Arts cen­tre on agenda

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua City coun­cil­lor John Burke raised the thorny is­sue of a per­form­ing arts cen­tre in Porirua at a Te Komiti meet­ing last week.

He said Porirua was the only New Zealand city of its size not to have such a fa­cil­ity.

Plans for a per­form­ing arts cen­tre died in 2011 when Whi­tireia Com­mu­nity Polytech­nic with­drew from the project.

Mr Burke asked for a re­view of the coun­cil’s de­ci­sion in 2012 to with­draw the $3 mil­lion al­lo­cated to­wards build­ing an arts cen­tre.

Porirua Mayor Nick Leggett said Aotea Col­lege would present to a full coun­cil meet­ing this week on a plan to re­de­velop its au­di­to­rium into an arts cen­tre.
