Memorandum of understanding between Massey and Council

30 November 2012

Memorandum of understanding signed between Massey and City Council

In recognition of an excellent working relationship Palmerston North City Council and Massey University will sign a Memorandum of Understanding on Friday 30 November 2012.

The Memorandum of Understanding has been drawn up to acknowledge and build on sustainable regional growth in Palmerston North. It also supports the Council’s vision that the City is recognised as vibrant, caring, innovative and sustainable.

The agreement will recognise Massey University’s role as a contributor to growth in the region. Massey University Vice-Chancellor Steve Maharey said that strengthening connections with local, national and international partners and stakeholders to gain mutually beneficial outcomes is one of Massey University's key strategic goals.

“There is no other community with which we have a more longstanding relationship than the Manawatū and the Palmerston North City Council is central to that on-going engagement," he said.

Palmerston North Mayor, Jono Naylor said that the agreement cemented a relationship that is beneficial to both the City and region. “Palmerston North is a national centre of excellence for education. PNCC and Massey University have shared interests concerning infrastructure and development of the City.”

The MOU will enhance recreation, cultural, sustainability and life-long learning opportunities within the City.

The agreement will be signed at 5:30pm this evening in the Missoula Room at Palmerston North City Council.
