District revitalisation


About this portfolio

Part of the Rotorua 2030 journey is the need to reach some milestones, starting with what we want to achieve together by 2016 when the current three-year council term ends. A vibrant city heart attracting people and activity is a top priority of Rotorua 2030. The Inner city revitalisation portfolio aims to unlock the city centre’s potential so it becomes a place people will want to go – a place that welcomes everybody.

To make these achievements real, we need real change. Real change means all of us coming together, and working collectively for change.
