Following on from public meeting on 21 AugustSeptember 3, 2007 at 5:20 am | Posted in Events | Leave a comment
My apologies for the delay in describing the public meeting held on 21 August – other commitment and computer problems have got in the way. A summary of the meeting and its outcomes will be posted by Wednesday 12 September.
In the meantime here are two charts that indicate which themes the meeting participants felt strongly about. More detailed explanation coming up. Click on the thumbnail images to view.
The presentations and some video from the meeting will also be added when computer problems are resolved – within the next week or two.
Follow up meeting proposed for 16 September: 4pm at 40 Wallace St.
A further meeting of Mt Cook locals and “friends” is proposed for Sunday, 16 of September, to establish a formal residents group or some regular process for Mt Cook people to have their say. The time of the meeting is 4pm and the venue: 40 Wallace Street, Mt Cook. If you haven’t received information about this meeting that means for some reason you are not on our mailing list. To “sign up” email: email@example.com
Relevant upcoming events
In the meantime, I refer you to an thoughtful post on Wellurban – Mt Cook Summit, which, among other things, talks about the lack of a coherent sense of Mt Cook, and suggests some ways in which the neighbourhood might develop a more recognisable centre and identity. Also check out A Big Competition leading up to IntensCity Week. These events respectively assess movements, associated infrastructure and urban environment between Wellington Airport and City, and review and propose ideas for the city’s physical future through to 2040. Both provide a vital opportunity to promote the “characterful” development of Mt Cook, as the Basin Reserve, Adelaide Rd, State Highway 1/Buckle Street and Memorial Park will be featured in the deliberations.
