Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

A spe­cial­ist lo­cal gov­ern­ment con­sul­tancy group has re­leased a re­port rec­om­mend­ing where a pro­posed multi-sport sta­dium should be con­structed in Mata­mata. The plan, headed by Mata­mata Fu­tures, is be­gin­ning to take shape and the re­port, re­leased to the Mata­mata Chron­i­cle, cer­tainly makes for in­ter­est­ing read­ing. The re­search re­port in­cluded con­sul­ta­tion with a num­ber of peo­ple and sport clubs from around the district to see what they wanted from a new fa­cil­ity. Over the next cou­ple of weeks, those be­hind the plan will be seek­ing sup­port or in­ter­est from lo­cal gov­ern­ment can­di­dates seek­ing elec­tion to the Mata­mataPi­ako District Coun­cil. A part­ner­ship with the coun­cil is cru­cial to get­ting this project over the line. Like­wise other or­gan­i­sa­tions such as Sport Waikato will be key to its suc­cess. Our story on the re­search re­port is on page 4 and there will be more sto­ries on the project in the com­ing weeks. We also look for­ward to your feed­back.
