    Count me in & keep me in the loop! I’m always keen to jump on a Bandwagon to improve Whangarei for the people!

    You can count me in! It’s exciting to have a wagon for change in Whangarei. I reckon together we can really make a difference.

  3. delighted (from out in the sticks of Maungakaramea) to help support any group(s) of people taking action to improve Whangarei city for the people and for the environment (cycleways, passenger rail to Auckland, suppression/ eradication of pest plants and feral pests that harm native ecosystems and vulnerable native species, sustainable organic primary production, seed saving, retention of the Outright Prohibition of Nuclear power and weapons in the Whangarei District Plan, our valuable GE free status, a clean harbour, pressuring rogue farmers to be in compliance with the Clean Streams Protocol.)

    it is in our interest to work constructively with local authorities
    we want District councils and a Regional Council who actually act in compliance with the Local Government Act 2002 and work in a participatory fashion with ratepayers and tangata whenua to achieve sound environmental and economic and public health outcomes. kia kaha

  4. count me in. Finally, tipping point for Whangarei!

    I am thinking about putting up my objection to the sale of the Recreational Ground or Park in Mair Street. Some parts were about privatisation, valuation if the sale proceeds and the consultation process but the part i want to show is what i said about the future use / requirements of this land.

    I await some feedback.

    Cheers, Anthony Best

    Regarding Anthony’s Mair Street comment above, I saw something in a local paper the other day stating that they had decided not to sell that land.

    Nga mihi aroha ki a koutou.

    Wonderful idea for a “Spring Festival” at Mander Park in September!

    Lest we forget the Mader Park Tree Massacre!

    My suggestion is that there is a “Speakers’ Forum” on the day (and on-going?!), particularly looking at issues around participatory democracy in Whangarei? Or lack of it?!

    My feeling, following the WDC’s lack of willingness to honestly engage with the people re Mander Park, is that Councillor Aaron Edwards needs at least 7 dynamic, honest, diverse, civic-minded, insightful, creative friends sitting with him around the council table!!

    How that can be achieved is the next exciting community-building question?!
    The conversation needs a home, so thank-you Wagon for creating a “vehicle”!

    I have deep aroha towards the fellow citizens who stood up to give the trees a voice at Mander Park. Kia ora koutou! Thank-you for letting me be a part of this diverse and caring group of citizens.
