Rangiora Town Centre Pop-up Display Drawing Hundreds

Over a thousand people are expected to visit the Rangiora Town Centre: Past and Future pop-up display in the Gables Arcade during the four weeks it is open.  The display gives a fascinating glimpse into the Town Centre’s past and showcases the Council’s plans for its future.

The display was developed by the Waimakariri District Council as part of public consultation on the draft Rangiora Town Centre Strategy. The Council is looking for feedback on the draft and are asking residents, “What do you think the Town Centre should look and feel like over the next 10 years and beyond?”

Since opening last Friday, hundreds have already visited, with the ‘Share an Idea’ board filling up fast with people’s ideas.   Organisers are encouraging people to also take a copy of the Consultation Document, so they can learn more and have the opportunity to make a formal submission.

People can also find out more and give their feedback online at waimakariri.govt.nz/rangiora

The historical part of the display was developed with the help of volunteers at the Rangiora Museum. It features dozens of historical photos and shows local businesses, parades, events and the changing face of High Street from the early 1900’s to the present day.

  • The Rangiora Town Centre: Past and Future pop-up display is located in the Gables Arcade on High Street and is open every day between 9am-4pm until Monday 9 March.
