BUILD­INGS, NAUGHTY...

The Tribune (NZ) - - OPINION | CONVERSATIONS -

Palmy is a won­der­ful city spolit by just a few ridicu­lous build­ings and struc­tures, all of which could be cor­rected with just a bit of thought­ful mod­i­fi­ca­tion and some paint.

The coun­cil build­ing is an em­bar­rass­ment to us along with the silly clock tower, both to­tally out of place with the city lay­out. The old Em­pire pub build­ing is one my favourites that is now sadly mis­used and fall­ing into dis­re­pair. If we want to at­tract visi­tors and have a nice place to live in, then we sim­ply need to look af­ter the nice things we have.

... AND NICE

I per­son­ally love the clock tower and the colour­ful light­ing that it brings into The Square. I think it makes the city cen­tre unique in this coun­try and a lovely place to walk at night for lo­cals and visi­tors alike. We moved here from the Bay of Plenty two years ago and love The Square. I also love that many of the his­toric build­ings are main­tained well. Tau­ranga trag­i­cally de­mol­ished al­most all of its her­itage/his­toric build­ings, so I really enjoy the va­ri­ety in Palmer­ston North. Heather Lewis
