Council shares its plans to help realise the benefits of the expressways
Kāpiti Coast District Council is inviting the community to visit their stand in Coastlands Mall next week to find out more about its work to make the most of the opportunities the expressways bring to the district.
Group Manager Strategy and Planning Sarah Stevenson says the Mackays to Peka Peka Expressway has changed the face of Kāpiti and Council has a programme of work underway that aims to take advantage of the opportunities it provides.
“This includes work to transform the Waikanae and Paraparaumu town centres, improve pedestrian and cycling safety and accessibility around the district and make State Highway 1 a local road.
Members of the Council team will be onsite in the atrium of Coastlands Mall from 11am to 1pm each day from 25 to 28 July.
“We’re keen to talk to our community about key projects to be progressed this financial year and to hear people’s thoughts on how we can build on our district’s strengths to help realise the benefits of the expressways,” Ms Stevenson says.
“Community feedback will help ensure our plans for the long term reflect changes in the local and wider environment and people’s changing aspirations for the future of Kāpiti.”
Further information about the Council’s work to take advantage of the opportunities the expressways provide is available on the Council’s website www.kapiticoast.govt.nz/Your-Council/Projects/Expressways/
