The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS -

Our mayor Grant Smith is ex­cited about where our city is at and where it’s go­ing - rightly so.

Smith has de­liv­ered his State of the City ad­dress over the past week and has done a re­ally good job of shin­ing the light on our suc­cesses.

We have a grow­ing pop­u­la­tion, a sup­port­ive and mul­ti­cul­tural com­mu­nity and our econ­omy is in a good place.

There’s a mas­sive in­vest­ment com­ing for our de­fence force bases, the Massey food sci­ence cen­tre, the devel­op­ment of roads and bridges, city up­grades and a new in­ter­na­tional hockey turf.

Let’s hope we, as a city and com­mu­nity, re­ally do re­alise our po­ten­tial over the com­ing years.

Per­son­ally, I’m most ex­cited about the new pedes­trian and cy­cle bridge across the Manawatu River, which will be a boon for those liv­ing in Lin­ton and the Massey area, as well as fit­ness buffs.

What are you most ex­cited about?
