The Tasman Area Community Association (TACA) was formed in 1989. It is a volunteer organisation that aims to:

  • Give the people of Tasman a collective voice for dealing with large issues
  • Work with the Tasman District Council to ensure Tasman/Kina is well represented
  • Improve the environment of Tasman
  • Work with the community to support it in making it a better place to live and work

Here is a copy of the TACA Constitution

In the past years, TACA has been instrumental in arranging or assisting in the following:

  • Beautification of the Tasman Reserve
  • Implementation of the Pump Track at the Tasman Reserve and planting out a community orchard
  • Assistance with Taste Tasman
  • Road safety signs on Kina Beach Road
  • Setting up walking tracks on Unformed Legal Roads in the area
  • Working at making the old sawmill site a scenic area for the community
  • Continuing to make welcome packs available for newcomers to the area
  • Erecting bus shelters for school children
  • Fundraising to co-fund the purchase of Baigent Reserve with TDC from Cater Holt Harvey  in 2013 to ensure the reserve stays in public hands
  • Regular working bees in Baigent Reserve to create a native revegetation project on the reserve on Kina Peninsula.
  • Fundraising to co-fund the purchase of a BBQ with a covering shelter within Baigent Reserve
  • Assistance to the Ruby Coast Initiative Trust to enable the construction of the first Aporo Gateway Sculpture at the entry point to Tasman and the Ruby Coast

As TACA is a community organisation, why not become involved, attend a meeting, help at a working bee, or join the committee.
