Show your love for your local park by celebrating Parks Week with us! The festivities kick off this Saturday with movies at Waikanae Park. We've also got some drop-in sessions with elective members starting next week as part of our Representation Review.
20 February 2024 | Architect appointed for Waikanae Library replacement
Summer is beginning to wind down, but the fun isn't over yet! This weekend we've got two amazing events – the Xterra Wellington Offroad Festival and the Kāpiti Women's Triathlon and Duathlon. Plus we've appointed the architect for the new Waikanae Library replacement.
13 February 2024 | Share your love for Kāpiti this Valentine's Day
As we think about Valentine's Day this week, we've been reflecting on what what we love about Kāpiti – and we want to hear what you love, too. Read our story, and share your Kāpiti love letter with us, so we can do more of what you love.
Meetings are back on the agenda this week too, with the Paraparaumu and Paekākāriki community boards kicking things off, and Council's Risk and Assurance Committee this Thursday. Read on to find out everything that's going on.
6 February 2024 | Waitangi commemorations bring community together
Kia whakatōmuri te haere whakamua ('I walk backwards into the future with my eyes fixed on my past'). While today is Waitangi Day, locally we recognised this important date on Saturday, where it was great to see whānau reflecting on our district's shared history and learning about the tūpuna (ancestors) of the Whakarongotai Marae and whakapapa at their Waitangi Commemorations event.
23 January 2024 | Vision Kāpiti 'wishing tree' this week at Coastlands
What a scorcher of a weekend! We're so lucky on the Kāpiti Coast to have so many great spots to cool off, either at the beach, the river or at one of our swimming pools. Thanks to sound investment in the district's water infrastructure and water metering, we're also enjoying a summer free of water restrictions – ka pai!
16 January 2024 | Be fire wise
There's a bit going on across our region with increased fire risk and water restrictions, so it's a great time to check your emergency preparations, water supplies, and family plans. Check our website for what you need to know, find out your tsunami zone, and maybe even practice your tsunami hīkoi (evacuation walk) with your family! We've plenty of other stories for you too; have a great Wellington Anniversary weekend, stay safe, and enjoy that Kāpiti sunshine.
9 January 2024 | Keeping Kāpiti humming over the break
Ngā mihi o te tau hou, happy New Year! We hope you've had (or are having) a wonderful summer break; we're getting back into the swing of things here at Council, so we've a few things to update you on this week. We've tips for you on how you can stay safe when swimming at our beaches this summer, along with plenty of ideas for things to do with the kids and the whole whānau.
