Mosgiel residents make plea for pool
By Vaughan Elder
Mosgiel residents made an impassioned call for Dunedin City councillors to give a multimillion-dollar aquatic facility the “green light” sooner rather than later. In recognition of the level of interest in a $15 million four-pool aquatic facility the council held part of yesterday’s long-term plan hearings at Mosgiel’s Salvation Army Hall.

By December [2014] we will have completed a thorough feasibility study, ready for presentation to Council. The feasibility study for a new aquatic complex on the Taieri is now complete and has been lodged with Council.

Shaun Pont [arrowinternational.co.nz]There has been an amazing amount of work done in a short amount of time, and we want to acknowledge the stellar effort by Shaun Pont of the Logic Group.

In presenting this report, the Taieri Community Facilities Trust (Trust) is conscious of the Dunedin City Council’s twin objectives of city growth and strong fiscal management. It recognises that growth is both economic and social, and that the two are correlated. If Dunedin is to grow then it needs investment both in economic development and in facilities that enhance the city’s quality of life. A city is defined by its people. So as a city, if we are to grow and prosper then the community must stand beside Council. Only by working together can we both grow as a city and reach the Council goals for financial stewardship.

Community-based organisations are key to solving some of the most difficult neighbourhood issues. It is therefore important from the outset to understand that a swimming pool is not just about a place but about our people. Pools help to bind communities together and meet the challenges of building social inclusion within a community. They help to address the health issues within a community as we endeavour to meet national obesity and activity targets. A swimming pool is more than just somewhere to swim. It is a meeting place and heart for the community and a conduit for many activities.

    How much of the original $30,000 grant from the DCC to the pool trust has Mr Pont got his hands on so far? Did he get a bonus for presenting the trust’s begging bowl for $750,000 at the council’s long term plan hearing, and if successful, how much will he receive of the $750,000 to continue his association with the trust?

  4. Jacob

    If Mr Pont is based in Christchurch. Who paid his expenses to come to Mosgiel and present the pool trust’s request for $750,000.
    Did the Pool trust not have anybody capable of doing the presentation, or do they have no accountability for the $30,000 council grant. Easy come Easy go.

  5. Lyndon Weggery

    It really worries me that the Mayor and supporting Councillors seem hell bent on being captured by the Mosgiel Pool pressure group and will end up making the same mistake as their predecessors over the Stadium.

  6. pool pal

    It would appear that there could be certain pecuniary interests among pool trust members and their associates that have not been declared. Mums the word, or could it be brother and sister.
