ALMOST 400 people have had their say on the proposed extra investment in the city block
project, with one day left to make a submission.

Invercargill City Council (ICC) is asking the community about whether it should invest an  additional $16 million and repurpose $5 million originally allowed for design changes, for a total investment of $46 million in the city block project.

ICC strategy and policy manager Rhiannon Suter said she was excited by the response so far.

‘‘This is an important decision for the future of the city, so make sure you take the opportunity to share your views,’’ Ms Suter said.

Members of the public had taken to social media to ask questions about the proposal.

A video of elected members answering many of those questions was on the Extra Money for City Block Facebook page, she said.

‘‘We know lots of people will have questions they want answers to, so that they can make a
fully informed submission. We encourage you to check the video out and the Q&A page on the website.’’

Ms Suter encouraged people to have their say before submissions closed tomorrow.

‘‘Making a submission is really easy. You can do it online, via the post, or phoning 03 211 1777.’’
