Tawa Community Board news clippings

How the Tawa Community Board came into being:

Tawa had been an independent borough since the 1950s, and was run very efficiently by the Tawa Borough Council. However the Local Government Commission decreed on 3 October 1988 that the Borough of Tawa would be amalgamated with Wellington City. In 1989 the Tawa Community Board was set up to replace the Borough Council.
