Napier City Council (NCC) made a splash today, confirming the details of the three aquatic options that will now go out for community feedback in advance of the 2018-28 Long Term Plan process.
At the Strategy and Infrastructure committee meeting held at the Taradale Town Hall this afternoon, Councillors approved the Options for Expansion business case and resolved to progress community engagement and consultation for three options.
“We’ll be asking our community to carefully consider all the three options and then decide on their preferred design via an online poll,” says Glenn Lucas, NCC’s Manager Sport and Recreation.
In addition there will be opportunities for members of the public to chat directly to the Council teams at a number of community events. The last of those will be a public open day on Saturday 3rd September at the Napier Aquatic Centre that will include displays, competitions and fun activities for families.
The three options to be consulted on are:
THE IVAN WILSON EXPANSION
THE 25-METRE NEW-BUILD
THE 50-METRE NEW-BUILD
At the meeting, Mayor Bill Dalton congratulated the Community Services team on their quick action in pulling forward their scheduled programme of work and presenting three excellent options following the unexpected closure of the Greendale Pool in late 2016. Councillor Graeme Taylor noted that as a council, NCC had come “a tremendously long way” in just seven months on this matter.
