Kia Ora Newtown
We've teamed up with the Newtown community to open the doors to Kia Ora Newtown.
This is a pilot project space where we can engage with the community and work closer with them and organisations on projects which directly affect their neighbourhood.
Kia Ora Newtown is located at 8 Constable Street, where Community Liaison Advisor Ray Tuffin is based. A space where members of the community can drop in to discuss Council services and other projects affecting the local area.
It will also be used as a workspace where officers can meet with contractors and partners to support facilitation of service delivery and planning within Newtown.
Ray will be the key connection between the Council and Newtown community members, organisations, businesses, iwi, Police, and contractors.
The name Kia Ora Newtown came from a collaborative effort with Newtown Residents Association, Newtown Community and Cultural Centre, and other members of the community. The logo will be designed by local schools – so watch this space for the competition winner.
In the meantime, pop by and say kia ora to Ray, and find out more about this exciting new project.
