Council wants community involved in CBD enhancement

Wairoa waterfront on Wairoa River

Wairoa District Council wants to introduce a CBD Enhancement Project to the community and involve you in how we can improve our town centre.

Councillors held a workshop at the end of last month with Council staff to look at the project.

Mayor Craig Little says that Council has heard over many years from many people that we need to look at improving our CBD. 

"We've heard about all the issues from closed shops, safety and security, attracting more diverse businesses into the CBD, to a drab looking CBD that just needs a bit of a spruce-up, and this is about responding to those issues," Mr Little said.

"We want to know what the community sees as the current issues/opportunities for our town centre, what the community’s vision is for the town centre and how much of the town centre should be covered by this project."

A community engagement meeting will be held on 28 FEBRUARY 2018, at the WAIROA WAR MEMORIAL HALL from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

The purpose of the community engagement session is to hear about the town centre project initiative and to take part in a workshop to explore issues, opportunities and the vision for the town centre.

We also want to find out who might be interested in being on a stakeholder engagement group and what representation is needed to see this project come to fruition.

Generally, these people will have a vested interest in the project and their involvement will generate better outcomes and a greater sense of ownership.

The stakeholder group will be engaged regularly by the project group from the early information gathering phase to the project design phase and implementation phases.

The Stakeholder Group will be actively "involved" in the process.
