Long-term plan public meeting in the Mount

The meeting is being held at the Mount Sports Club this afternoon.

Members of the public are being invited to learn more about the long-term plan for Tauranga at a public event in Mount Maunganui.

A drop-in session is being held at the Mount Sports Club from 4pm to 7pm today.

It is the second of four drop-in sessions to be held around the city.

Several informal pop-up events have also been scheduled, with the next to be held on Saturday morning at Fergusson Park.

The Long-term Plan 2021-31 is one of the most important plans in the history of Tauranga, and the city’s commissioners are keen for the public to be involved as much as possible, says a statement from Tauranga City Council.

The plan proposes investing $4.57 billion in key priority areas – including transport, community spaces, the city centre, and land for homes and businesses.

Today’s session will provide an opportunity to ask council staff about the plan and the process for making submissions.

Some of the city’s commissioners will also drop by to chat with people.

“These investments are all about making Tauranga a great city now and for the future,” says Commission Chair Anne Tolley.

“We’ve already received a tremendous amount of feedback from our community, and we want to hear from as many people as possible.

“Everyone’s voice deserves to be heard – and we are listening.”
