Love Museums? Love Libraries?

Are you willing to help us design a future museum and the central library for the city centre? Register now for a co-design workshop! (426kb pdf).

There are lots of other ways that you can have your say on the development of cultural facilities in our city centre!  We need to know what you think a future museum, central library and performance venue will do for you, and what you think it will do for the city.

Why are we doing this?

Last year more than 2000 people told us what is important to them in creating a civic heart for Tauranga.  You told us that you want a vibrant, active and safe city centre and believe that things like a museum, library and performance venue will all help create this.  Tauranga City Council has listened and in July 2016 proposed to put funding towards feasibility studies or business cases for each facility.  From 578 submissions received, over 60% of people supported this work being done which will determine if we, as a community, should consider future investment in a museum, library and performance venue.

The business cases are now under way and we need to understand what your expectations are for development of these facilities.  It’s important for the city and future generations that you have your say!
