In order to decide which proposals to engage with the community, options for the Rototuna Community Village were initially assessed based on the following criteria:
- Community need – how does the option align with Hamilton's vision and strategies?
- Viability – how financially viable is the option (from a capital cost and an ongoing operating cost perspective)?
- Consenting – is the option consented, or consentable in the next three years?
- Identity – will it lend itself to achieving a special and unique identity for the
- Community living – will it provide for open spaces and safe and equitable access for all?
- Future proof – is there the ability for future expansion as the area becomes more populated?
- Connected – does it create transport solutions?
The project team reviewed five options using these criteria. The two proposals that met the most criteria are Rototuna A (Option 4) and Rototuna B (Option 5).
The following table summarises each option's ranking against the criteria.
