Tauranga City Council is holding six open days around the city on its Long Term Plan (LTP) 2018-2028, to help community members with the issues raised for consultation and to answer any questions.
The first of these sessions will be held at Welcome Bay Community Hall on Thursday, 22 March from 4pm to 7pm.
Tauranga Mayor Greg Brownless said the open days were a chance for residents and ratepayers to talk to Elected Members and Council staff about the proposals in the LTP.
“We’re asking a lot of big questions in our LTP – questions that affect all residents and ratepayers across the city,” Mr Brownless said.
“We’re really keen to hear the community’s feedback, and these open days will help people to make well-informed submissions based on a sound understanding of our proposals.”
The Council is seeking feedback on:
- rating structure changes;
- finding the right level of investment in public transport and roading;
- waste and recycling options;
- museum and library proposals;
- elder housing provision;
- funding for the tourism sector; and
- tsunami alerts and resilience.
The consultation document outlines all these topics, as well as other items the Council is consulting on and other issues that may affect the plan over the next 10 years.
More information, including the consultation document, submission forms and a rates calculator, is on Council’s LTP webpage
Customers can also pick up a copy of the consultation document in the Customer Service Centre or any library, or request a copy by calling 07 577 7000.
