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
