New Library and Service Centre at the Local Board

There is a receptive climate in the new council for taking another look at the library/service centre project- the mayor’s liaison has said that they are willing to open up the issue to ensure that Waiheke gets the most appropriate solution for its community. It is not a matter of taking what someone is willing to give because we might not get anything at all.

Colin Beardon will be petitioning the local board to pursue a 6-month moratorium on the proposed project to enable the community to look at the possibilities and engage in substantive consultation.

Please try to attend the Local Board meeting this Monday, 17th Jan at 4pm to give support to this effort to secure a library that works for Waiheke.
