Residents are being encouraged to let Rotorua District Council (RDC) know how important their community halls are to them and how they are best utilised at a series of community meetings being held around the district next month.
The council-managed community halls are located at Broadlands, Kaharoa, Mamaku, Ngakuru, Ngongotaha, Okareka, Reporoa, Rerewhakaaitu and Waikite.
RDC Community Policy & Resources manager Ann Esler says the council is seeking input from communities, including schools and other regular users of the halls, around what RDC provides for the halls.
“These halls are a focal point for social events, sports and other activities undertaken by people in rural communities, and the council is responsible for the buildings’ safety, exterior maintenance, and other costs.
“The various meetings are an opportunity for rural residents to let the council know what they want for the future of their community halls.”
Information gathered from people attending the meetings will be presented in a report to the council’s Corporate & Customer Services Committee in mid-September.
