Kulim Park up-grade versus Mauao Base-track repair

Adrian from Papamoa Beach

Are Tauranga Mount or Papamoa residents aware of the proposal, estimated to cost over $1 million of ratepayers' money, to upgrade and re-develop Kulim Park? This has been proposed by about thirty neighbours of the Park, who have approached TCC and behind closed doors and without proper consultation were able to have TCC offer the redevelopment. Luckily some people are against this waste of our ratepayers' money, and have forced the TCC to have further consultation. Much more urgent, and a project that will improve the lot of hundreds and thousands of not only locals, but national and international visitors, is the planned improvement of the Mauao Base Track, allowing the removal of the stairs which at the moment prevent many mothers with babies in prams, and elderly people less mobile at climbing steps, from being able to get around the Mount. The TCC maintains that there is a lack of finance to pay for the track to be built along the shoreline on the south side of Mauao, yet the same Council seems prepared to satisfy the needs of 30 already very affluent
Kulim Park neighbours. You feed back would be welcome on this.
