The next stage of Vogelmorn Precinct planning is around the corner! We’ll kick-off Phase 2 with a workshop on Sunday 26 March 3-5pm (with child-friendly activities provided), followed by a complimentary shared dinner.
In the following couple of months the community will work together on refining the draft design. We’ll make a mid-year submission to the Wellington City Council Annual Plan for undertaking smaller, short-term projects that require low/no investment, while the more ambitious parts will feed into the draft 2018 Long Term Plan later this year. You can check out this short video for an overview of Phase 1.
3 – 5pm ~ Information, discussion, grouping and collective visualisation of the concept design, facilitated by Cally O’Neill, Anne Cunningham and Sam Donald.
Simultaneous activity for children:
3 – 5pm ~ Kids council: workshop games with Barbarian Productions
5 – 6+pm ~ Shared meal provided, and social gathering
In 2014 the Kaka Project, a community-led visioning project, sought input and ideas from the wider Brooklyn community about how to best manage and organise its community facilities. The “Vogelmorn Precinct” was highlighted and agreed upon as a development opportunity.
In 2015 a steering group was formed to oversee a participatory design process for the Vogelmorn Precinct. The project was facilitated by a co-operative of local designers and specialists in community-led process, with financial assistance from Wellington City Council.
In 2016 the Council approved funding of $20,000 for the continuation of the participatory design process for the Vogelmorn Precinct.
This rich history of local efforts towards the strengthening of Brooklyn’s community resources is our starting point for the next phase of this exciting and unique project.
Thanks to everyone for the collective visioning and support that leads us here. Now comes time to bring the visioning to life!
The aim of Phase Two of Vogelmorn Precinct Planning is to recommend a preferred design option and submit a request for funding in spring 2017 to the next WCC Long-term Plan, whilst identifying short term projects that can be implemented in the coming year through community partnership with WCC.
