Few in the mapua/ruby bay/moutere community, and even fewer TDC councillors, are aware of the 2015/16 Mapua District Community Association upgrade proposal . I went to the Public Forum of the full Council on March 2 and told the story.
Click here for the full pdf of johns-TDC-submission-opt summarising what I presented orally in that public forum . This pdf contains a preliminary concept plan by Canopy, a concept plan developed by some members of the MDCA, letters of endorsement from TDC and from the Mapua District Business Association, and a remarkably well organised and prescient 2002 TDC pamphlet outlining the future of the Mapua Wharf area – as they viewed it at that time, before the major remediation efforts took place. .
