Papamoa Residents and Ratepayers Association

We are one of the largest and influential community voices in Tauranga City. Achievements include persuading Tauranga City Council to reconsider tsunami sirens, getting work on evacuation routes started and the retention of the Mount-Papamoa Ward in local elections. Papamoa is a rapidly growing suburb (now larger than Mount Maunganui) and we believe the residents should have more say in its development, particularly the development of the infrastructure.

Our meetings feature relevant and informative guest speakers as well as City Councillors. These meetings provide an excellent forum for members to raise their concerns with each other and voice their opinions directly to leaders in our community.

Get involved and come along to one of our meetings and see for yourself. You can also follow us on our Facebook Page.

We look forward to meeting you.

Next Guest Speaker:

June 11th    Jordan Williams, Exec Director of  Taxpayers Union of New Zealand who has been standing up for hardworking New Zealand taxpayers since 2013. The vision for the NZ Taxpayers Union is for a prosperous low tax New Zealand with efficient, transparent, and accountable government which also includes local government.
