Theatre for Hamilton CBD on track
The presentation also brought up issues that Momentum is tackling with parking, plans for drop off areas and after hours use of some of the CBD’S private carparks.
As part of its 10-year plan, Hamilton City Council committed to give $25 million towards building a regional theatre, with a further $5 million coming from the wider Waikato region.
The 27 per cent of probable funding will come from donors, gaming, naming rights, lotteries and central Government’s Provincial Growth and Regional Culture and Heritage Funds.
