It’s official, the Featherston Zen Garden aka the Town Circle will be officially opened by Her Worship the Mayor on Saturday 1 October at 7:30 am.
Indeed, you are not going blind, I’ve not typed it wrong, 7:30 am start. For a blessing and a speech!
Apparently it’s to stop electioneering, but really I think it’s to limit the heckers on what must be the worst run project I’ve ever seen. A consultation process run so badly that so many people didn’t even bother to respond as the document was “written as a done deal”. No follow up consultation when things had to change due to budget constraints. AND it went over budget anyway!
If I’d run a project like this when I was working I would have been fired!
So the opening will be a nice little opportunity for Her Worship the Mayor in her electioneering campaign as she contests the Regional Council seat. Pity it won’t make a lick of difference.
I suggest that if you think the space could have been used in a better way you come along and heckle. Then we can go for coffee.
