Kāpiti Coast District Council have invited Kapiti Grey Power members, together with other organizations, to a presentation and Q & A session run by the Project Manager about a visitor centre for Kapiti Island. This has been discussed for many years. After completing a feasibility study with stakeholders last year, Council has now submitted an application for funding with the Provincial Growth Fund. If successful, Council still need to approve the business case and its share of the funding.
Update: This meeting has been cancelled by KCDC
Venue: Pohutukawa Room, Te Newhanga Kāpiti Community Centre, 15a Ngahina Street, Paraparaumu (near the Aquatic Centre) Date: Friday 24 July 2020 1-2 pm.
Christopher Ruthe comments: “KCDC is sending in a spin doctor. Apparently the PGF is concerned about the level of Community support, so they are holding this meeting to say they have got it from Grey Power. People need to go and question KCDC.”
