Not entirely fair, Steve. I agree that too much talk/talk gets us nowhere, but it’s still early days to write this summer off as one of mayhem, as we all agree last year’s was.
Right now we need to pull together with our Council and give them the benefit of the doubt.
I too recognise that the jury is still out. But let’s wait and see while hoping for the best. If we are proven wrong and they show themselves incompetent, that will be the time to cry doom and gloom.
For the record, last Tuesday’s meeting was the first on this topic I have been to this year. And living right in The Gap, as opposed to out past the clay-pans, I am well aware of when the shit hits the fan.
Also for the record, the sniping from the rear is coming from within Council, not from the gallery.

The town is safe in public servants’ hands: forum told
The Town Council is neither a housing authority, nor does it have any policing powers. The Rangers do what they can, but their power is limited to infringement notices dealing with by-laws.
Boycotting public meetings is counter productive. Don’t attend if you don’t want to, but why make such a song and dance of it?
The Mayor is attempting to lead from the front. Others are sniping from the rear.
There is becoming an obvious attempt to “white ant” Mayor Ryan and the 11th ASTC.
Social unrest is being used as a Trojan Horse.
Our local politics have gone mad.
Or has the March election started early?

“Every consultation we have done shows the CBD location is the preferred location, and that’s the only location that offers a sense of place and has the space to be able to do it.”
That comment is simply not true.

This is beginning to feel like stalking. What part of “no” doesn’t this man understand?


Wakefield insists on Anzac Oval, ignores majority
Once again it seems to be a case of our way or the highway.
When this location debate first came up, I was of the opinion that the Desert Park was the right choice. But then the traditional owners spoke up at the council meeting debating to MOU or not to MOU, and the TOs seemed to be united in wanting any gallery to be south of The Gap.
So what’s the problem?
If revitalising the CBD is truly the aim, build flats there, and build a skate park at the river end of Parsons Street, and make the area vibrant again.

Any update from Alex Nelson on the heritage application for the Anzac site?
