Katikati Library, Service Centre and Community Hub
Library features will include an open plan building, an outdoor reading room and a heritage centre, while the community hub features two large meeting spaces and two smaller meeting rooms, an art and exhibition space and kitchen area.
The build is being funded by Council and the Katikati Community Board through the Katikati Town Centre Fund, the Katikati Community Roading fund, the Recreation and Leisure Reserve, and a lottery grant, with the remainder being a Council loan. Increases in the project budget has been offset by savings from other Council projects. There won’t be any impact on rates.

Ongare Point Wastewater Scheme
Bay of Plenty Regional Council's Onsite Effluent Treatment Plan (OSET) required every property in Ongare Point to comply with the plan by December 2015.
Currently, the Ongare Point community uses septic tanks, which Regional Council water quality monitoring shows has led to contamination of Tauranga Harbour. Council has been investigating options to replace existing septic tanks at Ongare Point for the last 10 years. The community's feedback to date has told us they are, in principle, in favour of a wastewater scheme at Ongare Point.
