Napier Velodrome Submissions – Closed
No doubt you will have seen the recent article in Hawkes Bay Today regarding Napier City Council's plans to build an indoor multi use Velodrome in Napier. We applaud Napier City Council's efforts to build this Velodrome and Ramblers is 150% behind this project. Hawke's Bay needs a Velodrome for everyone to use and to build on the success of our track cyclists on the world stage.
Napier City Council officially adopted their Consultation Document for its 2015-2025 Long Term Plan at a meeting on Friday 10 April 2015. The Consultation Document, and other related documents such as the Council's Infrastructure Strategy, can be viewed by clicking on the following link:
Interested parties (that's you) can make a submission online, until the closure of the submissions period at noon Wednesday 13 May 2015. While the RCC committee will be putting in a submission in on behalf of the club we still need every Rambler to make the effort to go online and make a positive submission under your name to make sure Napier City Council feel the weight of support behind the Velodrome proposal and to get Councillors to vote in favour of building this Velodrome. Go to the online submission form by clicking on the following link:
The on-line submission form is straight forward and should only take you three minutes to fill out.
You can add comments if you wish, but all you need to do is tick the box
There is no need to speak in support of your submission at the LTP meeting unless you want to.
If you prefer, you can print a written submission form and post for free (by Freepost) to Council. The details are on the form.
At the same time, please also support Napier City Council's proposal for further grow of the Napier Cycling Trails – all good infrastructure for cyclists in the Bay.
Napier City Council will consider submissions on 8 and 9 June 2015 and expects to formally adopt its final Long Term Plan on 30 June 2015.
It is time for Ramblers to stand up and demonstrate our support – and we can do this by submitting in support of the Velodrome. We need to show that the Velodrome is a popular venue and there is pent up demand just waiting to use it.
