About 60 people attended the AGM this afternoon (minutes to come later).
A few highlights, before the official draft Minutes are available:
- We plan a hard rubbish collection for Easter 2020.
- Climate Change is now very much at the centre of Horowhenua District Council decision making.
- There was spirited discussion about the problems with the recycling station — the noise and rubbish associated with it. Richard Walker is willing to have it sited on his land near the 50 K sign, if that’s logistically possible.
- Horowhenua population is growing more and faster than expected. At current growth rates today’s 35,000 people could grow to 40,000 by June 2028 and 50,000 by June 2038. We will need to be active in any consultations to preserve our community.
