About TACA

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 and its Objectives

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

  • Beginning an ambitious revegetation project, the Te Mamaku Native Corridor Planting Project creating a native tree corridor between the Moutere Inlet and the Waimea Estuary between Tasman & Māpua.

  • 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

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