign so it is very difficult for people trying to locate this road to find it.
Motion 6 from Councillors Mary Freehill and Anne Feeney
That Oaklands Drive, Rathgar be included in 2021 budget for road resurfacing.
Motion 7 from Councillor Tara Deacy
That this committee supports the implementation of an action plan to address the ongoing issue of litter and general waste disposal in the Kimmage/Crumlin Area as a matter of urgency. This should include a review of scheduling for bin collection and emptying, number of bins in the areas and engagement with local business re their responsibilities. Consultation and discussion with local interest groups must also be included.
Motion 8 from Councillor Dermot Lacey.
This Committee requests the Manager to examine the ideas submitted by a constituent in relation to Herbert Park (and circulated with this motion) and to report on same to the Area Committee."
“I am on holidays in Wexford and played Crazy Golf with my kids the other day at http://abbeypar3.com/ on the Hook Peninsula last week, where golf, footee golf and Crazy Golf is on offer. We've played here before and I mustn't have been paying attention - what struck me forcibly this year was the multi-generational groups playing Crazy Golf together. It was heartening to see. Grandparents and parents (including me) playing and engaging enjoyably with the kids of all ages in their charge, rather than overseeing them at arm's length glass-eyed/ fear-filled in a playground. It struck me that as part of DCC efforts to encourage citizens to #LiveLocal; ... view the full agenda text for item 8.
