Carterton:2040 A sustainable district
Carterton Events Centre
Hurunui o Rangi Room
Thursday 14 June 7pm to 9pm
All welcome - koha appreciated.
Imagine Carterton in 2040 as a sustainable district. What would it look like? Jobs, food, medical care, transport, education, leisure, water, governance, utilities, clothing, earnings.
Join us for an interactive session in which YOU contribute your ideas as we draw a vision for Carterton in 2040.
Why are we doing this? If we know what our destination looks like and where it is then we can start setting the route now.
It's a blank canvas; what goes on it is up to you.This is a continuation of the "Living the Change - What's Next" series.
We'll bring the paper, pens, tea, coffee, and cake - you'll bring your imagination, ideas, and creativity.
Note: The meeting was going to be at Heart of Arts, the venue is now the Events Centre.
Community Led Development (CLD)
On the 12th April at about 6:30pm at the Carterton Events Centre, Resilient Carterton on behalf of the Carterton Community will sign a two-year agreement with the Department of Internal Affairs to partner with them under the Community Led Development Programme.
The Community Led Development Programme (CLDP) is a flexible programme in which the Government is supporting community-led development by providing support and advice but the work is led by the community. We have a two-year period (extendable to 5 years) in which we can launch projects and initiatives that benefit our community.
The key words are "community led". This means you. We will be engaging with the community to find out what it wants. Like our Facebook page, and sign up for our newsletter (it's in the left-hand column) to keep in touch with what's happening. Do you have a dream for our community? We'd like to hear from you.
