  • Why do you have to have so much money spent on putting it all in a useless language of benefit to the tiny % of New Zealand's population who can read it? This is racism gone wild, and we all have to pay for it!.

    Syrema asked over 1 year ago

    Thanks for the question. Rotorua Lakes Council has a partnership with Te Arawa as co-governance partners. As a part of the partnership we have made a commitment to being a bilingual district. Becoming bilingual brings to life our partnership with the Te Tatau board. The Long Term Plan being in produced in Te Reo is an example of this in action. Thanks.

  • Councils Major Project page: what is the Energy Events Centre replacements of 7,022,426 covering? this is a new build and 7 milion is an awful lot of money. Also, the Performing Arts Centre and replacements 11,300,000. Perhaps it is a better idea to demolish and build a whole new building. Its old, tired and too small. It could also be deferred as it is not a priority. And could be put towards other projects.

    Nancy asked over 1 year ago

    Thanks for the question. The EEC Replacements if for new cladding to the building. The Performing Arts Centre and replacements is the total project cost. Council is committed to the earthquake strengthening component of $4.5 million. The balance we are seeking external funding - approx 5.25 million has been secured to date. Thanks

  • Regarding the Kuriao Park and Lakefront developments, how interested would the council be in building New Zealand's first dedicated, public, outdoor parkour facility? I'm the parkour coach at MIGS gym, and many of my students and the Rotorua parkour community are finding it very hard to get any upward progression in our sport. We're very spread out and have no central hub to train at, and all of the best spots are on private property or are otherwise inaccessible. The few areas that are publicly accessible (all skate parks, Kuriao Park, Volcanic Playground, Te Aka Mauri) are subpar and still require us to get into needless trouble in order to properly train. I have a direct line of contact to the CEO of our sport's national governing body, and I can pass on a great number of details and design specifications to aid the council in its decision. We're running out of options very quickly, and very soon the gym will become wholly inadequate to train at without new equipment and our own space. We're growing too fast for current infrastructure to maintain.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your question.

    Parkour has come up in the Sport & Rec strategy development discussions but it is not something that has been identified (to date) as a capital project that we have budgeted for. If you'd like to discuss this further then feel free to email us at: letstalk@rotorualc.nz

    Thanks

  • What is being done to upgrade the Crematorium? This building is in need of an upgrade, for a building that is used nearly every day of the year it is in a dreary and tired condition. With visiting mourners from other cities/towns it leaves alot to be desired. The toilets are basic and right in the front of the foyer. The chimney is looking in a sorry sight. There are cobwebs visible in the chapel and the requests from myself (Celebrant) and Funeral Directors saw only the reachable webs being removed. They had been visible for quite some time. A large portico over the front to cover the hearse from inclement and hot weather would be a godsend and modernise the building and shifting the toilets or covering them somehow would make the entrance more attractive. As I have said hundreds/ thousands of people go to this building over the course of a year and not much has been done to improve the look, when is this going to be addressed? Perhaps you need to visit this site and see what can be done to upgrade.

    jude4 asked over 1 year ago

    Thanks for the question. There is a programme for the Cremator replacement that will also allow some work to be done on improving the building. This is provisioned for within the 'Cemetery Services' and the 'Asset Replacement' lines relating to 'Sport, Recreation and Environment'. These are itemised on page 61 in the Long Term Plan Consultation Document. Thanks
