My Jel­li­coe Street Te Puke rec­om­men­da­tions to Western Bay of Plenty District Coun­cil:

1. Cover Te Puke me­dian strip with flow­ers like marigold, cal­en­dula and what­ever else that Mount Maun­ganui’s main street gar­dens are reg­u­larly planted with that make that town so at­trac­tive to vis­i­tors and lo­cals with beau­ti­ful flow­ers

2. Re­place me­dian strip ex­otic trees with more puriris that have long iden­ti­fied Te Puke

3. Re­place carpark re­strict­ing, glyphosate main­tained, low vis­ual im­pact Jel­li­coe St gar­dens with small raised half-round nat­u­rally grown flower gar­dens against the foot­path like Mount Maun­ganui has that would not re­move carparks from Te Puke

4. Brick-tile Jel­li­coe St foot­paths be­tween three round­abouts in the cen­tre of town like Palmer Place has

5. Re­move the at­tempted horse trough replica eyesore from the cen­tre of town

6. In­stall se­cu­rity cam­eras to re­duce mid­day drunks and vi­o­lent episodes.

Please sup­port my rec­om­men­da­tions to coun­cil.

Te Puke on the bak­ery wall is amaz­ing . . . but the sheds (walls) be­side it look aw­ful. I’m not sure whose re­spon­si­bil­ity they are, but even a false wall to hide th­ese build­ings would be great.

3. And lastly, a huge bou­quet to Gael Blaymires and her sea of daf­fodils. She must have worked so hard to get that dis­play. It is truly won­der­ful. Thank you, Gael. D JOBLIN
