pimp our main street

I’ve just been reading the Wairarapa Times Age online. Two very interesting articles this morning. The first is “A dash of TLC to transform Carterton CBD” the second is “4.1m revamp for Masterton CBD“. Sounds great!

So what is the South Wairarapa Council doing for it’s three towns?

I got an email yesterday about a meeting that’s going to happen tonight called “Featherston 2033” strategy. So far I’ve not seen very positive replies. Both I’ve seen in fact have been negative, one very negative.

I strongly suggest that if you care about this town and the community at all that you go along at 6:30 pm TONIGHT (Tuesday) at the Kiwi Hall in Featherston. Tell your friends, spread the word. Lets fill the hall and respond with your heart to what they have to say. Because from the “slides” I’ve seen its pretty crap and once again already decided on whats going to happen.

You can view the document here on the SWDC website.

Time for Action!

Edit: The meeting mentioned above has been cancelled. Apparently it was to be a closed meeting, but that wasn’t communicated clearly. Pity it would have been a very interesting public meeting if it was. Good news now is that we don’t have to go out in this horrible weather.
