- Redeveloping the hospital: 97%
- Rebuilding public sports facilities: 91%
- Tourism facilities: 88%
- New central-city police station: 88%
- Town Hall (mostly a venue for the Symphony): 87%
- Central Library: 86%
- Avon River redevelopment: 81%
- Christchurch Art Gallery: 80% said reopening is "urgent" [no clue how this fits onto the scale]
- Cycle lanes: 78%
- Car parks: 77%
- Rebuilding the rugby stadium: 67%
- Downtown sports centre: 63%
- Commuter rail: 50%
The relative rankings are awfully interesting. Culture and the arts beat Big Sport; local community sports grounds matter more than the New Zealand Rugby Union. And commuter rail is rightly recognized as being way too expensive.
I don't know where the Arts Centre fits on the scale or if it wasn't on the survey.
It's awfully encouraging to see that most folks have their priorities in a pretty reasonable ordering.
Here, I think, are some of the survey respondents' comments about stadiums.
