Ogilvy/PTR0386 Animal furniture By SCOTT MORGAN Progress is being made on a crittercal issue close to Albert-Eden- Roskill councillor Cathy Casey s heart. The former Auckland city councillor helped secure $50,000 for a piece of animal-shaped street furniture to be installed in the central city. But Dr Casey, who refers to the animals as critters, has been frus- trated by the lack of a suitable location until now. Council officers have suggested Myers Park on Upper Queen St as an appropriate location, with the Myers Park Kindergarten within walking distance. If we do get our critter at Myers Park it will become one of the things people want to see, and because there s a kindy there it s going to be terrific for kids. She favours a dog design, which could look like it s tied up to a seat. Dr Casey isn t con- cerned about the possible installation of a critter next to the White House strip club. I don t think they come out during the day, she says. Waitemata Local Board member Greg Moyle opposed Dr Casey s original idea of putting a critter in Aotea Square when he was on the previous council. However he says the Myers Park plan is a fair compromise. It s an unobtrusive spot and less likely to be stolen. He says too many artworks can create problems in busier places like Aotea Square. It s just another thing for people to fall over. If approved, the next step would be to com- mission an artist to design and construct the critter.
