Design a new 'Welcome to Waikanae' sign!
The Waikanae Community Board is running a competition for the design of a new sign to replace the current ‘Welcome to Waikanae’ signs on SH1.
Waikanae Community Board chair Eric Gregory said the current signs are past their best and don’t reflect what Waikanae has to offer.
“We are a town of beautiful gardens and we’ve just won this year’s ‘Most Beautiful Large Town in New Zealand’ award.
“The current signs were made for the year 2000. Here we are 15 years later, a much changed community and about to start a multi-year programme to transform our town centre. We need to show off a bit.
“We are looking for a design that reflects Waikanae’s special characteristics - be it our historical connection to the Whakarongotai Mārae, our arts and culture or our beautiful beaches, rivers and gardens.”
The competition is open to all residents and the winner of the chosen design will receive a $500 prize.
Entries must be received no later than Friday 4 March, 2016 and the winner will be announced on Monday 21 March, 2016.
Go to www.kapiticoast.govt.nz/waikanaesign for the entry form and criteria. Entry forms are also available at Waikanae Library, Paraparaumu Library and Council offices on Rimu Road.
