Good news on the lights I got a call from the City first thing this morning and they are looking into the lights, saved me a phone call ringing them today, seriously great to see a proactive response.
Just leaves me to call the cops and see if they are aware of the anti-social issues after dark.
Lights out for Kings Square
For I don’t know how many times, I walked into a dark Kings Square tonight, no street lights on, the place in complete darkness.
The night activity was in full swing drunks and/or druggies screaming and yelling abuse, throwing things around.
It is more noticeable # worse when the place is darkness, the anti-social behaviour just ramps up. I spotted that both ranger and council security cars where around at Kings Sq about the same time. Not that it seemed to make any difference?
How is it that a simple issue like street lights, right in front of the councils front doors are such a challenge, its even worse now the library closes early, there is clearly no real interest in activation or even public safety for this area?
I also noticed today that the Council chambers upstairs are getting a new paint job, I guess that’s not a good sign when a council is repainting a building they are supposedly knocking down in the very near future, does that mean Kings Sq plan B is not on track? The frequently much promised start date of kings sq, “soon to be announced”, is well and truly overdue, maybe Brad is looking for lessees while he cycles around Europe on his rate pater funded junket?
Good news I hear that the Heirloom project has hit their sales mark and work could start in just days.
Even better they don’t need the rate payers $3million to kick it off?
