Public talks on key projects



9 September 2019

Keen to know more about the Forest and Lakefront projects underway in Rotorua?

This month we’re holding a series of public talks about some of the key projects Council is working on.

In the coming weeks join us at Rotorua Library to learn more about the forest and lakefront projects.

The schedule of public talks is as follows:

Enriching the Forest Experience

When: Wednesday 11 September, 12.30 – 1.30pm AND Saturday 14 September, 10 – 11am

Where: Rotorua Library

This project includes the redevelopment of Long Mile Road, including improvements to the entrance from Tarawera Road, a new visitor centre, the creation of a forest and a city loop cycleway, a new forest hub and public carpark off Tarawera Road halfway between Long Mile Road and Lake Tikitapu, as well as the development of a cultural overlay for the forest which will tell the story of the land and its people.

Lakefront Revitalisation Project

When: Tuesday 17 September 12:30 – 1.30pm AND Sunday 22 September 10 – 11am.

Where: Rotorua Library

The Lakefront Revitalisation Project aims to develop the lakefront into an outstanding recreational area that will benefit locals, support tourism, and encourage private investment, which will in turn create new jobs and benefit Rotorua’s community.

The plan includes removing old buildings that are no longer safe or fit for purpose, enhancing the landscape so there are more places to play or sit and relax with friends and whanau, building an interactive sculpture park and playground, improving the lake edge and lake ecology, and constructing new car parks and public toilets. The plan also includes a building site where investors could establish restaurants, cafes, kiosks and ticketing offices so there are more options for entertainment and fun at the lakefront.
