CERA - Seeking community ideas for recovery

CERA is about to start a series of community meetings to get ideas from sector groups and communities. The intentions, in the words of Roger Sutton:
This month we’re going to be asking the community for your ideas to help shape the recovery strategy that will provide a comprehensive road map for greater Christchurch.
CERA’s role is to lead and coordinate the recovery effort from September and February’s earthquakes, and at the moment we’re developing a draft recovery strategy that underpins that work.
From Thursday, eight community workshops will be held where we’ll be asking for input across a range of areas affecting your lives and communities.
We’ve identified five key areas for the recovery strategy:
    Community wellbeing (housing, employment, education and health)
    Economy (investment, business and the labour market)
    Culture and heritage (arts, taonga, recreation, sport and heritage values)
    Built environment (features of the environment built by people)
    Natural environment (air, land, water, coasts and biodiversity)
Meetings will be held:

    Thursday 14         July7-9pm Addington Events Centre, Jack Hinton Drive
    Friday 15 July       7-9pm Nga Hau e Wha Marae, Pages Road
    Saturday 16 July   10am-midday Nga Hau e Wha Marae, Pages Road
