Council announces next phase of community input
By: Gurbir Singh
Planning the development of an attractive and sustainable community in north Hamilton will re-ignite again shortly with the Council seeking more ideas from the north-eastern community about facilities for their new Rototuna Village.
The next phase of engagement involves getting input from the Rototuna community on design elements such as:
- the library and community hub
- the village square
- an urban play area
- active recreation spaces
- Main Street
- public toilet
- tree planting
- integrated public artwork eg – for lighting, paving treatments, water feature.
The proposed next phase of community input for the process is November to February, with final sign off in July 2020.
It may be recalled Hamilton’s 2018-28 10-Year Plan budgeted $2B for capital investment in the following decade. This investment saw Council commit to building the new Rototuna Village, with construction set to start in mid-2020.
