The pond could cost 3 million on front page of today's Mail.Green Meadows was a similar original estimate and ended up over double.Can we take the gamble? For that amount of money a smaller purpose built facility for the modellers perhaps could be built at Saxtons or where ever and the original pond left as it is.Fill it with carp and other algae and weed eating fish which are allowed in NZ .Could be quite an attraction for taking kids fishing and also another drawcard for Tahuna . Birds and other wildlife would probably access the area once a food source was available.Thinking out loud .. what do think Mr NCC..
The estimated cost for concreting the base of the Modellers Pond has gone up again - this time to over $3.5 million.
The plan isn't set in stone, but was the preferred option of the previous council when it was costed at $2.37m. What do you think?
