Be involved in the proposed museum and library!

Do you want to play a part in designing the experiences and spaces in the proposed museum and central library in Tauranga's city centre? It's not too late!

Workshop sessions are being held on Tuesday 23 May and Wednesday 24 May 2017 from 7am – 10am at 2 Devonport Road, so register now by emailing

We still have places available at our community sessions next week. Over 100 people have already attended and given us lots of valuable ideas that will help shape the type of experience these facilities could provide. The sessions have been fun and interactive with lots of positive feedback from those involved. 

Lynette Fisher attended the Tuesday workshop and said “It was fantastic to be involved and to be part of the process that has the potential to create much needed facilities for our city. I'm really excited to see something tangible come from this and to know that I have helped play a part in making it happen.”

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
