Te Tahuhu o Te Rangi

The redevelopment of the Ōpōtiki Library is a long held community aspiration and has been consulted on in various Long Term and Annual Plans. The new complex, to be named Te Tāhuhu o Te Rangi, was scheduled for years one and two of the 2015-2025 LTP and has advanced to building consent stage although is heavily dependent on securing external funding. It was anticipated that the funding would have been secured before now but to date $1million has been raised or pledged representing almost a third of the project cost. Funding has been achieved through local fundraising and the support of regional funding agencies. An application to Lotteries will be lodged when closer to two thirds of funding is secured. Efforts to raise the 'middle million' are progressing. Building will commence when Council has raised the required money.
