This is a great idea. Cycling around town on the roads in busy traffic is nightmarish.
Haven't been that way for years, so can't comment.
Ditto, the above
I've never been there, or lived in that neighbourhood, so can't offer any informed opinion, sorry.
Only $100,000? - seems a bit miserly!
Really? - when parking charges are widely touted as being the reason for people avoiding CBD's, this doesn't look like a very sensible pro-community initiative. Smacks of petty money-grubbing to me.
It sounds like a good idea in principle, though it depends on where it's situated. If it's going to get built anyway, due to the contributions of other groups, may as well go for the lesser amount and save 2 mill.
I don't know enough about the short-comings of the current jetty and it's frequency of usage to formulate a strong opinion on this one, so I've gone for the softer option.
I've never been to Waterworld, but I pass by there fairly frequently, and it's clearly a popular facility. $26 million seems a bit over the top though (no pun intended)
I suspect you're over-simplifying this issue by implying that if parking isn't charged for, HCC will not be able do improve the visitor access to the Gardens. This surely isn't the case. Either way, I don't think charging for parking is a sensible idea. It's a blunt counter-productive way of raising funds that will disadvantage all kinds of current Gardens visitors, especially those who pop in frequently for short visits.
I whole-heartedly support the initiative to improve the gullies of Hamilton, especially if it involves cleaning-up the waterways, weed control and planting of native species. However I don't really mind which way the spending is skewed, so long as it does happen.
We’re proposing to balance our books in 2024/25 and reset our debt-to-revenue ratio to 300% for 2021/22 then decreasing by 5% each year until 2025/26 where we will remain at 280% from 2026/27 to 2030/31. Rates are proposed to increase by an average of 8.9% in 2021/22 and 4.9% annually until 2030/31.
Sorry, I don't know enough about this subject to give an intelligent considered response.
We have lots of other projects included in our Long-Term Plan. We want to hear you views on any of them.
Thanks for the invitation, but I'm typed-out now.
