Western Bay of Plenty District Council will be holding a meeting of its Community Committee in Katikati on Thursday, 27 April at St. Pauls Presbyterian Church, 1 Mulgan Street.
The Community Committee is one of eight committees (in addition to full council, and joint committees) that provide governance for council services, operations, and the district vision and council mission.
Chaired by Waihi Beach/Katikati Ward Councillor Peter Mackay, the committee's role includes:
- Developing relationships in the community to enable Council to achieve local solutions to local problems
- Promoting positive change and sustainability for strong, healthy and safe communities
- Establishing a strategic focus to align economic, cultural, social and environmental development programmes with community outcomes as set out in the Long Term Plan.
The meeting will be largely comprised of short presentations from local community service providers whom have a focus, or contribute towards, youth development.
There will also be updates from council service contract providers (Waihi Beach Events and Promotions, Katch Katikati, Wild About NZ, Priority One, Katikati Community Resource Centre).
The meeting starts at 10am and is open to the public.
