Meet­ing for rec cen­tre in Tuakau

Franklin County News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - JOHN BOYN­TON

Vol­un­teer group Tuakau Sum­mit has or­gan­ised a meet­ing on Wed­nes­day from 7pm at the Tuakau War Memo­rial Hall, to ask Tuakau res­i­dents if they think the com­mu­nity needs a new gym and recre­ational fa­cil­ity.

Awaroa ki Tuakau Ward coun­cil­lor Jac­qui Church said peo­ple in the com­mu­nity she had spo­ken with were pos­i­tive about the idea of a new fa­cil­ity.

‘‘They do feel there’s a need for and it’s try­ing to get them in a room to­gether.

She said the meet­ing would form the be­gin­ning of dis­cus­sions around what the fa­cil­ity would look like, how it would op­er­ate and its fea­si­bil­ity.

‘‘Ev­ery­one has their own ideas, it’s get­ting those ideas out.’’

Church said her main goal was to form a steer­ing com­mit­tee and get the project off the ground.

‘‘I think, we as a col­lec­tive need to go for­ward.’’

The lack of sport­ing fa­cil­i­ties in Tuakau also high­lighted prob­lem’s around Tuakau’s lack of green-space, Church said.

Parks, re­serves, cy­cle­ways and path­ways could all be en­hanced, she said.
