It was basically an "in-house" function for the Council and the various contractors, plus associated organisations such as ECan. There was little hard information, however some tentative targets were announced for various initial activities. You will find this information in the "Rebuild News" newsletter (mentioned in the previous post) being delivered tomorrow.
The highlight was meeting Vern, a civil engineer with a house near Horseshoe Lake, who has spent quite a bit of time looking around and analysing physical aspects of the quake. He and his neighbours are in Zone C, so much of today's announcements will have little short or medium term relevance for them.
