Wairarapa Dark Sky Reserve: Economic Plan wrap up event

November 11, 2019 November 2019 No Comments

There has been healthy interest in the creation of an accredited Wairarapa Dark Sky Reserve and the economic potential it has for the region. Wellington-based consultancy JMG has run a number of meetings and events to raise awareness of the project and to discover what this might mean for the Wairarapa economy.  This will feed into an economic plan to define the opportunities arising from the Reserve.

“Having met many people through community meetings and sessions with business associations and businesses, groups, iwi, councils and other interests, we have been privileged to get a greater insight into the plans and aspirations of the community” says JMG’s Managing Director, Bill McDonald.   

“Now we want to close the loop and share our findings with the people who have helped to shape them, and with anyone else interested in the project.”

JMG is hosting a public meeting at: Luna Estate, 133 Puruatanga Rd, Martinborough  6.30 – 8.00pm, Monday, 9 December, 2019 All are welcome, please email charlotte.harding@jmg.co.nz if you want to attend.
