Drop in to Memorial Park & Lake Te Koo Utu
Love it, hate it, want to change it? Waipā District Council wants to hear your feedback about two draft concept plans in Lake Te Koo Utu and Memorial Park, currently out for consultation.
With submissions closing on 13 July, Council is reminding residents to provide their feedback on the draft concept plans so community views can be heard and considered.
Community services manager, Sally Sheedy, said feedback had been steady with 210 submissions received to date. She encouraged residents to head along to two drop in sessions which will be held this weekend.
“We would love to see our community head along to a drop-in session this weekend, where they can learn more about what’s being proposed for these two special areas.
“Now is the time to tell us if we’ve got it right, or need to relook at some ideas, so we encourage you to check out the plan and let us know your thoughts.”
Council has erected signs throughout Memorial Park and Lake Te Koo Utu, with a main signboard outlining the whole concept. Smaller signs are also located throughout the walkways to highlight key proposals.
“We encourage you to take a stroll through these parks and see the ideas we’ve proposed. If you have any questions or wish to know more, staff will be located by the main storyboards to provide information,” Sheedy added.
The first draft concept plan drop-in session will be held at Lake Te Koo Utu, Cambridge on Saturday 27 June 1pm – 2pm and the second at Memorial Park, Te Awamutu on Sunday 28 June 1pm – 2pm. The draft plans are available online at www.waipadc.govt.nz/tekooutu and www.waipadc.govt.nz/memorialpark, along with online submission forms.
Residents can also pick up a hard copy of the plan and survey at council offices and libraries in Cambridge and Te Awamutu.
