Turakina Community Committee Update February 16, 2018 The Turakina Community Committee have been active in placemaking activities around the town. Placemaking activities aim to increase the use of public spaces. An initial project was the installation of two picnic tables on the road reserve across from the petrol station. Future plans include painting of the bus shelter in the colours of the Turakina Tartan, updating signs about Turkaina and the placement of seating around the town. The Committee is also seeking to have wider engagement with communities in the Committee’s area including – Koitiata, Whangaehu and Kauangaroa.
