Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board Plan

Have we got it right?

Have your say on your draft Local Board Plan. The Local Board Plan is the three-year strategic document that sets the direction and priorities for the Local Board. It guides what the Local Board will fund, what it advocates for, and most importantly how it will support the community. The draft plan reflects what we heard from the community earlier this year, and the Local Board looks forward to hearing what you think about this plan.
