Reserve naming survey - Te Anau
The Te Anau Community Board was approached in 2018 by a member of the community asking to name the reserve in the middle of Fergus Square (the road) Cardno Reserve after former Southland District Mayor Frana Cardno, who lived on the street until her death. The member of the public had talked to others in the community and residents of Fergus Square and had their support.
Staff were asked to investigate this and a report went to the board mid 2018 which confirmed the reserve was unnamed. The board decided to name the reserve Cardno Reserve to honour Mrs Cardno and staff began the work.
The sign Cardno Reserve was put up earlier this year and since then the board and Council have received feedback that some members of the public do not think this is appropriate as many of the early residents developed the reserve themselves and it should not be named after someone else.
The board wants to know what all residents think about this and is asking you to fill out this form to let us know your thoughts.
