But instead it went back to the community board for yet another vote – this time over placement once again. City council staff have recommended this time round that the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board put the yellow lines on the streets that intersect with Rose St, including Fairview, Marley View, Palmside Sts, and Hoon Hay Rd. Cashmere residents asked almost 14 months ago for the city council to put yellow no parking lines. There were concerns about parking along the street too close to the kerb and making it hard for other motorists to see. Lower Cashmere Residents’ Association chairwoman Sue Bye said the group had been waiting to get the lines since August last year and she doesn’t know what the hold up is. But the issue could be solved today once the community board sign off on the city council’s recommendations. Community board chairwoman Karolin Potter (left) said she was sorry to the residents and community that it had taken so long to get action, but now the work would be done. “It will be good for the community to finally see the problem taken care of, it has taken a long time to get to this point,” she said. The price has also more than tripled since the city council said they would have the work done, going from $300 to $1000 to complete the work. Once the community board have approved of the recommendations the no parking lines will be installed within three to four weeks. It’s 1965 and The Everly Brothers are playing a gig in Wellington.
