tem 15 (pg 47) on the Agenda for the Waitakere Ranges Local Board meeting tomorrow night, is a request for funding approval of $40,000 for a project that will assist with implementing Local Area Plan policies and actions relating to the enhancement of the village of Oratia’s historical and cultural identity.
The item recommendation is for approval of expenditure of $40,000 in the current financial year towards:
- documenting Oratia’s historical and cultural heritage which would happen primarily between January to March 2013 ;
- and, designing improvements to enhance Oratia’s public spaces that celebrate its unique heritage and cultural identity. This would include developing landscape design concepts for the village’s entry points, the Domain, road verges and the interface with non-residential activities. This work would be conducted principally from March to June 2013.
Fingers crossed. This would be a wonderful Christmas for our community. Get on facebook and give them a like or a comment to let them know Oratia’s keen.
