Do you want to know more about the Omokoroa to Tauranga Cycle Trail? Have you heard about the Mobile Library? Do you have a plan in place for your family in case of emergency? Do you need some funding to assist with a local community project?

These are just some of the topics you can discuss with Elected Members, council staff and local community groups at Tauranga City Council's next Community Connections get-together on Tuesday, 10 May from 6.30pm to 8pm at the Otumoetai Baptist Church Hall.

Community Development Committee Chair Steve Morris said Community Connections was a chance for residents to talk to councillors and council staff, as well as representatives from a great range of community organisations.

"The get-together is a great way to find out more about local projects such as the Omokoroa to Tauranga Cycle Trail. We'll also have representatives from the Emergency Management Response Unit, as well as staff from our Mobile Library and Customer Service Centre to help you with any queries," Mr Morris said.


"We've got another great line-up of representatives from local groups, who will have stands that people can visit to ask questions, get information or simply have a chat.

"The informal setting means that our community members can drop in at any time that suits them, to share their ideas and ask questions."

Representatives from the following groups will be there on the night:

• Neighbourhood Support
• Sustainability Options
• Age Concern
• Matua Residents Association
• Lions Club of Otumoetai
• Sport Bay of Plenty
