We came to Ngaruawahia in August 2018 and heard what was important to you. You told us what you wanted to see in your community in the future. We heard lots of great ideas and a number of these initiatives can be found below.
We came back to you in 2019 to hear what your top three priorities are for Ngaruawahia.
The top priority initiatives for Ngaruawahia include:
- Building a strong identity for the town.
- Undertaking strategic conversations around
-owned land and halls for re-invigoration
of community assets.
- Working with relevant entities to support the
strategy for youth initiatives.
- Undertaking initiatives to ensure tidy
commercial and industrial street frontages.
- Providing longer distance walking and cycling
connections to Te Otamanui, Glen Massey, the
eastern side of the Waikato River to Horotiu,
We plan to visit again in June/July 2020 to discuss who should lead each of these initiatives for Ngaruawahia. Attend this meeting to tell us what you think.
