Plans to bowl Hamilton's Victoria St buildings for giant park

21 November 2017

The Hamilton City Council is discussing plans to acquire and bowl a suite of buildings along Victoria St to extend the newly developed Victoria on the River urban park to Embassy Park beside the proposed theatre.

The council discussed the multimillion-dollar concept in a public excluded section at last Thursday's full council meeting - the same week Hamilton Mayor Andrew King announced a proposed 16.5 per cent rates increase to keep the city running without digging into debt.
