This could be a very important month for Grandview’s heritage. As previously noted, the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan workshop on Heritage takes place on Thursday 17th January. This could be the only time we can discuss heritage on its own as part of the Plan process. If you have not yet registered, we strongly urge that you do so.
As a lead up to this Workshop, I will be making a short illustrated presentation to the GWAC meeting on Monday evening on “Heritage At Risk” which will concentrate on the fact that 51% of our current housing stock was built before 1930 — thus one of our slogans: Grandview is heritage.
GWAC meetings are open to all residents of Grandview and take place at The Learning Resource Centre under the Britannia Library (if you get lost, ask at the Britannia Info Centre on Napier). They start at 7:00pm and again we urge all local folks to attend and help steer our neighbourhood’s future.
Update: There was an excellent turnout at the GWAC meeting, with a lively and articulate crowd, many of whom are registered for next week’s Workshop. I am ever more confident that we will get our points across.
