The Wiri Business Association will seek Manurewa Local Board approval on Thursday to expand its business improvement district to include the wider Wiri industrial area. The association is also seeking $40,000 of funding over 2 years to support its $57,900 expansion campaign.
The association said the boundary expansion would increase the targeted rate it collects from $199,650/year (excluding gst) to $450,000. It said the added value for business & property owners in the proposed expansion area would include specialist crime prevention support, business support, events, networking & advocacy.
The present business improvement district is bound by Druces Rd, Kerrs Rd, Ash Rd, Lambie Drive & State Highway 20 (coloured pink on the map; the proposed expansion is coloured blue).
Business improvement district partnership advisor Jeremy Pellow says in his report to the board the proposed new boundary would run close to proposed expansion by the Manukau Central Business Association, and they were working to resolve any overlaps.
