Plan to have your say
Residents from Cannons Creek and Waitangirua are invited to Cannons Creek Pool this weekend to have their voices heard on the city’s 10-year plan.
Porirua City Council is holding its eastern ward open day for the draft long-term plan at the pool on April 14, from 11am to 1pm.
Eastern Ward councillor Fa’amatuainu Wayne Poutoa has run a number of street parties with residents over the years.
He says the relationships the neighbours have built from street barbecues are now being extended to the council and the work it does.
‘‘I hope many people from the eastern ward come along to this open day. It will include a sausage sizzle and pool games for the kids so the parents can come and view information about the council and the plan.
‘‘We want to hear what people have to say about what we are planning for Porirua over the next decade.’’
The public can come any time between 11am and 1pm, look at some display material about the draft plan and talk informally with Porirua mayor Nick Leggett and councillors.
