Earthquake assessment of Museum building
The Kapiti Coast District Council has advised us that the full seismic assessment of the Otaki Museum building has been completed. The assessment has confirmed that the Museum building is earthquake prone ie. it is under 34 percent of New Building Standards.
The Council has advised it will not insist on the building being closed or that its use will be restricted.
However, the Council and the Trust wish to make people aware of the building status and that they enter it at their own risk.
