Sarah Stevenson, Strategy and Planning Group Manager at KCDC.
Kapiti Coast District Council is inviting the community to visit their stand in Coastlands next week to find out more about its work to make the most of the opportunities the Expressway brings to the district.
Group Manager Strategy and Planning Sarah Stevenson says the Council has a programme of work underway that aims to take advantage of the opportunities created by the Expressway.
"Our stand in Coastlands describes what we are planning and what we've been doing. This includes work to transform the Paraparaumu and Waikanae town centres and make the existing State Highway 1 a fit-for-purpose local road."
Members of the Council team will be onsite at Coastlands from 11am to 1pm each day from 14 to 18 March to hear what people think and respond to questions.
"We're keen to talk to the community about its plans and for people to get involved in the work of the Council," Ms Stevenson says.
If you can't make it to Coastlands next week, the Council will have material on display in Mahara Place, Waikanae from 21 to 25 March.
Alternatively, information is available on the Council's website www.kapiticoast.govt.nz
