Clive announced that the Agreement between DIA and the Karamea community has now been finalised and signed by KCI reps (Pete M and Raramai). Dyan will arrange for DIA signing and refer a copy back to KCI. The agreement will be effective for 5 years from the date of this meeting.
Peter M moved that KCI become a member of Buller REAP – this was seconded by Clive and carried.
The CLDP future direction community meeting followed this Cttee meeting and was facilitated by Pete Howard. There will be a separate report on this. The good turnout (75 people) at the Hui held on 12 August was noted.

4. Previous minutes
These were reviewed – MOU with DOC is still required for maintenance of the Kohaihai Zig Zag (Lookout?) track. Peter M will follow up on this.
Clive moved that the previous minutes be accepted and this was confirmed.

5. Community building (RSA) improvement update
Clive is still in discussion with Nicole (Architect) re drawing costs which will be a significant portion of the $93000.00 budget. Her estimate including all cost including consent fees is 11,450 + GST. There was discussion about the need to do more fundraising (e.g. The Lotteries Commission) and it was agreed that the project should proceed. Paul moved that the project go ahead – this was seconded by Brian J and carried.

6. AGM date/agenda/nominations
Agreed that the date for the AGM be Monday 16 October. All cttee members present indicated their willingness to continue serving on the Cttee but Paul while still continuing to support the work of the Cttee indicated that he would be unable to continue to act as Secretary. Peter M acknowledged the contribution that Paul and others on the Cttee had made.
