Gi­ga­town Wanaka signs

Gi­ga­town Wanaka sup­port­ers have ap­proached the Wanaka Com­mu­nity Board to place Gi­ga­town sig­nage next to the Wanaka en­trance signs. The signs would be tem­po­rary and would be re­moved at the end of the com­pe­ti­tion. A re­source con­sent was not needed for the signs as they would be placed on a road re­serve. The board agreed to sup­port the project but it would be sub­ject to fi­nal ap­proval by New Zealand Trans­port Agency and Queen­stown Lakes Dis­trict Coun­cil’s in­fra­struc­ture and as­sets gen­eral man­ager Erik Barnes.

Board ‘‘Drop-in’’ Ses­sions

Wanaka Com­mu­nity Board chair­woman Rachel Brown will start monthly drop-in ses­sions where mem­bers of the pub­lic can meet with her and raise any coun­cil-re­lated is­sues or con­cerns with­out mak­ing an ap­point­ment. The meet­ings would take place on the first Wed­nes­day of ev­ery month at the Wanaka Ser­vice Cen­tre be­tween 11am and 1pm with the first tak­ing place on Fe­bru­ary 5.

Al­co­hol Group pro­posal

The Wanaka Com­mu­nity Board held a workshop yes­ter­day on the Wanaka Al­co­hol Group pro­posal af­ter its meet­ing. The group ap­proached the board in De­cem­ber ask­ing for a work­ing party to be formed to re­duce al­co­hol harm in the area. Board chair­woman Rachel Brown asked board mem­bers to have the workshop with Queen­stown Lakes Dis­trict Coun­cil reg­u­la­tory man­ager Lee Web­ster rather than pre­sent­ing a for­mal re­port.
