Committee 4 Rochester has incorporation in its sights.
The group, which formed in September last year, will make a final decision on whether it should become a legal entity at its next meeting in early March.
The ‘Committee for’ groups, based in towns and cities around the country, are typically non-political lobby groups to advocate for residents within communities.
Project officer Graeme Robertson said becoming a legal entity would make it easier for the group to apply for funding grants.
As part of the incorporation process, C4R will also review its memberships to ensure the ‘‘entire Rochester community’’ is represented in the group, according to Mr Robertson.
Mr Robertson said the committee sought links with all current local groups and organisations.
‘‘(We want to) check to see if all relevant organisations are connected and interested community members are involved,’’ he said.
The committee discussed a range of potential projects which it could seek funding for at its monthly meeting last Tuesday.
Mr Robertson said C4R would look at working with and supporting local groups pursuing various projects around the town.
Potential projects include river front access improvements, a mural project in conjunction with the 150 year celebration of the railway coming through Rochester and the Moore St development, which includes the installation of curbs, guttering, car parking and town features along Moore St.
