This plan outlines our vision and priorities for the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community and will guide our decisions on local activities, projects and facilities over the next three years.

We are asking for your feedback on our vision and priorities for the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes community as part of our Community Board Plan.

Background

A Community Board Plan is a three-year plan that sets out the Community Board’s vision and priorities for the local community.

These Plans will guide the Board’s decisions on local activities, projects and facilities and our advocacy on behalf of our communities.

Each Community Board Plan will identify up to nine priorities, which the Community Board will focus on during the term. 

The Board is now developing its 2020 – 2022 Community Board Plan in conversations with our communities, with the aim to adopt the Plan by April 2020.
