Amenities for Motueka's youth
Some people suggest that Motueka should have provision for activities for young people near or in the centre of town (wherever that is!), such as a place to shoot hoops and skateboard, or a youth drop-in centre, or music room.
Others say that if these "official" youth places were provided, youth wouldn't use them but rather go the places they select.
Yet others say the Recreation Centre and skate park complex does the job.
What do you think?
Personally I worry that by telling our kids to go elsewhere away from the town centre so as not to cause bother here is telling them that during their recreational time they are not appreciated as part of our community.
