Join the conversation about our 10-year plan – have we got it right?

In a nutshell the plan is focused on investing in the future, doing the mahi, and making things fairer along the way.

One of our key considerations is to keep costs and rates increase as low as possible by delaying or deferring some projects, while making sure everyone is paying a fair share to help ease the burden on general ratepayers.

It’s a balancing act between the investment our city needs today and in the future, and what we can afford in the face of increasing delivery costs, rising interest rates and the cost of living.

We know it’s a hard time to talk about the investment the city needs and we want to know if you think we have that balance right.

In particular, we’re keen for your thoughts on:

• Our infrastructure – should industrial ratepayers pay more?
• Key infrastructure for growth – who should pay the shortfall?
• Reducing traffic congestion – switch lanes and try a different solution?
• Development in the city – will incentives help us grow our city?
• Sports fields and boat ramps – should users pay to play?
• A community stadium – this decade, the next or never?
• Car parking buildings – sell up, or park the idea?

Congratulations Tauranga, winner of the Most Beautiful Large City (more than 100,000 residents) at the annual Keep New Zealand Beautiful Awards announced at Parliament House last night!

This is the first time the awards judges opened nominations to the public, and they received an overwhelming response from our community.

Here’s what the judges had to say:
“Tauranga has taken huge strides into investing in itself, and there’s a lot of passion about the local environment. The city now revolves much of it’s thinking around three main pillars: making it a vibrant and inclusive city, and a city which celebrates the environment. Beautification efforts and campaigns, increased cycleways and walkways, and cultural storytelling in conjunction with iwi are making the city even more desirable to live in. Tauranga also has a large community environmental fund and is championing trees and shade to be part of the city’s infrastructure, with tens of thousands of trees planted and over 11,000 hectares of wetlands restored.”

New warning signals to alert pedestrians and cyclists about fire trucks coming and going from the Tauranga Fire Station on Cameron Road are now active.

When the main fire station doors open fully, the solar-powered signals at each end of the station light up, flash and beep to warn people travelling from either end of the shared path. People should stop until the fire trucks have cleared the station entrance/exit. Existing flashing red signals on either side of the road already alert drivers to fire truck movement.
