FOOD FOR THOUGHT

South Waikato News - - Conversations - Ju­lian Culvert, Toko­roa

I thought I bet­ter add to the dis­cus­sion that I know of no other small ru­ral town that gives the im­pres­sion of hav­ing mul­ti­ple lanes pre­sum­ably for over­tak­ing and pass­ing by the town.

It’s like say­ing ‘‘you’re at Toko­roa, chop down a gear and speed on by’’.

I think the town needs to meet the peo­ple if the peo­ple won’t meet the town.

It could be a good way for the coun­cil to make some money if they were able to sell some pre­mium SH1 road frontage land as part of a re­de­vel­op­ment plan.

New build­ings will be mod­ern build­ings, and hope­fully that will be at­trac­tive for peo­ple.

Drop in some traf­fic lights and ‘‘voila’’ they’ve stopped here. Food for thought any­way.

SWDC chief ex­ec­u­tive Craig Hobbs wants to stop Toko­roa from be­com­ing a ‘‘zom­bie town’’.
