Town Centre Revitalisation
What things do you love about the current town centre? What things do you think need to change? How can we best tell the 'story of Opotiki' through our architecture and streetscape? How can we make the town centre a bustling place where we want to spend time?
Council is currently asking for feedback on how we revitalise our town centre. We are out and about on the streets, speaking at service group meetings, chatting with individuals and groups who want to know more and holding formal and informal catch-ups to hear from as many people as possible.
The next step will be to use this feedback to inform a Structure Plan and Design Guidelines which will be available for further thoughts and feedback early in 2020.
Bridge cleaning underway!
Changes to rubbish and recycling collection in Opotiki township
Several areas in Op6tiki's urban collection area have received a flyer letting them know that their rubbish collection day has changed.
For all properties east of the Waioeka bridge, there is no change to rubbish and recycling pick up. However, if you have a property west of the Waioeka Bridge, you will have received a notification about the change of rubbish days to Wednesday. All rubbish and the correct recycling crates need to be out by 8am on Wednesdays.
