Now Is the Time to
Have Your Say
With just two weeks to go until public consultation closes, it's now time to get in and have your say on the Cromwell Masterplan options.
That's the message from the Central Otago District Council.
"The Masterplan team is now in full swing promoting and discussing the options for each of the workstreams with the Cromwell community. There's some really good feedback coming through with plenty of people attending the drop-in sessions," says CODC CEO Sanchia Jacobs.
"Getting your feedback on the potential options for Cromwell's future is critical to the next steps in the Masterplan programme, so please take the time over the coming two weeks to complete the options survey and tell us what you think."
Feedback will close at noon on Monday 19 November. The survey can be completed online at www.codc.govt.nz/futurecromwell or print copies are available from the Cromwell Service Centre.
Completed surveys can be returned to the Cromwell Masterplan drop boxes at the Cromwell Service Centre or at the New World supermarket. A copy of the Let's Talk Options engagement document can also be downloaded from the website and hard copies are available from the Cromwell Service Centre or New World supermarket.
The Masterplan team will be at the Farmers Market this weekend (Sunday 4 November) from 9am-12pm.
Over the next two weeks the Options Shop at 48 The Mall will be open and staffed by the Masterplan team between 12 and 1pm Monday to Friday. The Council is also holding a Facebook online drop-in event on Thursday 8 November from 5-7pm where people can log on and have their questions answered by the Masterplan team.
"We really need to know what you think about the options because your feedback is a crucial factor in how the future of Cromwell will shape up. It's really important that you have your say now," Ms Jacobs said.
After all of the community feedback has been evaluated, the Masterplan team will meet with the Cromwell Community Board in December to workshop the preferred options for each of the three workstreams.
A draft Masterplan business case will then be presented to the Community Board in the new year. This will be shared with the community after it has been agreed by the Board. There will then be further opportunities for community feedback in the annual plan process. This is due to take place in April.
