Following on from the successful 2013/14 and 2015/16 Streets Ahead schemes in Waihi East,
the Forum announced its latest Streets Ahead project - a $300 Street Front Home Improvement grant -for each home in Waihi East.
Streets Ahead Project 2 - Waihi East Community Green Space
During school hours over 160 children from our community will be able to enjoy new playground facilities and after school, at weekends and during school holidays, our community can enjoy these facilities too. Maintenance of the new green space will be taken care of by Waihi East School, and the school's security cameras, will help deter vandals.
Streets Ahead Project 1 - Home Improvement Grant
82% of the Waihi East community took part in the scheme, and remaining funds were rolled over for future Streets Ahead projects.
