So, its inevitable. I guess I’ve not written for a while because the MenzShed is going ahead and the “Town Square” is going ahead in spite of many people not wanting it to happen. It is set in stone and no amount of talking or letter writing or appealing to the Minister will stop it.
We will end up with an unusable space that will be a graffiti magnet and be un friendly to locals and visitors alike.
We will have an empty lot because the Mayor doesn’t understand what economic development means and what is most needed in Featherston is someone who knows what economic development means and how to achieve it, or to at least know the right people to get to achieve it.
So what’s next?
Best to concentrate on the things we can change rather than whinge about the things we cannot. Perhaps one day we can drive a digger through the “town square” and start afresh…
